    Hi, new here, just got the T4R Trail Premium. The Premium part is very nice, but wanting to try out the Trail part of it now :)

    My wife and kiddo and I are going to Hidden Falls Park August 20th (Saturday). I think we have a few friends coming in Jeeps too, but I wanted to see if anyone lives nearby and wanted to come show us how it's done, we haven't off roaded much.

    In our stock form, we are going to stick to the easy trails (1-2 difficulty), but don't let our party-pooper-ness keep you from coming and doing the good stuff.

    Thanks!

    I'll keep you posted. Right now a family member of mine who's a police officer in Houston might join us along the road, and a buddy of mine from work is debating it. Neither have given a solid yes, but they don't usually flake, so I feel at least 1 of them will come.

    This place was awesome and we were there half a day and stuck to the park roads and a few easy trails. The park roads still required 4x4 and involved stream crossings and steep climbs to the top of a hill at elevation of about 1500ft.

    Trail was bone stock, never even needed the locker on the stuff we were on but the a-trac was handy. Didn't need crawl or MUlti terrain either. I didn't have a tire gauge with me (new car so still building kit and just forgot it) and we we got back realized I was at 40 PSI jeeze!!

    So not only did the stock tires do better than expected they did it overinflated.

    Still want some trail grapplers any ways but at least I can focus on other things till these wear out.

    Really cool park but everyone bailed and we went alone. Wife said she loved it. She understands why I want to go to Moab now and is talking about how to plan it.

    Certainly. I won't get back home till tomorrow but will do it them I promise. The pictures are very deceptive. This stuff looks more intimdating in real life. I guess that's true with many things.

    Here's a few unedited shots. I'll look through them all later and post a few more. 9b713380837aa2cb6b7d76875952fdb9_639b4b2984f9f7159587e9dc7b6cc6f1f0fe9521.jpgbf09daac17fccb4cc78d3b42b85216a1_4c41d33b6f4fa3c95a23a2ef0b232d16dd8e39a6.jpg6b5d83178d36c085065d6e51a70dc6bb_3f7da5c62d0aff17ee390a8816b2090f21ab3495.jpg86f36612234244e50e28656c70d6206b_d541fd45e993b8540ee859e2ca6eedbca2a27c29.jpg73d7b86887a70584e7a58cd551e8975e_076dfbaf5268043d2d4042f879835a14ae5b7f30.jpg

    Here's some more pics. Also, ironically from Orange > Marble Falls my son was awake and going stir crazy. We get to the park, BAM, asleep. I supposed we literally 'rocked' him to sleep LOL. We did wake him up for the waterfall and the top of the big hill. Both very cool, ran into a few people on the trails, everyone was friendly. Totally impressed with this thing in stock form, and now I have a reference to how much improvement mods actually will give. Sliders are now the priority, even over roof rack, because clearance was awesome, but those running boards were making me nervous.

    Suggestions for quality bolt ons? I liked the Demello ones, but I'm open to suggestion.
