    Sure do! Every week to the quarry for shootin'. All of 780' from the road. Hey, it's tricky, 'specially in winter, with snow a foot deep. HAH!

    I do have to go for a half mile of gravel and talcum powder road, which turns to shit in winter, to get to pavement whenever I go out. That's why it looks like I go off road. HEH!

    50 is way too high. If you're on the stock tires, you should be at 32. If stock size LT tires, then 44. Your tires will wear uneven at 50.

    mine is mostly a soccer game ride these days. we did take her up to Helen, Ga in June and got into some dirt and some pretty fair (for a Mississippi/Florida guy) inclines. about the only real mud she sees around here though is the mile or so of marsh we have to go to, to get to the local shooting range.

    The truck has 3,500 miles on it. 1,000+ have been on trails. A few of those trails were what I'd rate as "moderate." So to answer your question: Yes, all the time.

    I've taken my stock OR on a number of Forest Service Roads in Pisgah National Forest a few times. These are nothing more than groomed gravel roads in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Since I'm usually solo, don't have any recovery gear, and more importantly, don't have the experience, I lean more to the conservative side of what I put my 4R into at the moment.

    Once I get some more experience, I'll start venturing further into the wilds. I have been extremely happy with this vehicle.

    Bought it specifically for off road overlanding. It's gonna pull a off road trailer. We got an Outback and Miata for streets.

    I had a similar thing happen to me this past weekend. Was driving along chatting with a passenger and bam fell into a hole. Lifted a rear wheel. Was able to turn into it / turn down hill and drive out.

    No body damage hopefully?

    I painted my boo boo with some super white from Autozone. From 5 feet away, looks good. Up close? 90 year old with veracose veins! Oh well...

    Well done. Reminds me of a DIY I did on a white car of mine. Wind caught the passenger door and slammed it into a steel post. Bent the door in along the edge, more than a foot in length. And cracked the paint all the way to bare metal, about 10 inches in length. I hammered the bent metal back into place then applied multiple layers of touchup paint to the cracked area, with some light sanding in between. I was quite proud of the line I got hammering the metal back where it should be. Even the paint looked ok (especially in the rain LOL).

    Before and after:

    the hammering was a process. used a block of wood to direct and soften the blows. worked on it on and off for a few days until it was just right.

    I’m not knocking you or the pictures at all, but I needed to point out the irony of posting a picture on the dirt shoulder of a paved road in a thread about if people really take them off-road.

    I’m still itching to get to Utah. NPS cancelled my permits for a long trip I had planned for this past spring. It seems like something always comes up when I try to go to Utah. This is no joke the 4th time something out of ordinary has screwed up my Utah plans. I live in Colorado and I’ve never been to Utah.

    Hahah yea that would really suck but it was decently hot and the front was pointed directly into the sun and we had 4 days of dispersed camping so I tried to keep it as cool as possible

    That photo was taken in Zion np - yes it’s on the side of the road but she looked good against the rocks. We dispersed camped for 4 nights out at Smithsonian butte. If you make it out there to Zion, camp there and head up the hill for a better view!

    I've taken my stock Off Road on some FS roads and trails in state parks and Wildlife Management Areas in Southern NC and Northern SC quite a few times. Nothing to brag about, but I did get it beached in a decent mud puddle when I only had my 6 year old with me. I'm not sure what combination of ATRAC, CRAWL, or Locker worked, but it took about 5 minutes before it pulled itself out. That moment solidified and reinforced my love for this thing, especially on the stock Dunlops.

    I will say that when that muddy water hits the hot exhaust, it makes a hell of a stink. My 6 year old kept asking me if I was farting.

    I will say I am jealous seeing all the wonderful scenery you west coast members have :cheers:
