2013 New Year’s Day SMORR Run
We spent New Year’s Day wheeling at Southern Missouri Offroad Ranch (SMORR). Here are a few photos we snapped along the way. This is Toxic Crush in it’s natural habitat, a gas station.
SMORR has just under 1000 acres of land and 130+ trails to wheel. They are rated from 1 to 5. 1 are the main roads/trails and 5’s are pretty hard core. We stayed with 2’s and 3’s since everything was wet and slushy.
Here’s our group. I’m on the left, Scott has the TJ in the center and Matt’s new 2013 JK (Claymaker) is on the right.
It was a cold day. There was more snow was forecast but it just missed us.
With only 1400 miles on his new JK, Matt is breaking it in right.
The scenery was beautiful. It was a great way to start the new year.
We definitely had a lot of fun.
Only one issue/breakage today. Matt’s new Jeep is sporting a 4″ Rough Country lift. We found out it has a defective pitman arm. The pitman arm nut was almost off, it created a serious death wobble on the way home and steering was very difficult. This pic shows a quick repair in a McDonald’s parking lot to limp home.
Overall, it was a great experience with family and friends. We are looking forward to going again. Soon.
