Disney, Oklahoma Wheeling Trip

Picture of Brad


Our group in Disney, Ok

This past March a couple of friends and I met in Disney, Oklahoma at a public use off-road park. We made a weekend of it and camped nearby. The goal of the trip was to put our Jeeps to the test and enjoy the good weather. Travis had recently lifted his TJ (white Jeep shown on above on the right) and needed a shake down run. We only had to go to the parts store once. Overall, Disney delivered a great time.

Oklahoma Jeep Event

We expected some congestion with such great weather. Red Dirt Jeepers and a few other clubs were at the park this weekend.

Dave's TJ (with a TJ) grill in Disney Oklahoma

This is Dave and his TJ. Yes, it’s a TJ with a YJ grill. Why? Apparently, he had one lying around and the original one was toast. Dave is running a frankenstein lift that performs well. His Jeep is sitting on 35’s. His bumper is a custom concoction from a cut down ARB bumper. Dave is a bit of a tinkerer and usually has multiple projects going. This one is a budget wheeler composed from parts (and Jeeps) lying around his shop.

Running the elevation change at Disney

The park offers a variety of terrain.We began on the side with the elevation. This included steep climbs followed by steep descents. Erosion and other Jeeps have made parts of this area challenging. Primarily for Jeeps like mine with lower ground clearance.

Point-of-view during a water crossing. Low visibility is expected. Also, why distance between your Jeep and the Jeep in front of you is very important.

Jeep playing in mud pit at Disney OK

There was a time in my life when mud was fun. That is no longer the case for me. But, for those who still love it, I’m content to photograph them. Dave needed a bit more speed to push through the deep sticky Oklahoma mud and clay.

Annnnnnd, he’s stuck.

Muddy Jeep

But, he wasn’t stuck for long.

After getting stuck in the mud it is a good idea to rinse off with a few water crossings. That was next on our list.
