I used to wheel my LR3 a few years back. After playing around with some other Rovers and mostly Toyotas I bought, modified, and wheeled a FJ Cruiser but eventually came back to buy and wheel my Defender.
My major problem is I want to trailer my 90 to the places I wheel so I can wheel a little harder with less fear. Last time out I drove 400 miles home with a 5th gear that sounded like metal clicking around in the tranny. Ans we don't have enough places to wheel in or around Illinois!

If you guys want to go to ringwood, join R.O.V.E.R.S.

One of our members set up an agreement with the rangers. We help clean up the park (including dragging out abandoned cars) in exchange the club gets to use the trails to get there to clean things up.

The club is really a model of 4x4 citizenry and I think because we don't do a "big event" like MAR (but rather 5-6 smaller events per year) people don't notice us as much.

For example, trials are Oct 23 and 24th. roversclub.org for info

I used to take the truck out about once a month or so from 1998 when I got it, till I came down with Ulcerative Colitus in 2004.. UC pretty much took the fun out of it. Took the fun out of lots of things. Still have the truck though, I'm not sure what I want to do with it anymore.

No, your condition is normal..all here have UC to some degree.
New springs and shocks should cure the problem!

I joined ROVERS for a year right after I bought the 90. Seemed like a cool club and all but events for me right now in my life are always last minute with my family schedule. I do trail maintenance for the mtn bike/hiking trails in the area and can really appreciate what they do to clean up the woods. Until you do it, you do not really understand how much work is involved.

But now that you mention it, I'll check the ROVERS page and forum for events and updates more frequently now.

I think this poll is skewed in that people who are not interested in wheeling are not chiming in (or voting). In my personal observation, here is no way 68% of owners wheel their trucks.

I'm waiting to go wheeling before I answer this poll.

Poll doesn't work on forum runner. Waiting until Chris updates this weekend to see if it fixes it.

I thought this kinda poll was the excuse to own multiple Rovers- first one to wheel, then one to explore- built, but more storage/range, and of course a nice low mile unique animal like a TReK. Sadly, the nicer it is , the more it becons to be wheeled?! The 130 sideways on Caney Fork was a handful:-) as was this 30k mile 90...
