    Here is the nearly finished product for the support vehicle for Redbird State Riding Area. It's pretty cool, Just volunteers from IFWDA and Redbird has been putting this together.

    It was just a 80,000mi Bronco when started. Most everything was donated, Warn winch, Gears, Lockrights, Rims, Tires, Some local built the bumper which is very stout, recovery gear, lights, jacks.

    Now it just needs a jeep on a tow strap behind it, hopefully not a K5!

    That's a 10-4 or strap 3 little TJ's back to back to it. Along as there isn't a purple POS strapped to the back:haha: , it's bad enough to get yanked by a jeep but a FORD-never!:shame:

    Yanked by a jeep? Is that possible? We've had a few times that my friends CJ wasnt enough so we had to get the big guns. A 99 F250 or some other truck. How about some more info on this riding area, they have a site?

    It's old coal mining land. Mostly woods trails but many wide open wheelin' areas too. State owned and ran by a management group. South east of Terre Haute about 30-40 miles, between Dugger and Linton Indiana.
    Here's the website. www.redbirdsra.com
