    I live in Dallas and know a couple good places to wheel (360 in Arlington and Frisco) If anybody knows of more I would like to hear of them. Thinking of starting an anti jeep club.....Brett

    They are out by the airport on 4th Army Rd. you have to do some bypassing of corn fields, but the trails are great, they are LEGAL and its kind of a cool scene sometimes. Alot of people go out there. There are also some good, short trails around the creek off of stonebrook. I live in Frisco too, I will be around this weekend working on my BLAZER. I'd be more than happy to show you around. I know these trails better than anybody. Brett 972-849-5915

    Hey in case you haven't heard, Ft Worth is fixing to close down 360, land owners are bitchin' and way way to much weirdness out there, they're going out there with horses, bikes,motorcycles, and are issuing tickets and confiscating vehicles that are illegal, all this according to the Star Telegram and the Ft Worth Police Dept, there is other areas in the Colony, Benbrook, and Denton...White Knight CLRR

    Hey Texans,
    I'm not from there but maybe you guy's around that area should join together and do a trail clean up and make a day out of it that would show the oppisition that someone care's. Maybe you guys could form a club and adopt some of the local trails. Just a thought.

    Corey I agree however thats not the problem out there at 360, drugs ,gangs,vandalism, violence is common place out there, its not a very nice place (got some great trails however) one of my wheeling buddies lost his rig there, it broke down, he hiked out to get help (violated number one rule wheeling solo) and by the time he got back, well lets just say it would bring tears to your eyes. For the longest time the Police wouldn't even go in there, well now they're pissed and are gonna close it down...WK

    D9B, it's okay, the "quote" vultures will get there own someday, I hope I see 'em broke down and stranded, drive right on by, well no I won't, nobody deserves that, but you know what I mean, I won't live My Knight anywhere, I'd sleep in it if I had too. And thats one reason one of my assessories is a Llama Mini-Max .45 caliber, with two extra clips full of Hydro-shocks!!!! White Knight CLRR

    Re: TEXAS / DFW frameshop?

    Hey fellow DFW residents. I wasn't aware of that club but its good to know there's one with some blazer owners in it, The ones I'm familiar with are mostly full of jeepers (nothing bad with a jeep, just saying)

    I have been to 360 and spoken with one of the owners, and one of the main problems that they have is that they have some gas pipeline's right-of-ways on which the pipelines are visible/over ground, and some people are driving over them and cracking them. They are worried that unless this is resolved not only does it cost them money to fix, but at ~5000 gallons of gas per minute, ... you get the picture.
    Also, of course that the place is just about out of hand, with everyone doing whatever they please.

    While I'm writing, I have a question for DFW residents, anyone know of a decent frameshop in this area?

    I ate a mountain-side with my '79 jimmy and bent the frame a bit, and I'm looking for a frameshop that wont charge me and arm and a leg, but that will get the axles parallel and the truck level and strong.
    Otherwise everything runs well, and the body is rust free and in decent shape.
    Would hate to have to sell it, because I know I probably couldn't buy another.(Wish I could)

    Good luck

    Javier

    Re: TEXAS / DFW frameshop?

    Hey BigB and Knight, that Benbrook idea sounds great. I am putting a new motor in mi negra bonita (my beautifull black girl). I should have it broke in and ready in a week or two. Then I can also show you The N. Dallas trails as well.

    Javier, I would call 4wd wholesalers, 4wd lee's in carrollton or that place in Arlington and ask them about frame shops. Where do you live ? Know any trails in big D?

    Re: TEXAS / DFW frameshop?

    Thanks, those are in the places-to-call list, i just haven't quite yet.
    I live in Dallas just east of I-75, about greenville ave and lovers lane.
    The 360 trails south of the DFW airport are great but a bit of on the trashed side depending in which parts. I know there suppose to be some trails in Denton, and Mckinney next to the lake but I haven't had a chance to go.
    Good luck

    Javier

    Oh yeah! I'll have mine running this summer, never done though I'm afraid. I'll have to come down there and hit some of those trails. I'm about midway between Dallas and Clayton, Ok. hmmmm...
