We all started somewhere! I want to see the rig that got your addiction started!

While this wasn't my first time out, and might not even be the first photo, It is the earliest photo that exists to my knowledge.

Circa 2006, 3" lift, 32" mud terrains, open/open.

Ok Hell, I 'll play along, I was saving this pic for another thread, but I think this is what got me into the "Jeep thing".
This probably was my first wheelin pic, circa 1958, on the Naches Trail. I think the road ended at Timothy Meadow,
and you had to cross the river like 7 or 8 times. That's me on Mom's lap, no seat belts, no roll bar, but I'm having fun! :baby:

My jeep started life as a column shift. They are actually rare.

2000 XJ, open diffs, 2.5" lift, 31s .... ooooooo I thought I was a happenin dude. Until I got around wheelin nuts with more balls than brains ... then I did the Rubicon with my cousin in his 04 TJ and several others with modified rigs. Shit, from that point there was no way out, I was hooked.

This is where the off-road bug really started though....

I'd have to say a D4 catipillar was my first love for the trails. I logged from 12 - 18, ever since then, I had to hit them trails.
For a while I did the baha bug thing, It served it's purpose. R.I.P.
But here's a picture of Trail Beast when I first got it. I bought it on the border of Mexico in '92

Holy hell, did it really only take 2.5ish years to go from that to this? It seems like more than that.

Thats what I thought.   I was hoping for 3.5 years.  It was at 2 birthday boggins, 2 snow challenges.  So 2.5 is correct.

My Family owns over 1000 acres in the Blues outside of the Walla Walla / Waitsburg / Dayton area. My Grandfather logged that land for over 60 yrs before he left. My Dad's running the show now, but he's not using it for anything but hunting. All the cattle are gone, & the lumber business is dried up around there. But a D4 was great for building roads, & dragging logs to the landing. We'd cut 32' lengths on the hill, & then cut them down to 16' before loading onto the truck. Sometimes loads went to the mill, sometimes it got delivered as firewood. Our truck hauled 6 cord.

Back in '86, I started wheeling my almost new '85 Toyota 4x4. I lived on the West Side of the state, and wheeled Evan's Creek mostly, with a little Na-Cheeze thrown in. I wheeled it, beat it, and rolled it. That thing just would not die.  All my pics of it burnt up in a fire years ago (along with both my Yotas), but I found this one. I won first place in the obstacle course at a Les Schwab Tough Truck competition in Oly Wa. Check the mullet!

After a dirt bike accident, I bought the Jeep. I put some HUGE 32" tires on it, a budget boost lift, and Bushwacker flares. I later joined the Tri Cities Peakputters. The pics are from the first run I went on with them. I got stuck a lot.
