    Where should I NOT take my PSD?

    First post and a new member. I've done a portion of the Mojave Rd. from Baker to Goff's with nothing more than a little mesquite pinstripping. Are there any well known trails that I shouldn't even attempt if I want to keep the body straight? Mostly interested in California trails, but any related info is great too.

    Thanks,

    Todd

    What mods do you have to your truck? Lift, tires, lockers, and body armor?

    I live up in Big Bear and there are some great trails and fire roads. There are some tight trails that Jeeps hardly fit.

    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said:
    "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    I have found the size of my SD to be more limiting than its 4x4 ability. Amazon has some great off-road trail books, look up authors Massey and Wells.

    Just don't take your SD on any trails named after construction equipment or have the words "hell" or "death" in them.

    My truck's still a stock 2007 F250 FX4, 6.0L PSD. Planning on a leveling lift this summer when I get the 33's. Most of my wheeling is either Dove Springs, Mojave, or Ocotillo Wells after I drop off the toys.

    My favorite book so far is "The Mojave Road" by David Casabeir. It's the official trail guide with lots of Native American info on petroglyphs and Cavalry history.
