Auburn XJers

I recently moved to Auburn, Alabama, from California and have not found any local offroading clubs/groups. However, I have seen tons of built XJs around here and am hoping that at least some of them are folks. If you're here please let me know!

Hey Clay,
Sorry to hear you just moved from CA! Welcome to 'Bama...Roll Tide! Oops, that's the OTHER school! My family is in SoCal, and I've done some schooling in NorCal. I've been here in Bama for 7+ years now. I'm about an hour from B'ham. There is a good 4x4 park, Grayrock, north of B'ham, and apparently Morris Mountain? which is southeast of Bham I think. I haven't been there yet, but I've been invited to a charity run in April that I'm going to try to get to. Our Club, CAOS, I think has a run going there this month, and rides just about every month, if not more frequently. They are mostly around B'ham though. I'm not familiar with any trials in the Auburn area. Unfortunately, Bama ain't like SoCal. There were a ton of trails, all open to the public. It's not like that here, but it does seem to be getting better! We'll have to hook up. What are the specs of your rig, and where in CA did you escape from??
Welcome!
Andy

Re: Auburn XJers

I hope I never get too educated for a good time.

So far, I've seen a lot of sweet looking rigs around town but when I talk to folks, they pretty much tell me that there are very few places to go in this state, mostly national forests--not like NorCal. So are most of the rigs I see just built for show?

Rig specs:
1995 XJ, 4.0, 4 door, D30-locked, Chslr 8.25-open, RE 3.5" lift (full leafpack), 31" Trxus MTs, tow hooks front and rear, skids all around, Flowmaster catback exhaust system, K&N conical intake, and it leaks oil. (all work done with my own two hands)

Does your club have a website?

By your specs, minus the front locker, we've got pretty similar rigs. We'll have to get together. I'm always looking for "small tire" guys to hang with on the trail. A good bit of our club seems to be on 40's or so!

Re: Auburn XJers

Hey Clay welcome

I'm near Montgomery, not very far from you. I can't use mine (XJ) yet it's under construction ;^). I will be up and running soon though. Till then I stuck here web wheelin!

Feel free to PM me, I'd like to get together with some dedicated jeepers sometime.

Our riding pretty much sucks. Once your here in AL for awhile you will understand why. I have a few places you can ride if you want to go, it's pasture land complete with cows. No real trails but it's something to do.

Check out grayrockorv.com, they are a park and have events that are pretty fun.

Re: Auburn XJers

tompatjr: thanks for the offer. I will take you up on that sometime

ChuckstrPT: small tires make wheeling more challenging! and often more fun. 40s on an XJ seems unstable (unless you've cut the fenders completely off and removed the back portion of the vehicle).

So . . . does this mean that there aren't any folk in or around Auburn? (meaning closer than a hour away)

Re: Auburn XJers

40's are plenty stable, it's what they are attatched to that makes the difference

Ok, let me clarify...the 40's are not on XJ's...although it seems we are getting a good many XJ's joining up. I'll have to press them for membership.....
Hey- you could be the FIRST member in Auburn....did I mention the March Membership drive......step up to the plate....

Re: Auburn XJers

Just typed in auburn Alabama. I would loved to but Im taking the cpat that morning, then heading out to work. If you see some guys in a fj80 they are so cool guys and would be fun to wheel with.
