New member in Denton/DFW area.
Missed the DFWTX4WD but if there is another meet planned I'm down. I don't know of any places (or people) around here.

As mentioned above, as long as it isn't something where I need a super built truck because I have a stock 02 sport.

MegaRun at Barnwell check out facebook DFW TX 4WD; trails from stock to difficult, raffle and perfect for stock rigs. Great camping as well.

Hey there Texas people, My brother and I are going to Barnwell for the day next Saturday, March 26th, if anyone would care to join us. We don’t do anything too crazy, usually just stick to the north east side of the park where most of the trails are 2-3’s, (on a 1-5 scale) We will be arriving at about 9am at the park

Sorry for the late update, but Gilmer was a blast, I'll try to get the photos and videos up this weekend. Also went out to Northwest OHV park in Bridgeport a few weeks ago, I'll get pics and video of that day up over the weekend as well.

Also, I'm thinking of going to Bridgeport tomorrow, I know, last minute invite as always. But I plan on getting there when the gate opens at 8, and only playing until about noon or so

Great day at Northwest OHV park in Bridgeport, Tx today!! I went out there with a buddy in a Tj sitting on 33's with a 3" lift. Had to pull him out of one hairy spot, but all in all, a good day. We were still able to drive home, lol. I'll have pics and video posted up tomorrow

Sweet!! Welcome to the 'zoo'. Next scheduled outing for me is the weekend of March 25th. We are heading to Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area in Gilmer, about 2.5hrs east of Dallas. We will be getting there Friday night, wheel on sat, then come home Sunday. It'll be me in my '97 SLX, about 3 keeps, and I think a K5 blazer

Add me to the Texas group as well. My little group of buddies does some pretty serious offroading once or twice a year (usually at least once to Moab). We are all in the DFW area, multiple Troopers including mine (99 SLX) and lots of decked Land Cruisers and a few Monteros. We'd be down for Barnwell in March.

Additionally we are looking to do a Rubicon trip in April (just putting feelers out now if anyone wants to join us). Some of our group are driving to the Rubi and some of us are shipping our rigs there on semis and flying. Let me know if anyone is interested.

New Member here. So Happy to see a Texas group, I'm down in San Antonio. I like going to Padre Island National Seashore to fish, camp, drink cold beer, and contemplate life. It's not super hard core wheeling, but deep soft sand is something, and incoming tides do put a hard time limit on solving a problem.
I'd love to get a group together to go there, I'm also interested in some Hill Country wheeling.
I just bought a 2000 Rodeo w/ the 3.2L that is bone stock, in fact it came w/ the original dirt in fact. :D
My first mission is to solve /repair all the codes, then I'll look at beefing it up.

Welcome to the 'Texas ZOO'!! The 3.2 is a solid engine, in my opinion. Usually, just a bunch of little things to track down in regards to the check engine light. Mainly time consuming, lol. There's lots of help here in this forum, just do some searching, and someone has probably already resolved some of the same issues your having. Then, poke around and look at some of the rigs that other members have built, to give yourself an idea of how mild, or wild, you want to go.

Maybe this fall, Oct/Nov, we could do a hill country Isuzu trail day.

Best regards

Jeremiah Moreno
