Fire Extinguisher   Every rig out on the trail should have some basic equipment to aid you in the event something happens on the trail. While there are thousands of options for many types of products, we're going to attempt to highlight some of the basics to get started with. You'll see the products we'd recommend you take a look at via Amazon...
The winch is one of the most commonly neglected accessories of the 4x4. Most folks who have a winch tend to install it and forget it. Every 30-60 days, you'll want to cycle your winch if it hasn't been used to test and heat up the winch to help burn out any condensation that may be gathered during normal driving.  As you can guess, moisture an...

There was much information on trails in Jefferson County and their issues and accomplishments—none of these trails are for Four Wheel Drive. One of the statements made was how much "words and actions matter". A Southern Kettle Moraine Horse Trail Association in...
What an amazing trip we had yesterday! It was the first time where I hosted a "whip it up quick" event and just posted it on the Wrangler Riders of SEWI page. The idea was to test the new Trail Guide Ambassador system where certified guides can make their own social ride events within our system much like the larger events. The idea is to have 5 ri...

First I'd like to thank those of you who came to our multiple meetings for the SCORP surveys. Your participation was key to getting 4WDs / RL4WDs into the plan in the first place.
