Itching to go. Saturday will be beautiful but Sunday sloppy.

Wondering if the trails there are still nasty from this past weeks weather.

Gilmer muddy is a lot of messy.

That's why I bought it!
Plus this place seems to have a lot of easier trails, like the green at Bridgeport. Saw a few Youtube video's, some places I would NOT go tho!

I am definitely going out there soon. Sister and brother in law just got a RZR and want to try it out. The OHV sticker will work, but be warned, they don't have any in stock at the place, they say they do, but they don't. Also, they charge you for EVERYTHING out there, even the damned maps!

It's an extremely fun park though.

I got my OHV sticker last weekend in Bridgeport, so ready to go try out a few "armature" trails. We need to make a GTG out there too, see how many Stanger's can over take that place!

I'm going out there Friday. Don't know what you drive, but the level 2 trails are good for mostly stock. A guy in a 4x4 ranger was managing them fine. Level 3 trails, I would recommend a winch. I was handling most level 3 trails with my Brute Force 750 four wheeler, but the Ranger followed me and got so incredibly stuck.

I've got an F-150 and no winch, just Toyo AT II's. Level 2 it is!

Iíd rather pay up at barnwell than going to Bridgeport. We go to barnwell for days at a time. A few hours at Bridgeport and I feel like I took a beating.

Bridgeport is a lot closer for me, like 45 minutes vs a couple hours. I do plan on a day trip out there tho, then maybe hit up Shreveport for the evening and return home the next day.

I'm pissed at my truck now, with the damn ecoboost engine, nobody makes a mount for a winch, they block the intercooler and I've heard of people having warranty issues. There is one bumper with a winch mount, but it is ugly as fuck, and way too biog for what I want. Goes over the headlights and grill for more protection. I just want a simple winch up front in case I get stuck and need to pull myself out!

They are both those same distances for me. Barnwell is just a better park with better crowd. I donít have to dodge the drunks at 1 there like Iíve had to at Bridgeport.

Barnwell is definitely fun. I absolutely got my ass kicked out there last friday. Flipped my brute force over on a steep climb, got lucky and it caught on the bank, straight up in a wheelie position, and it didn't follow me. Didn't stop me from running/sliding down that hill, thinking it was following me.

Went out to River Run on saturday, in Jacksonville. Brute handles mud a whole lot better than hills.

I had this link saved from when I looked into it a few months ago.

From what I understand, there is also a removable mount that you can use that won't interfere with the intercooler as you remove it when driving.

Check out the Fab Fours stuff. I run their Premium bumpers front and rear, and they are solid. They do make some fugly stuff, too (Grumper, Vicowl) but just ignore those product lines.

They have this one that's just the winch mount. https://fabfours.com/wp-content/uplo...in_Header1.jpg

And here is the Premium front bumper. You can get it with or without the extra bar. https://fabfours.com/wp-content/uplo...H4552-1_v1.jpg

Thanks Jose and Jluv!
I also found a winch tray on Stage 3 Motorsports that looks decent, and is $200
Just needs a low profile or smaller winch not to block the intercooler, and I think I found one on Amazon for like $560, 9,000 lbs and water resistant.

Damnit, on the winch mount when I searched for an 18... We're sorry, Fab Fours Winches & Recovery Gear are not currently offered for your Ford F-150.

Hmmm. That's strange. I pulled it right up from their website. That's where I got that pic. 2015-2019, part number FF15-N3250-1.
