In the Heart of Dixie.

Just about all of this land down here is leased to hunters on timber co lands
and you cannot ride just anywhere anymore like you could about 10 yrs ago,because of the people leasing the lands have put up cables and barricades to some really good riding trails.
We have a lot of good bottoms land,hills and sandy areas that have been closed off to people that could go and ride all day long in some of the best areas to test what their wheelers could or could not do.
But that has all changed now!There is not to many places set up in Arkansas
for just recreational wheeler riding.
The leases of the hunting land could turn you in to the local sheriffs department for tresspassing on the lands that they have leased for hunting when all most of the people are doing are riding for the fun of it and seeing different country.
10 yrs ago! It was not uncomin to see packs of 20 wheelers in one group just out havin a good time riding out the different terrain.

Hey HardrivenGrizz !

Proud to have a nieghbor in here from the South! Read about your front end problem, and I have the same problem with my Big Bear.

I loaned it out to my brother in-law this last hunting season and one of the ball joints popped out from the control arm.It is a 1987 model that has been put through the wringer, and the splines that help hold the ball joint stem that goes through the spindle was probably wore out.Any way! He hit a good bump and it popped out and did the split`s on the lower control arm pulled the inner part of the cv housing out of the differential just like yours did.

I guess I will have to get a book and blue prints on what is holding this housing in the differntial.There has to be some kind of clip that keeps the housing from coming out of the diff.

HardrivenGrizz!

The Ouchita river bottoms down here around Calion is in my back yard.Live close to the Thatcher lock and dam,and our deer lease is all around it.So I don,t have far to go to make some ruts.

As far as where you live, I spent a whole Summer up there working on trying to get a new trucking terminal started out of one of the offices at the Petro truck stop in West Memphis,Ar.Drove up from El Dorado every Monday and back home every Friday afternoon for about 4 months.Know the area up there pretty well.

Hello Folks,
Swampy Joe,I have the same problem about the land around here.I was raised in these hills and vallys around here.We have miles trails and somebody with lots of money bought it(miles of it).Now he has posted it,or leased it out to hunting clubs.The sad thing about it is that the trails lead right into my back yard...so tird of all of this,it has all changed so much over the years.I called the guy and asked him if I could ride on the land ,he just said,why dont you and yours buddys just purchase about a 1000 acares or so...hmmm oh well the state has miles and miles of horse,and walking trails,what about the atv,s...hope you all have a good day..just wanted to put in my 2 cents Thanks ice660

Grenada Lake is a good place to ride right now here in Ms....the Corp of Engineers lower the lake this time of year for flood control and thousands of quads and trucks are out there on the weekends.
