    Southern Off-road Adventure Rally in Florida

    Any of you Florida fellas going to this? I am definitely, but sure would be nice to have more than one Hummer in a sea of Jeeps.

    Hopefully your son is well enough that he could come and ride along. I have my daughter that weekend so I can continue to expose her to my gearheadedness by bringing her with me.

    Nice vid. There is a guy who posted his run on the Modified course last year; the obstacles don't seem too bad for our trucks, but I want to install the Outfitter Design front diff. bushings and steering reinforcement before I attempt it just to be safe. So maybe next year for the Modified course. Gonna be fun, I'm definitely going even if I'm the only Hummer.

    Agreed, It looks like fun. I'm totally stock so that's the one I'd do at least for now. Have to get going with some ucp and mods.

    Here's that Modified course run:

    The hilly part when he goes through the tree section is what I worry about high-centering it as Jeeps with better lifts would have an advantage.

    This was filmed during Jeeptoberfest, not the S.O.A.R. event, but they are held in the same place.

    I see lots of potential to high center or take a rock to the undercarriage. I'm a long ways from trying that one for sure. The exit hill seems like my diff would be dragging dirt, a tight squeeze and high center at top, as well as in beginning of video tight spot in between the trees with high center chance it seems. Could be my eyes playing tricks on me since on video lol. Spotters are key and some of them seem aloof at times and that's not good. If that's mid level what's the top tier one look like. The mid is doable but certain mods at minimum to even attempt. Kewl vid thanks for posting. I'm going to try to do some things maintenance wise and ucp etc wise to prep for possible run to check this out in person.

    Your h3 should more than be capable on the Stock course at least. After I saw the rocks at the end of the Modified run, i'll pass for now.

    I'd be worried about how tight those trails are personally.

    Ehhh, my H3 is full of pinstripes from branches and stuff. Just hate how hard it is to see out of our rides at times. OTOH our rides practically turn on a dime compared to a lot of SUVs. Also, friended a guy on FB who works there and according to him over 80,000lbs of new obstacle material has been added since last year, so these trails may now not look as they appear on the videos posted. Hopefully some of you can make it. I'll be there for sure.
