Our Trailfest Excursion Rides have some amazing new destinations routed for 2017!

Guided Excursion Rides are included with admission to the event. 

  How about a visit on top of a rare Natural Bridge, or drive through a very historic institution they call “The University of the South”, or maybe better yet a cave so cool it's a true National Monument and where artifacts have been found dating back to some of the earliest human occurrences in North America. That's just the half of it! We also have a spectacular "Waterfalls Tour" route too!

Thanks our new SFWDA Vice President Kevin Woods for mapping this route out in advance for us. Full details coming soon but here is a sneak peek at what you can expect. The goal was to highlight some of the beauty and charm this great area has to offer for folks attending Trailfest. Let us show you around a few highlights of the area.

These guided SFWDA Excursion Rides are intended for folks with street legal rigs and/or daily drivers who still love the experience of the comradery, getting outdoors, and enjoying nature, but don't need to hit the black diamond trails to have a good time. Whether it's in the dirt, or on the parkway, its all about getting out exploring and enjoying nature.

Be sure to register online now so your ready to book your guided ride when the slots open up. This is going to be beautiful! https://www.sfwda.org/trailfest/

Edited 3/30 - Sign Up's are now open. Go to the Guided Rides Sign Up Page to join us before all spots are filled.

Spring 2017 SFWDA Meet & Ride will go down as a SUCCESS! Thanks to Hale Mountain OHV Park, and the Rocket City Rock Crawlers for leading.

 We helped bring out 75 people total to the park that day. 

 We helped bring out 75 people total to the park that day. 

  This is exactly what the SFWDA Meet N Rides are all about:  exposing folks to what Southern has going on these days, the accomplishments, status, and direction SFWDA is headed. 

 We helped bring out 75 people total to the park that day. Especially good when you can get this information in the ears of folks that may have never even had direct contact with Southern before.  At the same time, getting these people out on trails too and leading them through trails many of them have never experienced before. 

  The rain that the park saw overnight before the ride changed the equation a little bit for the difficulty level for everyone and momentum became the name of the game.  That, and some folks got some lessons on winch rigging and safety which is always good.  The "easy" group went through two rather difficult obstacles together as a team using straps and winches whenever necessary for those without lockers and less aggressive tires.  The route wouldn't have been quite as challenging when dry of course.  Moderate and hard groups also saw their fair share of challenges but it was expected and didn't stop anyone. 

  Many thanks to Hale Mountain for opening up their park for us and we hope that many of the attendees will re-visit the park, perhaps when it's a little dryer.   Also, thank you to SFWDA for covering the Chick-Fil-A biscuits and O.J. Saturday morning.  After all, we are Southern so what's a get-together without good food!  See y'all at Trailfest!

Great event for our club, SFWDA, and Hale Mountain Park. Thank y'all!

BESTOP has contributed an all new "TREKTOP NX" for the 1997-2017 Jeep Wrangler for one lucky person at our Trailfest 2017 Raffle!

You Could Win an this brand new
"TREKTOP NX"
for any 1997-2017 Jeep Wrangler from our friends at BesTop! 

Fits Any Year, Any Color, Any Body, Any Style

  We’ve covered all the angles. Bestop's innovative fastback styling has made Trektop NX the best selling soft top on the market today. Trektop NX is truly a complete soft top but doesn't need all the frame hardware and bows of traditional soft top designs. It takes advantage of the Wrangler's sport bars to give it shape and support for an easier installation. And there's an added bonus to the Trektop NX - just zip out the windows and it transforms into a Safari Bikini Top.  Learn More.... https://www.sfwda.org/bestop 

For 1997-2017 Wrangler TJ/JK models

  • Includes everything necessary for installation including factory-style header, tinted 30-mil side and rear windows, factory-style door surrounds and tailgate bar.
  • Our premium-quality multi-layer sailcloth fabric maintains its shape in all temperatures, is mildew-resistant, contains UV inhibitors.
  • Tailgate bar allows you to open tailgate without unzipping the rear window for trouble free access.
  • Top Arch Bar spans the space above the seating area to keep the top tight, reduce flapping, and minimize puddling.
  • Bestop's exclusive patented polymer Door Surrounds are based on the OEM surrounds we supply on factory Wranglers.
  • Fits factory full steel hard doors – also compatible with any Bestop door kit (sold separately).
  • Also available for 04-06 TJD Unlimited.

Register Today, Sign Up for your rides, and we'll see you May 4-7 @ AOP!

https://www.sfwda.org/trailfest/

Ultimate Dana 44 CV Axle Set

  Dana 44 U-joint axle shafts with a high-strength constant velocity design. Tests prove Ultimate CV Axles to be twice as strong as OEM Jeep JK shafts, and they're just as tough at a straight angle as they are at extreme angles - where U-joints are weakest. Ultimate CV Axles also eliminate U-joint binding to allow smooth transfer power to the ground. Even if you have big tires and big power there are no worries. Ultimate CV Axles are low maintenance and operate with a smoothness you can feel - whether off road or on the street. And we back it all with a "No Questions Asked" limited lifetime warranty.

Axle set includes right and left CV axle shafts, SST seals and installation tool, installation instructions, synthetic moly grease, and installation hardware.
