“My name is Beth, I am 27 years old and from a small town in the mountains of West Virginia. I live with my boyfriend and 3 kids. I have a house cleaning business called Cleaner Image (check it out, http://cleanerimagehousekeeping.com/Home_Page.html). I am in school to get my associates degree in Foundations of Business.. with the intentions of getting my MBA. When I am not busy working my family and I enjoy anything outdoors. Hiking, camping, a day on the river, and most importantly off roading. My kids haven’t fell in love with it yet, but I am sure they will catch the bug soon enough ;)”
What type of Jeep do you run?
I have a 95 XJ 4.5″ Rough Country Lift and 32’s.. and it’s PINK!!!
Favorite spot to off road?
The Good Evening Ranch in Canvas West Virginia and Swiss which is also in the southern part of the state.
Favorite off roading quote?
JEEP= Just Empty Every Pocket. If I am not wanting to spend money on an upgrade then I am breaking something that needs fixed.
If you could have any modifications done, what would they be?
Haha.. there are to many to list, but if I could have ANY I would get a 6″ Rough Country lift and long arms.. and then of course from there I would need numerous upgrades.
What was your best/worse modification if any?
The best was the simplest.. disconnecting the swaybar!!!
How old were you when you first started off roading?
I always loved lifted Jeeps, but never thought about their off road capabilities until I was 24 or 25.. I had no idea what I was missing!
Why you love Jeep Off Roading?
I prefer to be a driver instead of a passenger, but between me and my boyfriend we have 3 lifted Jeeps (YJ and 2 XJ’s) so if one is broken we have a few spares 😉 It gives me a sense of control and I become fearless. There is nothing like being inches away from a drop and thinking OMG can I make it!!!
Any off roading story or incident you would like to share.
As you can see from the picture I posted my Jeep enjoys being on 3 wheels.. I was waiting to get quick disconnects and had went wheeling many times before my boyfriend finally just disconnected and left it alone. I have quite a few pictures like that and half the time I had no idea I was only driving on 3 wheels.
