Thumbs up Southern Region Wink's Saloon 4X4 Show

Event has been moved to Winks Saloon in Brownsville Texas because of the

unfortunate news. See LINK and POST 44 for details.







TX TTORA is touring the state to spread awareness of one of the most rewarding 4X4 events that will ever happen in the State of Texas, "Wheelers for the Wounded". Wheelers for the Wounded (WFTW) is an organization with the mission of providing a weekend of off-roading and camping to our country's wounded military members all over the United States. This will provide them with much deserved fun and excitement as they traverse the most extreme terrain our great country has to offer in a variety of the best off-road capable vehicles ever built.
We are proud to present your very own 4X4 Show-N-Shine. All judging will be on appearance, functionality, and creativity.

The Show-N-Shine:

STOCK- Will be limited to street legal 4x4 rigs with no aftermarket 4X4 parts & lifts over 2 inches and the tires cannot be more than 2 inches over stock size. Aftermarket bolt-on products such as bumpers, racks, sliders, and winches will be allowed in this class. Appearance is what you are shooting for here. We don't care for tags.

SEMI-MODIFIED- Will be limited to street legal 4x4's with lifts from 2 inches and tire sizes up to 35 inches. Lockers and gear swaps allowed but no axle or engine swaps. All bolt on aftermarket parts allowed as well. Appearance & functionality is what you are shooting for here. We don't care for tags.

MODIFIED- Will be limited to street legal 4x4 rigs with tires larger than 35 inches. This will also be for vehicles that have had axle swaps, engine swaps, or roll cages. Appearance, functionality, & creativity is what you are shooting for here. We don't care for tags.

STRICTLY TRAIL- This is for hardcore 4x4 rigs that are for trail use only (TRAILERED AROUND). Rig is not required to be street legal. Functionality, & creativity is what you are shooting for here. We don't care for tags.

SHOW- Anything goes here. Vehicles in this class do not see the trail often. Appearance & the wow factor is what you are shooting for here. We don't care for tags.

Winners will be awarded trophies on a 1st - 3rd place basis.

Thumbs up Update:

THX Cliff, sorry to here you won't be able to make it.

While I am down there, my wife an I will be going to MTY Mexico to see her folks. that means I have a chance to escape to the mountains.

I might just plan to get out there Saturday evening for night wheeling, camp in the forest and wheel some more Sunday. I can send you pictures of what to expect down there if your interested; you won't regret it. LMK

Everybody welcome, if you can get Monday off to drive back that would be awesome.

Jose, send me some info on what all you had to go through to get the OK with the locations that are set up so far. What events are you having and what liability was discussed?

Oh, smack! This event is attracting people all the way from MTY Mexico and border towns. It is turning out to be a good event.

I would post the link but it wouldn't do you any good.

Understood. I hope Yames is still on board b/c we are expecting a diverse croud down in Brownsville. We are about a week away so there is still some time to sign up.

We are going in a recruiting ramp page.

Yames, when are you taking off and plan to come back? How much can your truck carry?
