So Ive finally taken the time to post a few of my most recent trips just to get the hell out of the Mall Rated group. I would assume I would be Offroad Rated or Guide by the scale, unfortunately I dont think any of the photos show good enough proof for Extreme Offroader. I will fix this next year.

John, awesome trip threads, thanks so much for sharing! I bumped you up to offroad guide.

As a suggestion - you might want to add a link to your build thread in your signature for other people to easily find it.

Hi, TrailX
Back in November, I requested an upgrade to "Trail Ready", and provided the trip reports, so you upgraded my profile. Now I've got my build thread underway, but it still had to be started in "Mall Rated", so I guess I now need you to move it to the "Trail Ready" category for me. Much appreciated.
Brad.
