Now set with 4.56 gears, front and rear locker, 4 inch spring lift, 2 inch body lift, 4:1 transfer case, NV-4500 transmission, and several other after market modifications, the Lil’ Heep was set to hit the trails.

RECREATION GROUPS RESPOND TO THREATS TO MOTORIZED RECREATION IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA FORESTS LAWSUIT

The Recreation Groups filed a motion to intervene on May 15th in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California (Case No. C 08-1185-MHP). The groups petitioning the court include the California Association of Four Wheel Drive Clubs, American Motorcyclist Association District 36, California Enduro Riders Association, and the BlueRibbon Coalition,.

"Once again, the motorized recreation community have little choice but to respond to attempts to close treasured access to historical roads in these 'roadless' areas," said Don Spuhler, Cal4 President. "Apparently high levels of State leadership are dissatisfied by the prospect that these routes continue in use despite the Clinton Roadless Rule and unprecedented Forest Service travel management efforts. We believe it essential to defend this access and proper understanding of the forest planning process," Spuhler concluded.

The Motion to Intervene is presently scheduled to be heard on June 30, 2008.
