Read the contract carefully however as some contracts state not allowed for off road useage...

Yes, but off roading is not allowed in the park.
...and some insurance companies consider dirt roads the same as off-road. Always read the fine print and ask, if in doubt.
Exactly Richard. And the last one I saw said no off paved road use.

We rented a Jeep last week from the garage in Terlingua.  It was a 4WD Liberty with about 61,000 miles.  I think it cost us about $125 for the day.  Definitely would do that again! 

We should have some pictures to post later.

Just found that my old bartender here in Austin, Craig, somehow secured a job as a guide at Far Flung.

He's a great guy, really smart, and I can imagine that he's picked up on things very quickly.
