I have finally laid my Monster to rest. I took it out for one last hurrah. She went out the same way she came in. No regrets and some more excellent video footage. I brought it off the hill with two flat front tires and a very crippled front end. She went onto the trailer under her own power though.
Basically what happened is I ripped the drivers side front mounts out completely. Only thing holding those parts on are part of one torsion mount and the crossmember. Lot's of movement and some carnage to boot. We'll have pics up soon. Mourn the loss of one of the most reliable offroaders to date. 3 hard years on the trail. She will live again though.

To answer to biggest question...yes...she will live again through organ donation. Bigger, maybe. Badder, most definitely. I will miss the car but I will not mourn her. She has brought many things into my life like hours upon hours of offroad enjoyment and and amazement to others. But rest assured that I'll be back with another one very, very soon.
Note; my wife thinks this might be a suspicious death. She thinks I planned the whole thing so that I could build another one.
Imagine that :rollin: :rollin: :rollin: :rollin: :rollin:
See ya' on the trails.

The mortal wound to the hatch just opened up for apparently no reason. I'd bet it had to do with the last time we went out and all the wheelies that pushed it past its limit. Having the trailer in the parking lot makes for big cajones, you know that no matter what, you're gonna get it home.
