though I did sustain some damage this morning.... and I have to ratchet strap my door shut :grin:

I guess I had some front fender damage as well due to stuffing the tire... need to trim the fronts about another 1.5"

let me guess on the side damage to back near door. Tree 1, Brat 1?

 

Good fun it looked like. Was it very muddy, or did they not get the rain out west like we had here.

thanks Mick whats the story on the black jeep ?

 

had a brake line problem Friday night, and so this was Saturaday morning,and was running with just rear brakes, and compression braking... as I understand it: was coming down a twisty, and couldn't get the 4 spd shifted down. went into the gully off the trail, and clipped a tree with the tire, busting the knuckle, tie rod, and link, and then rolling the axle under the jeep. he probably has some other stuff busted as well. it all happened really fast. luckily it didn't roll....

Yeah, I toook a tight loop up a hill climb, and got a little too close the the tree, and I slid down the side hill as I went past the tree at the top of the loop.

 

it was really dry/dusty. there were 2 mud holes, but they were on the "drying side" and looked pretty nasty, but we didn't go in them.

There was a little bit o rain friday night when e weere out wheeling, but it was a light sprinkle that didn't last very long.

 

It was an awesome weekend. beautiful weather.....

Thats great, Most of any Jeep owners I see around here are just dicks (Like its the best vehicle in the world and is supirior over anything else)

 

I like seeing all type of vehicles wheeling and trying their best :)

I find they are cool here too. :)

I mainly run with the Jeep guys.

Only found one that had the ego and once I climbed a hill that a buddy of his blew a transfercase on (in a Jeep) that day he had way more respect and cheered me on later in the day. :grin:

 

 

Looks like the Brat had a good time.

 

That is just one bada** Brat. :slobber:
