JV was a BLAST!!!

Hey gang,

just got home from the day trip JV! left this morning at 5:00, got home at 11:00. What a great time. I will post pics in the morning as well provide details.

Lots of carnage - mostly door damage and such. I got my first real trail damage in 4.5 yrs. My passenger side rear door battled with a rock. Not to bad.

There were some folks that had major issues/carnage, but I will let them post about it.

No one got injured that I know of and almost everyone got to drive their rigs home - unless they trailered it there.

The food was great! Tons of raffle prizes. I won a set of Soft 8's !!! There were 2 sets of seats, a roof rack, 2 hi-lift jacks, e-z deflators, Tom Woods goodys, Crown goodys, pink t-shirts, and Matt's nutz, plus tons of other things - Oh yeah - several items from Napa - u-joints, unit bearings, power steering box, etc... too many to list (I can't remember right now)

I am tired, going to bed, will post more tomorrow.....

Re: JV was a BLAST!!!

Long ass 21 hour day. I suffered some more body damage (the Jeep, not me). Now I have matching doors. Had to replace a radiator hose on the trail. Thanks to Curt for having a spare.

Great to see everybody. Thanks Goatman!

BTW Robert, how much do you want for those rims?

Re: JV was a BLAST!!!

Here a few pics and a link to more.

a huge THANK YOU to Richard and all of the trail leaders, folks that cooked and helped with food and those who helped make this a fantastic event.

Thanks to Andy for leading Claw Hammer and Jes for all of the spotting, great job guys!

Clawhammer was like nothing I have run before. It was continually chaning as rocks moved with each person. Took us about 4 hours I think to do the trail with 12 Jeeps.

Josh conquered Claw with no issues or damage!

Johnny had the upper radiator hose issue and doesn't like straight doors.. Thanks to Curt for having a spare radiator hose.

Speaking of Curt, he loves beating the hell out of the rocks with his body of his MJ....

Hellbilly did a great job for his first time to JV. He got a little hung-up on the first obstacle, but he was trying to follow Andy... LOL Billy received a little body damage and used all of his armor.

MikeyL got a few new scratches. I don't remember everything or everyone's name that was with us.... SORRY.

Any ways, here are some pics and the link:

Do you see anything wrong here?






BTW - here is my new 1-ton steering set-up....

Re: JV was a BLAST!!!

After seeing the picture of the deployed airbag, all you guys wheelin with a 1996 cherokee, just remove the airbag before you go offroad, it's a self contained unit, there are no impact sensors anywhere, just pull it off, and leave it a camp, or in the back seat. If you hit it hard enough with your fist, it will hit back.

Re: JV was a BLAST!!!

well in that case it's a good thing, all i was trying to say is that you really don't have to hit anything with it to make it go off. the crash sensor is all contained in there.

I was doing about 65 so I'm not surprised the bag went off.
