chapter run up AF 7-9-2011

thanks to all that came it was a great day.

well after playing dodge the bikers and joggers up to tibble, me and the kids got the jeep unloaded and ready to go. while we were waiting for the others to show there was a goup of all white xj's that showed up. and they hadn't even heard of before. they got a few cards from climbon so now they know

we had 4xj's 1 tj 1 yj and a rzr4 and acquired a toyota somewhere after the rock garden.

although the carnage began before we even hit the rock garden we still couldn't have asked for a better day up there.

damage was i rear D60 shaft, 1 steering box sector shaft, 1 radiator, and a bent tierod. there may have been more but thats all i knew about.

now on to the pics. which 98% of them were taken by my kids, i think i only took 2 or 3 of them

this is the kid that HATES wheelin, this was only the second time in 9yrs she has gone with me.









mike was doing all the trail with 1 dead soldier, that dead weight made him actually have a challenge on the trail

lots of water coming down, there was waterfalls everywhere.

the road was a river most of the trail









more...........

Re: chapter run up AF 7-9-2011


while waiting for cory and kevin to return with the new steering box, a few of us decided to go to tyngs grave........well try!

we got stopped by this

since we couldn't go no farther we decided to start a fire and cook some dogs

the climb out was a wet snowy hill climb back to the road, watching mike do it with 3 wheel drive was interesting, about 1second after this pic was taken he went flying full throttle 3rd gear tire first into a tree, he came do a quick stop.(wish i would have video'd it, it was funny)

kevins rescue crew

at least he had a swimsuit on


after we got kevin fixed, my 13yr old boy wanted to drive up and down the rock garden.

and i can't forget cory's rock which i think was the cause of the hole in the radiator.

Thanks for letting me join in

3wd and wet TOYOs makes for an interesting time lol

I also cracked my frame a bit around the steering box when I hit the tree. I had the clutch stuffed and brakes stabbed and right before I hit I let go of the steering wheel.... but I still hit HARD

Here's some pics and vid.

Oh, nvm, looks like I can't attach.

Here's some vid....

Re: chapter run up AF 7-9-2011

Thanks for all of your help getting it fixed. I guess there is no better way to learn than on a trail surrounded by a bunch of guys that have replaced them before. It was my first time. Yes the water was cold but what choice do you have. At least the new one has a lifetime warranty on it now.
