November 13 Five-Mile Pass

On very short notice a couple of us got together and ran Rattlesnake and the trail leading up to Eagle's Nest. I survived fine, but the Rubicon with the 2" lift suffered a bent steering stabilizer. When we got out of 5-Mile and went shooting in the west desert, he had trouble turning right at a sharp angle which put us onto the stabilizer fail. We removed it, went shooting and on the way back into town he experienced his first case of death wobble. I was following, and it was pretty extreme. Shook the sh(confidence)it out of him. We got him back to town with emergency flashers and going 40 mph. Now that my XJ is working, I plan on one or more trips in November; I'll try to post them a few days ahead. Happy wheeling.

Update: He also bent his drag link. LHM Jeep replaced it with a Teraflex.
