A decent set of boomerang shackles will ensure you can get it off without losing a finger.

What's up, neighbor!
I still have my 1984 Boss XL that I earned new racing as a teen. I kept it thinking if I ever had a son he would ride it. I did in fact have a son and got him racing from 5 to 8 years old then lost interest and grew right past my bike.
So there she sits...my pride and joy...all alone in the attic...waiting for a grandson...

I walked to my back yard and thought i saw a bird on my jeep and this is what found. This is what the sun did to my 10 year old tire

An army buddy had it happen with his Bronco. It blew the tailgate glass and side glass right out.

Damm !!! Sounds like a mirror , my son 22 now raced about a year but never got into it . When he was a teen he liked riding my old school BMX bikes , but I didn't want him to tear them up . I rode a BOSS most of my BMX career . Actually Rode with Dean Luchea ( owners Son) . WE are close enough to the same age , we probably Raced each other . I raced Stockton BMX almost every friday night . Also used to Do the Atwater , Chowchilla , Merced triple header when chasing points . I know this is WDYDTY YJ section , but get me gooin on BMX I tend to run on

Back to Tek , I run Booms front & rear . Even so I managed to Flip a front shackle Crawling the B**c* trail at Hollister . Bent my Spring the same way . I thought the cross bolt would stop it from inverting but it didn't . I'm going to add a bump stop to keep it from happening again . I agree a set of military wraps would help too . Making me think twice about not pulling the set I saw in the wreaking yard by work .

Wheeled it a couple days ago in Port Angeles with my TJ buddy. Would have posted it then but the photo evidence wasn't linking correctly and I've been on a boat for a couple days to Alaska.





The photos don't show it really but this switchback trail was extremely steep and had many drop offs.



My buddy's TJ at the top of that hilltop.


Had a blast and didn't break anything. The first part of that trial was pretty hair raising. I almost took the wife but she has a definite fear of heights and cliffs and there was more than plenty here.

I miss the public access power line trails. East coast sucks.

A lot of those trails are easements for just the power companies and their subsidiaries. You should always ask local landowners and authorities about the legality of wheeling on any land that doesn't belong to you.

correct. Wa state has a very easy way to tell you yes or no at the trail heads/roads. Signs with a green dot=open to all. Yellow means need a permit ( for cutting fishing hunting salvaging etc). Red means no. Easy peasy.

It was an approved trail. My buddy had been out there a few times. I'm kinda by the book when it comes that stuff. A law abiding citizen.

It was a blanket statement. Nothing personal.
