Rolled over 149k miles today. Also tried to bleed the brakes to flush the old fluid out and snapped the bleeder on the RF caliper (the LF opened up no problem). New caliper and all is happy. The rear bleeders are pretty rusty and gross looking, so I'm not even gonna bother trying, the calipers are just getting replaced. I've got the new ones, just gotta put them on tomorrow after I get back from class.

I put it away today. I think I'll keep it in there. I left the spot open for my wife since we bought the house and she hasn't used it. It's mine now. Lol. My car has been lonely in there anyway. If you look close, you can see my wife and daughter comin out of the house into the garage next to my Jeep. My Gary Fisher is hiding next to my car.

I had a Gary Fisher back in the day. Back when I still thought cross country was cool. Then I started racing down hill and the cc bike got sold quick. I miss it sometimes, but then a quick ski lift trip to the top and I forget all about it.

BOT drive it halfway around the block to look at my neighbors ZJ that I'm seriously considering purchasing.

My GF is a dual sport. I do mostly road riding with it. I plan on getting a second set of wheels and some 29er tires to take it on trails more often.

Got stuck in mud. For 4 hours. 3 trucks to get me out. Mud up to my door handles...

Getting stuck:

Had the pass side in a rout and trued driving out of it that didnt work. So just kept driving foward and ended up sinking the whole pass side in mud...

Driver side was a lil wet but not bad. Driving though the passenger side didnt look bad but was.

Getting unstuck:
So calles my brother hes got an 08 Ram 1500 with new ATs moving me but not enough to get out. Called.his friend another 08 Ram 1500 new ATs still not moving. At this point was pretty sure itd be staying here a while. But called my other friend and told him the situation (his dad owns a huge shop that does and has everything) he brings out his dads f550. He pulls almost directly side ways and my brother and his friend back and sideways. After 20 mins of buding that way i finaly got out!!!!

A very adventorus day when she had mud on every square inch to nice and clean.

All on private land or else id have a big ticket if i was found!!!!

it's easier than you think... if you don't have a passenger (or someone outside of the vehicle) spotting on that side it may look good from the driver's seat but then you don't notice that spot that will make a wheel go where you don't want it

had something slightly similar happen once where my pass front wheel dropped into a washout that i didn't see... trying to avoid a ditch on one side of the trail and ended up in another... luckily i was able to get out of that predicament by giving it hell in 4lo

You raced downhill??? I thought I was the only one who did that! What rig were you thrashing? I had a Kona Deluxe Operator with full Fox Shox and SRAM shifters because the Shimano Saint shifters were s***. Bought it for 3k, and when I sold it I got $3500 because of the upgrades. Then I bought a Jeep
