Oh crap! That's gonna leave a mark...my first trail damage.

I just got the lift/wheels/tires on this past week so I was really excited! I went to go play Airsoft today at the local field and before the game began I thought it would be a great idea to test out the Jeep with the new lift and wheel/tire combo. Thing was awesome....until I hit a tree. First trail damage photos. It seemed very capable. The "hill" is a bit steeper than it looks. I was amazed I didn't bottom my skid plate. Pissed about the trail damage, but i'll get over it. After I came down the backside of that hill I turned left to get out to the parking lot area and there was a white Birch tree I didn't see about 8" around. Hit my new (not even wired yet) KC light, and the windshield frame. I thought I cracked the hard top at first. Hope the windshield doesn't leak. I put a bead of silicone inbetween the windshield frame and the rubber windshield cover so I think it will be ok.

hehe, that reminds me of a friend I was wheeling with years ago, he was in this little truck and took the wrong angle up an incline and had to back down, wasn't watching his backup and kissed a tree coming down. He yells out, who put that *blasted* tree there?!? We all pretty much died laughing, good times.
