This is the most technical and hardcore wheeling I've ever seen!

So did you have a lawnmower chained to the back or something?

Would have been cooler if you busted through the white picket fence at the beginning.... ya know, just for effect... I stopped watching after that, just couldn't handle the disappointment.

Come on guys, the OP only has 3 posts. Maybe it's his first Jeep and first time "off road."

Oh, and OP, you may want to be careful field hopping in the fall. I had a buddy who did that, stopped to take a look at a Red Tailed Hawk in flight, and his catalytic converter caught the grass on fire. 30 seconds later his ZJ was engulfed in flames.

Yep, seen this a couple times myself. Once it was a cop car. They were doing training and they parked along a road. One of them was a k9 car. They left it idle to keep the ac on for the dog. Luckily the wild blew the fire away from the car and everybody was okay.

haha my bad wrong forum. Nice to know Jeep guys are friendly about simple mistakes.

I guess the only thing that gets techincal is after this, grass ended up making my pinion seal leak pretty bad. When I tried to fix it, my TJ ended up rolling over my leg, thats another story of a whole different kind of stupid.

I was mainly just testing out different ways to film with the gopro, using the suction cup mount.

You just need the "Speed Racer" option of double horizontal 48" circular saw blades that extend from the front of your jeep and you'll be all set for cutting hay.

Don't laugh. My buddys and I have joked about mounting chain saws vertically on the front fenders of our jeeps to cut overgrown trails back to "jeep width".
