The snow made no difference getting there - on the trails was a different story. Very sloppy. Very slippery. Didn't get many pics this time but snapped a few with the camera phone.

First thing headed to the registration tent looking back at the lot:



Hit the trails:




At times a winch was just part of the plan:



Poser shots:




This morning with the aftermath:

Yeah - next time we'll hafta wheel together. We decided to forego the raffle and hit the trails yesterday. Had the park to our selves during that stretch.
We hit Rust Bucket Alley and all the blues just north of the base camp then played all around the park and ended with a run up through a great creek bed trail - very flexxy - just to the south of Takanoah's Hill Area. We were headed out the last time we crossed paths. Second half of the day was really sloppy.

BTW - your XJ is lookin good!

I really appreciate it, its trying to keep up with yours. Two locals (Independence, actually) didn't make it and asked if I would watch for their combined total of 40 raffle tickets. The whole time Im thinking, "I bet theres not one person on the trails." After an hour of standing and not winning anything, I sat in the massive traffic jam entering the trail for a half hour. Next time Il ask them to read me the #'s via cb while I wait at the trail head. Anyhow let me know if you decide to make another event, it would be cool to get some shots of the Jeeps together. Drive safe out there.

Haven't posted anything in this build for a while but yesterday I secured a set of TnT stiffeners that I'll be picking up coming Monday.

Cannot wait to burn these in. :-)

Planning to wheel this weekend but doubt I'll have a chance to get these installed by then.

Took the blue Jeep out on the trails this weekend.

Started off the morning with some carnage:



Hit a slick spot at the top of a climb and ended up wedged on a tree. Not sure just yet what I'm gonna do with the liftgate window but I'm not likely gonna put glass back in it.

Spent a majority of the rest of the day riding shotgun, spotting, and taking pics while my brother got some drive-time:
