Thank You for the votes Jeepers! At least my 5.9 obtained the title I think It deserves. I wish everyone could drive this thing as see just how capable it is. My Jeep has been wheeled so hard this year its hard to say how long this thing will stand for it. In fact The motor is the only factory drive train component left in it, And thanks in part to my snorkel and regular oil changes It should out last the 3rd transmission the Jeep has received. Oh yea, In honor of GCOTM, I sunk it again On Saturday and gave the hook another good work out. I will try to procure the Pics of said stuck. Thanks again guys! Hope to meet many more of you on the trail someday.

Well gents, Here is the Pic from 5-5-12. It does not look bad from this angle or picture, but I can probably show you pics of a J/K on 40's stuck in the same hole. We can make it across in one direction but not back up that little Hill at the end. The mud was so slick and greasy I had to pull line and winch out. Notice My wireless winch remote in my hand. I love that thing. I was sucked in pretty good because the Rubicon I hooked up to was just sliding towards me across hard ground instead of me towards it. That is with me in drive all 4's locked and spinning too!


Well, we made some nasty trail but decided we better build an interesting by Pass to get across said area if it gets too rough. I can tell you that I did test It out. I had a problem when I went to back up and kicked a log up due to the fact the logs were not secured down yet . So In actuality I got stuck twice that day.


Please Keep in mind this is all Private property and the Owner is in charge of this trail build. To back me up there are several JF members who will support me when I tell you this is all legal wheeling.

Thanks James. and you as well brother,^^^ And thank you for your service Irish Assassin. I just watch a hunting video of you I believe, Nice Buck. I too spend a lot of time behind the limbs of my Mathews. Speaking of service Members. I just saw a picture Of my oldest son In uniform holding his first M4 which he will be carrying over to Afghanistan . So I am all about supporting our Troops. saying as how I no longer have the watch, Unless anything happens to my boy over there that is, Then I will be shipping my ZJ over to explore some camel trails in the deserts with this mounted threw the moon roof. I just remember putting the antlers of the buck I shot this year with the bow , over my KC's. I was at my gun club at by the way.

Congrats, man. It's been a long time coming. I missed the vote again this month, but I'm glad to see you won. Your Jeep is an inspiration.
