Nice rig! I was wondering though if that guy still sells those metal mag lite clips. I did a search and could find him or the product. Those metal ones look like they could take a beating compared to those plastic ones.

ksmith hooked me up the email of the guy who sells them. I emailed the guy, he responded wanting to know how many I wanted, I replied back and never got an email in return. I've tried multiple times too, so I dont know .

Anza-Borrego - The Squeeze

YJs/TJs fit with no problem:



a JK is a tight fit, but can do it without scratches:



but a WJ is fat and round down low where it counts (sound like a rap lyric, i know):










The Carnage from The Squeeze:





right after i got out, i went around to look at the damage and everyone heard me yell "holy sh#t!" because the whole door panel was caved in, then i pulled on the handle and it all popped right back out except for the dents you see in the first carnage pic. i might try and take the interior panel off and the handle and see if there is anyway to bang the dents out even better. after thinking the entire door was caved in and having it pop back out, everything else seemed not-so-bad now, i just need a lot of that expensive mopar touch up spray!

after my carnage, the group decided to stack a fair amount of rocks.

Cory (merkur92) came over from San Diego to Join us just for Saturday. here he is after the rock stacking.


thanks to those few inches of rocks on the passenger side, his mirror was his only carnage:


one of our crazier group members took a different line:

Heart Attack Hill!

the pucker factor:


i was very nervous after watching others go down... however, my spotter put me in a perfect line, and as i inched down extremely slowly the suspension flexed well... ended up not being a big deal;


A few more shots from Anza-Borrego, the full album is here: http://picasaweb.google.com/kristoff...26AnzaBorrego#

Parked at the end of the road for The Slot:

Nice pics

Funny, there is a trail here in Colorado that has two obstacles nearly identical. Heart Attack Hill and the Squeeze:



Looks like you have some fun terrain out there as well

my staun deflators are set to 18, and i run that if i'm going to be back and forth on to pavement between trails... but if i'm doing anything that really needs traction, i go down to 14 or so... that's pretty low for 17" rims.

not sure which i was running in that picture.
