It did some cool stuff earlier...









Then it did this...





Luckily my friend and I are ok, and the Jeep will only need 2 PS doors, 2 front seatbelts(we had to cut them to get out), and some work to straighten the front fender. All in all it could have been a lot worse, and before I flopped it I was really happy with how well it did. I forgot how much of a difference the front locker makes. I left it at a friends house in western MA, and I'll bring it home after wheeling next weekend, then get going on the repairs.

You know it guy!

Wanna do stuff next Wednesday night? I want to get the doors swapped if I have them, or if not then start work on a back bumper.

Yeh sure.

Is your face going to recover from that roll? It looks pretty mangled.

I'm headed to the JY with Ken Stein himself today to get some PS doors. I'd wait, but the rear door is ****ED and doesn't seal at the top, so I don't want a Jeep full of water. Thanks though John!

It's on some private property UJ has, it's a pretty cool area. I don't have any pictures of the damage, I'll get some when I bring it home.

Went wheeling, broke ****, same old story at this point. Pictures.





Apparently even chromos don't like 2nd gear rev-limiter landings after you launch the front end. The 760 was fine, but the shafts shredded, I'm a little disappointed with that.

I was hoping the 760's would be the weak link, but it came out in one piece. Hell, I would have been happy if a Warn went, at least those are warrantied...
