Fordyce was awesome. Not for the faint of heart or the weak. Makes the rubicon look like a sissy trail


Went all the way to winch hill 3. Rock zombies were there causing a log jam so we turned back around and came out committee. Got a puncture in my driver rear crappy tire and plugged it at wh1. Plug came out near wh3 and I wheeled about a half mile on it while it was flat. Changed it and wheeled out. Water was real low. Around 50cfm. Commitee crossing is wide and a little deep. Would be really sketchy at higher flow. Didnt get pics really. Was alone till wh1. Then met up with a group and tagged along. One guy had a nice 73. Gmc truck cab on a blazer frame with 42s. Was doved front and rear around 20inches. He let me use some of his gas wich was nice as I wasnt sure how much I needed to get back to camp.




I did take some pics at sunrise hill. Right before the first water crossing

Not really. It only took me about an hour, and was so simple I didnt take pics.


My radiator bolted up to the tj grill.
I cut the grill support bar brackets off the yj grill and welded them on the tj grill.
Bottom bolt worked fine with tj grill in hole on frame.
