Got high centered this weekend. My 35"s in the back were not even close to touching the bottom of the hole. And the trees in front of me were to far away and too small to winch off of. Im glad I have friends with Jeeps because I went wheeling alone. But my friend knew exactly where I was stuck, because he got stuck there too.

Oh yeah, I pulled my rear inner fenders out too.

Next weekend, I am going camping at Sicily Island/ Catahoula Recreational Park in North Louisiana.

sucks about the thief, but at least they didn't get anything. I've had two thieves get in my Jeep this year, one ripped the stock, locked glove box off and stole a rain jacket(not in the glove box), the other was in a parking garage at my school, parked in front of a camera with a police station at the bottom of the garage...they took my parking pass and then used it to park near me the next week, needless to say they were caught.

I don't leave my ins/registration in the Jeep when I park, unless I'm just running into the store, but I have my doors off pretty much year round.

Sucks... But I am glad you caught the one who stole from you!

Yeah, he was an idiot, he was caught on camera & then caught using it.

I guess its going to happen every now & then with a jeep.

BTW, I like the look of the bikini setup on your LJ

Thanks. It is actually quieter than my old top by 10-20 dbs depending on safari or bikini at 65mph.

Just a little more wheeling and over night camping. Place called catahola rec park. We were the only ones in the whole park, besides the owner who showed us some new trails.

Had to change rear seals in the rear axle early last week before the Jamboree. I did not have time so I took it to a good local shop. They found bad wear from a seal on the axle shafts. So I had them put a yukon in one side. Ill do the other one soon.

Cajun JJ went well. Drove great there and back. Did the hard trail on day one and kept up with all the rest and the medium trail on day 2 and had a blast. A little sheet metal damage and a couple of broken mirror brackets. Very fun wheeling with people from all over, pennsylvania, florida, alabama, mississippi, kansas...

Mostly steep, short, tight hill climbs on day one and then we went to play in the creek bed. Day two was a lot of the same steep, short, tight hill climbs with a lot more mud and normal trail riding. Here is a few of the pictures I have.... Hopefully getting more of me later...

drivers meeting/departure





good down hill decent before lunch on day one



The shorter wheel bases where tipping forward on this one. And to give some perspective, I am standing about 10 feet higher than the actually ground.



first stuck in the creek bed



group on day one



one of my favorites..... trailered only



mirror damage on day two



and where it happened



mud climb on day two



Hopefully Ill get some more from other participants of me later...

Very fun and I will be going to another one.

I thought your favorite was the red TJ, stock on 31's?

At least my camera was working.

Thanks. I have been meaning to address a few issues myself, but it is hard to do when there is so much wheeling to do.

Thanks for the comments on the two. I miss the chief, but it was way to big, but very fun to drive at 55.

Went to mudfest in central Louisiana this weekend. Only one picture, way to much mud to have fun in plus they had a very bad storm the night before which made it hard to drive around on the "roads". Still fun to go and watch others destroy their equipment.
