Nooo!!

When you went to pass I thought "too narrow!". Not sure when would have been a better place to pass though. Lots of mud on that course, lots of carnage too.

How did the test and tune go? For 9 minutes, how were the rear c/o's?

I didnt really get to test and tune. We werent allowed to run the course at speed because it was still open to the public. I did acouple of quick burst when no one was around and she felt good. Crawling around was really bumpy but taken at speed wasnt too bad.
Hind sight is 20/20 and I should have known better. If you can hear at the end of the video the guy i was trying to pass said that he came back over into me. I still should have waited for a better place. I was faster than him.

All in all the rears did well. I think the springs are really close.

Jeep is fubar'ed
Here is some pics
this one shows the front bumper with both stands at their highest setting. the frame is bent and twisted


This is the rear shocks. Both the shafts and bodies are bent, the one on the right is stuck and wont extend any farther than it is now.


The cage is way out of wack along with the tub



The rear axle is bent at the caliper bracket.The rim that was on the rear left was bent really bad around the bolt hole area

Wow.....

In putting myself in your shoes, I'm not sure what I would do. How is your motor? Could you pick up a high mileage YJ, link it, c/o's, swap motors, good axle, and put in a comp cage?


After typing it, I still think it would be hard. I would probably buy a pre-built unlimited class and build on it.

Man, glad you are ok.

Woah. So sorry to hear man. First off, I'm glad you're okay. I cringed watching the video as I saw you accelerate up the inside line- (knowing the video was almost over and that was the make or break point for the roll). She's an amazing rig and I'm sure you'll figure something out for the future with a rebuild of some sort or another project.

Keep us posted.

Probably going to look for a tj or lj frame and tub and swap everything over.
The drive train seems to be ok so far. I drove it off the trailer and into the garage. It didnt make any strange noises or anything from the motor or tranny. Well other than the noises coming from the rear axle and shocks as they rubbed and popped.
The sad thing is that the jeep only had 16,800 mile on it. It was just getting broke in.

Oh well, looks like I will be co-dawg'n for john in the A class now.

That makes me sick. If that were my Jeep I'd probably be in bed, wrapped up in my blanky, crying.
