I wish my desk still looked that clean. At least I have a huge 10x12 window in my cube.

Been awhile since I posted up here. Been DD the jeep every other week or so. I just hit the 5,000 mile mark already in 3 months of driving it.

Other then a few loose nuts and bolts its been driving great. Cruises 70 down the road with one hand on the wheel.

Got some new yukon lockouts on the front, and super winch finally got me a new winch after fighting with them for 2 months on the topic. I am tempted to sell this one. Make me an offer on a Talon 12.5S

How about this for an update!

Thought the roll cage could use a testing. LOL
Rolled backwards and then ended up on my side.
Started right back up no problem!!













Some body damage on the passenger rear. And the front hoop is messed up.
Out with the old and in with the new. Going to cage up the engine like I wanted to but just never had time to do it.

I'm glad I saw the roll, but I really wish I would have been there to photograph it.....but I got tired of waiting, you were taking forever...lol. Jeffery held up well though, it really took a hard fall on it's lid, then rolled over on it's side.

I still laugh when I think about "your arms flailing about".....I was thinking, really Kevin, hold on....but then I realized it was the passenger seat shoulder harnesses that I saw...lol.

I have a feeling this won't be the last time Jeffery is on it's head....so re-build it better, stronger, faster.....(oh wait, that's the six million dollar man).

Looks relatively flat there, what the hell did you roll on?

I was over at MI all weekend, should have came over for some beers.

Its back in the quarry. Its on the right side. If you are looking at the pond its the hill right on the left.

I rolled over backwards, and then landed on my side.

It was a pretty good drop onto your lid too, you were several feet up that rock face...you kind of did a pirouette on the driver rear tire then fell on your lid, then rolled onto your side. I'd say you built that cage right, as it took one hell of a hit and looked no worse for the wear.

Waiting to roll....



This is the rock face he fell off of, a bit left of where Brad is in this picture, and maybe a few feet lower.

Got some big plans for Jeffery. All of which have to be done by the end of the month.

To name a few.
- Engine cage
- Engine skid
- New front coilover hoops
- custom half doors
