thats how you break stuff chief. i know that automatic makes things easy, but they never said you had to hump the rock to get over it.

No chance of crawling over that one with a/t's and no lockers cheif; and that's what the 1/4" laser cut, tig welded steel skid covering everything under my belly is for. And why don't you go get on mrblaine's case about having an auto?....Talk to me when i'm not wheeling tougher trails on my 32" a/t's than your rubicon on 35's.

Anyways, today I clamped on a turndown to my tailpipe that was cut going straight over the axle so it now shoots the exhaust down instead of straight, thus preventing more melted tubes and a potential fire.

I'll post pictures of the jeep show today too. Didn't take my jeep today due to the previously mentioned melted vacuum tubes, but got to run the course in a club member's competition YJ. Lots of fun!

And why don't you go get on mrblaine's case about having an auto?....Not going to are you?

you need an auto for something like that^^^

unless you have mastered the handthrottle and clutch whil braking how are you going to balance on the edge of that rock?

answer how cuz I wish I knew, I thought my rig was to fast as a stick in a group of autos, doing green trails and one green /blue I tried to just crawl along in first up the trail, this is difficult because you have to plan for all the obstacles before you even begin the first one.

are your tires gonna be there tom. how was the jeep show, im bummed I didn't make it this year!

I know, I just needed a decent come back for another spyder auto attack

And I'm really hoping that my tires come tomorrow, I expect them to. Trying to get the jeep into the shop to fix the vacuum hoses tomorrow morning too. So much to worry about right before a big trip :.

And here are some jeep show pics:

Me




My dad got a chance to take it around the course too, he enjoyed himself










My jeep got an RTI score of 760 while I was there. No idea how well that is

Not if you have some decent gearing. It's all what you prefer really though.

Blaine and convincing don't usually go in the same sentence.

No worries, I don't care. I've got nothing compared to the guys who we're chosen. What's the prize for the winner again?
