Met up with my buddy Chris and some of his friends from Inland Jeep Freeks for some Hammer wheeling.
Had a hooting good time, bit of trail fixing a few stucks, winching and a lot of wheelin made for a great day.
We ran Wrecking ball, Bender alley, up Jack North, bit of Sledgehammer, then up upper Sledgehammer, where we experienced a few epic stucks. After that onto Chocolate thunder, my lil Jeep sustained a Chocolate kiss there. I hate the sound of screeching metal, sounds like you tear the whole side open. Was a creative line and it worked, total damage of it was a bunch of scrapes on the side and a small tear in the seat. I love crawling through obstacles sideways. Epic fix of the day happened on Bender alley. One of the guys blew the snapring out of the steering box that hold the sector shaft seals in place. After some thinking and scouring for tools we got the genright pitman arm off (regular pitman arm puller doesn't work carry their puller if you have one of those) After an hour of screwing around we determined that the spiral ring just was not going back in it's groove, so we made a spacer out of coiled bailing wire, a shoe lace and a ziptie, stuffed this around the sector shaft, pitman arm held it in place nicely. Finished the trail with no leaks, so he finished the rest of the day with us, pretty cool.

One of these days at the end of the day, the tire will come off the back, the toolbag out and anything else that isn't bolted down, then a helmet on the nugget and I'll go to town.
Super extendo rear steer buggy couldn't crawl it and that thing is very capable. It takes commitment and a lot of throttle as well as the blessing ot the one above. Especially the first go around

Did my crawl around this morning, rear axle is officially a 13 bolt, bolt head of # 14 is completely worn off.
Tightened one transmission mount bolt, had been loose for awhile now. Other than a whole new slew of beauty mark underneath my lil gurl is ready again for another round of trail abuse

Putting this here so I can have some fun with it later

Winning circle , just realized that every one of these Jeeps has won TJ of the month. Not going to happen often that you got 4 of them wheelin together. Or get them together in the same pi in the wild

Not yet, I didn't do so well on taxes this year. If it doesn't sell in 2 months or so i probably will.

There are a few things it needs in my opinion but it crawls good. Driving with the air shocks was a shocking thing. lol I didn't like the sensation in the front when you turn on pavement. The atlas was great just a little hard to shift.

Air shocks can do some funny stuff when turning, but are very hard to beat when crawling. Atlas and an automatic takes a bit of getting used too. Looks like a nice rig

Yeah it usally out crawls all the other rigs on 42s but i think it has a lot to do with tire selection. He went with a big hp buggy, i guess he is wanting an adrenaline rush now?
