Took the family on a trail ride with a local Jeep club. Challenging trail and a great time. Here are some shots

Well it was bound to happen sooner or later! Leaning on a rock and against a tree but a flop none the less!

How bad of a flop was it? How much damage?

Not bad, happened at the end of a timed obstacle course. Too much speed going through some rocks. Only damage is a small tear in the top and a dented tube fender...should have used heavier tube. But for having the whole weight of the jeep on it the tube held up good

That's one way to see how well you made the fenders.

Finally got the video of my near flop experience! The terrain in the obstacle course isn't really difficult, lots of tight turns. More for fun than anything else. I did it in like 4:52 fastest was 4:46...lots of people in the 7+ and a couple dnf!

Haha, that's great.

...a side note, I usually hate music in wheeling vids, but like The Who!

Had the local driveshaft shop build new a couple new driveshafts from some xj front I had in the ship. The jeep is so smooth now, the front shaft was bent very badly before and drive me nuts!

Hoping to get a bunch of work done on it this year!
