Ha ha ha. As far as spam goes, I think that's my favorite.
EDIT: This and the next post are in response to trolling (which has since been removed) involving racism/vulgarity/prius-phallic comment and ending in "Get off my duck", which I can only assume is a typo, but hilarious none-the-less.
I saw you give the rock garden a shot at Go Topless Day, that was pretty sweet! Sucks to hear about the vandalism though, I hope the police are able to catch the guy. If I were you I would start considering a proximity sensor alarm for your TJ, might scare them away. Do you think it was the same person each time?
Hey! That's so funny that you recognized the TJ from there. Yeah, my "shot" at the rock garden was pretty pathetic. I wasn't very happy with the amount of noise my undercarriage produced while traversing the rocks. My only (weak) defense is that we don't wheel rocks as a club, so my experience with them is next to none. I also was probably in the wrong gear (4-lo, 2nd gear) which is why I went over them so quickly, and bounced around so much. But I'm just a dumb*** for not asking questions first (so as to not sound like a dumb***... )
I'm going to be installing a kill switch in the TJ soon. I don't keep anything valuable in it so it's not a huge deal that they went through it. The weirdest/most discomforting part of it all is that the TJ was the THIRD car in the driveway.. meaning they walked by my Audi, by the VW, and THEN got to the Jeep.

No worries man. I just wanted to make sure we didn't leave anyone behind

Sounds like an awesome idea. Unfortunately I'm not that steady with a tattoo gun (although he wasn't that steady with a paint can, so maybe it's a fair trade?) but I'll be sure to post some non-descript details of what exactly it is that I'll do in return for his actions.
By the way, I also found out that the TJ was one of 5 cars in my neighborhood that was broken into last night. The people next door had $1,500 in golf clubs stolen... guys up the street had GPS and radar detectors stolen from both of their cars, and the other people were on the other side of the neighborhood. Unfortunately, this makes me feel a little better that I'm not the specific target of these attacks (at least not this one).
Thats a damn shame about your rides getting vandalized. I would bet its kids from the surrounding area. I know how pissed off this crap makes us all but I have a humorous little story about theft.
Years ago I had a Samurai that had a crap soft top on it. Freezer tape on the windows to seal little cuts, and ragged on the edges and just generally in bad shape. Ordered a new top from JC Whitneys, got it, had it warming up in the house in preparation for a saturday morning install. Got up and went outside to start, and my top is gone. Yes, the crappy top, and for a freak'n Samurai of all things. I mean, really? Only other thing missing was a cassette tape or two. Hey, I said it was years ago. hehehe I just couldn't help thinking that if they had just waited one more day, they could have got a better top. So anyway, I was totally pissed off and reactive rather than thinkking clearly. I went out that day an bought an alarm system with a sonic motion detector. What the heck was I thinking? For a Samurai? Didnt even have 4wd.

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.
Yesterday was great. Left here around 8 AM, wheeled from 10a-6:30p, then drove home after getting gas and putting air back in the tires. I had a great time, and really enjoyed the more difficult ledges/rocks that we were presented with. It was the first time I've really had the chance to ask the Jeep to do some real work and it did not hesitate. I honestly just walked up and over everything, even being the only person on the run with BFG A/Ts. The Detroit up front helped a ton with the ledges. TONS of mud - a lot more than I really like, but it will be washed off soon anyways and restored to a clean paint job. Even got to use the winch to get donnyb out of some seriously quicksand-like mud.
Mud was so bad that I could not see the light from my headlights even in the pitch black on the drive home. Had to use the windshield lights as they were the only ones not covered in dry mud.
Videos should be coming soon from one of the other Jeep's passengers.
