Darn rocks pop up here and there out on the sand highways there. Got to watch out for those. So far everybody has been lucky, not to many injuries during the KOH races sofar.

Here is a good reference vid for those unfamiliar with the Jeep

I like this one. Evo 1 is a cool rig but I think Mel is just as talented a driver.


I won't clutter Jay's thread up with anymore vids, sorry Jay.

Yep, are you near the area?

Building on the water in StoneWater. House should be done early April. I will be bringing my 26' Chaparral Sunesta with me.... may be too big for that lake. We'll see.

I lived in the harbor for a couple years and then moved up the road toward 16/73! Cool to know I've got a Jeepforum-er in the area! Will do. :thumbs up:

Communications have arrived!

Rugged Radio dual helmet comm kit- It will be nice not having to yell to my co-driver for once . Next up will be getting a pit radio... bleh, they are not cheap and wasn't in the budget, but probably a pretty necessary item.









I had a little Halloween fun with the jeep . We drove it up over the sidewalk and hung some monster hands out of the tailgate and door and hit the LED flashers. Made for a little adventure for the kids to come get candy.

I cannot get over how clean that thing is. May I ask what spring rates and lengths you're running on the rear? Your Jeep appears to be similar in weight to mine and I'm still trying to dial in my coilovers.
