Did some wheelin at gulches yesterday and today. It was pretty slick in spots yesterday, so not ideal conditions but was still a good time. Then when I woke up this morning it was pouring down rain on my tent. Got out and standing water everywhere. So needless to say it was muddy... Really muddy. Had a really good time though.

Glad to say the axles are holding up to all the abuse I've been putting them through recently. I have been mashin it in second gear alot to make it up some big stuff.

Here is a video of the left side of TNT yesterday afternoon. There should be a couple more videos to come and a few pictures. Jake you mind postin up the ones you got?

I'll sort through them tomorrow. All the pics I got are from that same obstacle though, was in the Jeep for all the rest.

One for now:

He had a set of aluminum BTF ones in our garage we were gonna put on before the trip he smashed it in. They were for an LJ and we were gonna cut them down but never got around to it.

There arn't any here. The rear frame has about 8" notched out and a crossmember welded inplace. Heres the link to his pirate thread. If you really want some pictures that arn't on there I can walk outside and take some, hes my roommate.

I've actually been wheeling much harder since i put the 44 in. I never hit stuff near as hard with the 30. Now that i got that 44 i can mash my motor

and yeah what as what Ronnie said, that tj has a 8 to 12 inch section that has been completely cut out, and replaced with a hoop and cross member that goes across. Idk kinda hard to explain exactly how it is.


and yeah dayries, no way a stock wheelbased tj could have made that obstacle with how sloppy/slick it was at the bottom friday.
