ive got some pretty dang cool go pro footage . they are pretty huge so uploads to youtube is slow and the conversion to their format might kill quality a little but let me tell you, its like your there again... kinda looks like a dogs perspective running around at 20 mph but hey.... it's something!
Ive also realized that I REALLY want/need an auto. To much concentration is needed to do steep climbs with the clutch to pay attention to lines. AW4?
My damage report is : cracked windshield, rashed up soft top. 1st time I ever had to do a REAL waterfall climb, saw a live scorpion, and had to use the winch on myself, ate deep fried turkey, had deep fried oreo's in pancake batter, AWESOME btw,. Must mean I'm a wheeler now.... Thanks again Jeff for basically being the host of the party and bringing so much comfort like the coffee and the amenities ...... Great meeting people who I have only chatted with off of here. Great rigs, great people...

Let's get together later this week for a postmortem and exchange pictures. I have enough computer stuff to do a bunch of disk burning.

Looks good, thanks.

I edited the youtube link. It seems that the ones with the .be extension don't work properly,

I had a great time as always! Thanks to everyone that showed up. best JF turnout in years. so far the only damage i can find is the small bit of body damage on my passenger rear quarter/turn signal and busted mirror. i need to look into my fuel system and see why my pump is straining so hard. It has to be either crap in the tank or a plugged filter. my crappiezone booster/master is leaking all over too. hurray.

I think i'm going to redo my front pump a little bit. i need some headlight protection. that stock bottom tube location is crap and kills the approach angle. just ask the paint that used to be there.


YJ vs TJ vs XJ....just saying

just looked at the videos. its looking a little more dug out now. i know that one section i rubbed my body on is a whole lot tighter then it was last year.

Premo, I'll get up with you and pick that up at some point.

I'm going to need some help plumbing the rest of this compressor for air up/air tool lines at some point if someone has some knowledge on those type things.
