Guess that's what happens when you let asians drive
This was the way off the trail that we were on VS turning around and trekking it back the 3+ miles in the snow (which would have been fun as well). I didn't get any damage to my front/rear bumpers (not to my knowledge at the moment at least) and I just inched her forward til I just slid down the hill until my rear tires came back in contact. The fronts were in full contact with the ground though (after I teetered over the bump a little bit haha)



After the snow run yesterday, I have to say, I effing LOVE my WJ more than any other vehicle I have ever driven in the snow. I was the only rig to NOT get stuck the whole day (except for the last pic), I was breaking trail and digging myself into snow banks like the wranglers that I was with. I even yanked a couple wranglers out of the snow as well with just my front hooks.

Posting a lot, sorry. But you gotta hear this!

I bought a 2" BB kit from Fat Bob's Garage a couple years ago. I got the Skyjacker shocks. On blew out like 3 or 4 months after I installed it. I got around to reading the warrenty on the shocks so I emailed FBG asking what I need to do to get new shock. They said to take pics and send it to them and they will take care of it for me. I sent in pictures and heard nothing... I tried to contact them a few times but nothing since Feb of 2010. So I emailed them the on other night just to entertain myself and a man replied saying the guy that was helping me out isnt with the company anymore and I fell between the cracks. To compinsate for my SH**y shocks and my sh**y 2 years of having to deal with it, they are replacing all 4! He is going to ship it out today! FREAKIN AWESOME! I AM SO EXCITED! They are amazing guys at Fat Bob's Garage. Taking care of customers like no one else! ...all in a matter of time! haha

I agree. It looks like the tie rod broke with that kind of angle. Must be a illusion if he drove home. Looks like fun to me.

I just had a birthday, but when I parked at work I realised I missed it. Darn.

it was cranked left all the way to try and weasel out of that tricky situation.

I drove home just fine, had a little lean to the left only because I was running 15psi on the left side and 25psi on the right side haha (my tire pump blew and nobody else had any air left in there tanks .. awesome right?)

I'll be looking underneath the WJ today and seeing if anything did break .. I am secretly hoping something did just so I can replace it with better than factory parts.

Got my old 4.0 loaded on the trailer to get started tearing it down for a stroker build. Wish I had another day off to play in the snow at the cabin. Most of this came yesterday.

Installed the surco rack from the KJ on the WJ tonight. Kinda wish I had a 45x60, but this one fits our skis and handles plenty of cargo.
