It was never on an edge like that but a mechanical breakage or slip of the pedal could make things really scary or really bad really fast. At the bottom of the switchbacks was an old snow cat that had obviously rolled down from somewhere above and the mangled mess was creepy! I actually somewhere have a picture of my friends XJ at the bottom looking up the switchbacks with the water fall and house in the background that I blew up into a poster size. I should find it and hang it in my garage!
is that supposed to be on black bear in Colorado?

You know, now that you say that I just assumed it was but I've never actually seen anything regarding the true location of that picture. And even more... I don't remember the trees being nearly that thick up there cause it's pushing up towards the tree line basically if i remember right. It was 15+ years ago we did that trail. I also don't remember the uphill cliff being that extreme either. So maybe it's just my mind putting it there but in reality it's possibly not.

Either way i need to dig out that poster sized picture and lay it out flat to get hung!

This article lists that as the "Death Road" into La Paz, Bolivia.

I'm pretty sure that picture was originally taken for an ad for warn hubs back in the 70's. Think warn was out running that road back then?

While I do agree that that pic is likely doctored...its still freaking awesome.

I was thinking the F1 intake. I've read nothing but good about it.

I would PM RatMonkey before you invest in that. He has completely built his motor from the ground up and been through it all. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/r...-body-1346572/

I may rethink it after reading that. Ratmonkey is the man and I trust his opinion.

Anyone have any experience with tire deflators? I was eyeballing the brass ones that advertise 3psi increments, and the currie ez deflator with gauge.

I have the VIAIR deflator, it works great. Some guys use the ARB deflator it is super fast.

I bought these for my dad as a gift back when I was in high school guessing around '94. He used the crap out of them and when he got out of the offroad scene they fell in my lap and I use them too. They work great, only complaint though is your starting pressure has to be at least double what the finish setting needs to be. That's great and all but say I have them set to deflate to 12psi. Well I only run around on the street at like 22psi so they won't kick in for me. So I either have to inflate my tires more then I typically do or run them a bit lower in the dirt. It's not the end of the world and I work around it but it is something to consider depending what your street pressure is and desired trail pressures are.

I've still got the leather pouch and little instruction guide and everything amazingly enough. LOL
