That or have them stop walking while filming. Not that hard to turn and run up the trail a ways before turning again and resuming filming. Another note is that the subject doesn't have to fill the entire frame. Zoom out a bit, because the subject isn't filling the entire frame, you see more of what is going on and the shakes aren't near as bad.

I did have an absolute blast yesterday though. That trail is WAY more enjoyable when you're not in a stock rig an constantly worried about what just hit! Although I had a couple of "oh, shish" moments when I heard stuff hit, and the diff leak makes me frown, but it's part of the game.

It was a blast. Still no call from that guy to help him pop his fender back in all the way. Maybe he came to his senses and figures out that there was no real damage once he put the clips back on.

Here's the carnage from the truck. I know it doesn't seem like much but the thing is only a few months old. The wife had a little too much fun; she already wants to take it out again......

Ya, we discussed rock sliders yesterday. If she's going to keep this up she has to get them.

Khris helped me out on the radiator and I'm good to go. I can't thank Khris enough, I hope he enjoyed the "I Told You So" when he got to work this morning. Somebody was arguing about the radiator not fiting the 02 thru 04 TJ's. It was tight but it fit.

I'm down with with hitting a trail this Saturday morning before Hooters if anyone is interested.

No I think it has always been that way unless you pay for membership.
