Not a bad time. I waited waaaay to long for the rock garden, only to see that it was really, really hard this year, and I had my 4-year old with me, so I did like only the first 1/3 of it for his sake, and bailed out before anythign even close to hard. Crap, I should have just gone for it.

If you were there, OK, but don't go by the pictures, you can't see the hard part at all. Everything I saw go through, aside from a full-boat rock buggy got pretty well stuck. Winches and a loader with forks were how most got out, and these were some well-equipped rigs, not a 1-locker Scrambler on 33" ATs.

Here is a crummy video I took of a nice JK going through the rock garden. You can see the full rock garden.

YouTube - 2010 Great American Jeep Rally

I heard that by 11:30 they had 650 Jeeps. They were estimating 1000 Jeeps for today. There were a lot of nice rigs. Hope you all had fun, we did!

Here are some other pictures and our rigs in the last pic.

I was hoping to see some more custom trucks. There were a lot of nice rigs that were way too clean to be wheelers. I had fun watching the rock garden but the 2hr ride made me not take my half door, no sway bar, bias tire rig. Hopefully next year I will take my jeep to beat up that rock garden. We need more ZJ's! I only saw maybe 5 and at least 3 were stock lol

95 Limited 5.2, 7in lift 8 adj control arms, 36x13.5 iroks, custom 3in y pipe, high flow magnaflow cat flowmaster 40, KOR radiator suport, and plenty of trimming

yeah i was in the evb convoy, yeah i realized it was a bad idea once i got on the highway, i couldnt get warm for the rest of the day. it was fun though, my cousin fell asleep on the way back, and this dude in a car seen he was hunched over sleepin got up next to me and laid on the horn and scared the hell outta my cousin, that made it all worth it.
