indyORV @ the badlands 5/5

We had a small run on tuesday, the junkies of the group had to get our fix.
It was an interesting day to say the least, we have wheeled a ton in the past 2 months and a day like today was long overdue. Carnage was the name of the game today.

popped bead number 1

popped bead number 2 (was going to fix shaggys poppep bead)

The start of the blue trail, really this is the only difficult obstacle, and as long as you had at least one locker you walked right up

that was pretty much all the pics I had. We had body damage on both xjs, Gary broke the rod end off of his trackbar, Rod bent his tie rod, Jerrys fan clutch went out so he was over heating all day, and we had to change the ujoint on Brandons front driveshaft before we even started. Shaggy and Cowboy popped beads within 5 minutes and 50 ft of eachother....It was a rough day, but a good day of wheelin nonetheless. Oh and I didnt go unscathed either....I had a CEL on to start the day, but it went away early on

Sweet pics... Where does the Blue Trail start or pick-up.
I was there in mid April and but must have missed that one.

We ran Green, Quarry, the Yellow (or creek trail), Red, Orange and one that runs behind the quary wall that dumps you back out to the entrance of the quary.

Looks like you guys had a great time and great weather. I've been there on a weekday once, and it was quite empty....but it was raining.

Hope to see you guys on the trail before the warm weather is gone.

Soon.... Soon....

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

I dont know if it is actually called the blue trail or not, but I know we ended up in there, typically Blue starts beside purgatory, this was past there and down towards the pond to the left. It was a really sweet obstactle, but like I said, it was the most difficult one, the rest was cake
