Rausch Creek Pictures

Went to Rausch Creek, PA Saturday. Had alot of fun until 3 people broke their rigs on the hill climb (crushed fender, twisted driveshaft, snappe d35 axle shaft) and todd sunk his tranny in a mud hole (tranny filled up with muddy water).

Here the pics. I'm driving the black rubi.








Right before the hillclimb.


Steep part of the hill. Notice the front tires barely on the ground. I was told the springs were just hanging in there. If I didn't have the tire on the back it wouldn't of been so drastic.

Spinning some tires.


Checking out what broke. (dana 35 axle shaft) Notice the tire coming out.


The famous mud hole. Should've checked the depth before ya went through. LOL Note those are 35s totaly covered in water.




Dropping the skid and draining the tranny fluid at camp. It was way overfilled with muddy water and mess. You like the tire being used as a support for the jack to hold up the tranny.

Well, that looked fun. I can easily do tranny fluid on a trail, but did your buddy have a spare axle shaft?!?! (ouch)

Which trail was that and which difficulty? I'm just being curious for a friend of Mudnuts (www.mudnuts.org).

Yep it was locked. However another guy with a locked d35 made it up and another Jeep with an open d35 made it up. The CJ was the one that twisted the driveshaft. The guy that bashed in his fender did it after he made it up the hill. Was backing up and not paying attention and wedged a tree between his fender and his front bumper. We had to winch him sideways off the tree.

Nice pics! The pics with you going up that hill look kinda like Potatoe Hill, fairly steep with some off camber rock ledges.

That hillclimb looks like the hill on trail 6. Nice pics. If it is, when I was there, only 1 out of the7 rigs there made it up, and it wasnt me. It was very, very mud covered. Looks like you had fun.
