Sorry about the quality, i had to steer, shift, and hold my phone. this is best viewed with the volume up. this is in 4 low shifting the manual valve body from 1st to 3rd. 4.10 gears, 35' tires. listen close for the shift. they come pretty quick. I wanted to power brake it up a little. I couldn't use my left leg on the brake, I was steering with my knee.
i believe this was all 2nd gear.
Bill

With age comes wisdom, for most of us. Chi town Jeepers not included.

So Gmakra is mad at me. He saw the videos, but didnt respond. I can only guess he feels left out, no invite to the "Ridge", and no videos (sent to him) that I sent to a couple other smart phones.

Scott, buy me a GOPRO for my B-day on the 26th and I'll post more vids. As you can see, they can be mounted most anywhere.

On the non Jeep front. I picked up a Henry 22 mag Golden Boy yesterday. Research showed the new 39a to not be as good as the older models. The local shop didnt have any, nor did they have a Marlin or Browning.
No buyers remorse on this purchase. Plus I picked up 500 rounds of ammo, which most stores don't have right now.

Bill

Why does it remind you of the Rat Patrol?? Because he drove around in slow figure 8s revving his engine?

I guess I should have bought a AR instead of the Henry.


Thanks for the clip Matt. When the first jeep jumped the dune, I'll bet it was close to bending the front axle, like I did last year. I did get a little more air though.

That's the way those in Chi Town spell it. I means the same as YES.

I have to tell you everything Scotty.

And please excuse Matt, he got humped by a deer today. The turkeys are waiting in the wings ( no pun intended) till tomorrow.
