My MT's pick up rocks. Do yours? (pics)

Check out the rock my ProComp MT's picked up. I crawled over this rock that was hidden by a bush in very poor visibility this weekend. I couldn't believe that it wedged this 100 pound boulder in my fender well. It wasn't easy to remove either! Lucky I didn't break a brake line, bend my axle, shred my tire, break a tie rod etc. I just couldn't steer my rig.





What do you think?

It took 3 of us 15 minutes to get it out of there. We pried with a tire iron with the wheels turned full left while 2 guys rocked the jeep. It dropped about 2 inches after all that work. Then I rocked it back and forth in gear a little and it almost came loose. Then we pried it the rest of the way out with the tire iron. Man was I worried I'd break something.

Great pics.

Can't say for sure (I wasn't there), but it looks like deflating the tire would have opened up a lot of space . . . correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, deflating the tire might have worked. No OBA though. It wouldn't be a problem until I hit the highway. Then I'd have to find a gas station with air. Might be a problem. I'd like to get a CO2 set-up but it will have to wait until I buy a few other things.

Did you try to lift the Jeep from the bumper to let the suspension drop?

It was so muddy that my hi-lift kept sinking too deep. I guess I need a longer hi-lift or to carry some wood in the rig.

Been there!!! I buried my Hi lift one time in some soft sand. I was wondering way the jeep wasn't going up, lmao. It ended up being more of a project to extract the Jack from the sand than it was to move the jeep.
Hey Jeep Daddy I see you are in Orange county. Have you guys run the Dusy eshrim trail? I am going to try and get a trip going next year with some friends of mine.

Never run that trail. Is that up near Big Bear? or is that up near Fort Tejon?
