We got snow out here in NorWest Texas and I wanted pics...only one was somewhat decent and I had to add a filter to make it remotely cool;

This one was the next day...the snow stuck all day.


3rd time on the trails...no cross bars or roof basket (made a sheeite ton of noise)







And then today's projects
The seat back protector thing:

Cool stickers on the liftgate (the guns)

I had the TJ Rubicon center caps done in ABU Camo w/ dark blue Jeep lettering but 3 of the 5 were screwed up so I had to redo them. This is what the good ones looked like;

What I changed them too now;


And I got stuck for the first time ever on Sunday...


And my buddy was the bad *** who pushed up on the front so I could back down it.

Will do! On the 3rd i'm going to a place called Hidden Falls Adventure Park here in Texas with a bunch of Wranglers and a fellow Patriot. It'll be fun and it'll really show the Pat's limits.

So a while ago I ordered a charcoal gray PlastiDip wheel kit from a website that I probably can't post y'all to but anyway it came in I won't be dipping my TJ Rubicon wheels for a while but I wanted to get these when they were on sale (smdidnt really get a huge deal on them...only saved $10 )

Kit also has the metalizer finish to give it a better look on the Pat.

Alright Patriotcaptain...begin the drooling lol
Quote:
Okay so we had fun yesterday and I beat the crap out of the belly of my Pat! It's currently covered in mud and dirt so we'll see what the damage is after I clean it tonight

Pics from the entire day...I didnt get any action shots of me pretty upset but a few others got pics of me. Not many though [insert uber sad face here]



This red YJ in this next pic was operated by a REALLY old man and he bad some balls! He was going everywhere that the 'Yota buggee thing was going and he had absolutely no problems. The red JKU was the trail leader for the day. He was one of the only people who had been there most of the day. In the third pic was the 'Yota I was just talking about. The two operators were nuts imo but they didn't flip it at any point. I was driving when they went up a hill right next to me that had to be a 65-75 percent incline! Crazy bastards lol





This guy's name was Juan and he had some balls for being in a mildly modified YJ. He was keeping up with the old man and the 'Yota until this. He just couldn't make it over the big rocks that had slick surfaces. This was the last hill he tried haha


Just on the warm up trail I got stuck going up tore up hill and had to get winched up the last 1/5 of the hill...embarassing. Wrangler SRAs suck *** in loose dirt/rocks btw. And they are not any better when slightly wet.

This was 'Lee-Roy' after the warm up trail...on the backside of it you drop into a mud stream thing and well this was the outcome haha rooster tailed it up onto the hood and passenger side


Not my pic but the stock white YJ's son took these. This was after driving through a little stream of watter. I finally got to water foard, HOORAY!!! No leaks haha Ben is the guy in the pics and he helped me all day, being my spotter...hes the driver of the red JKU and the one who organized this whole thing. A pretty cool guy.



The son also took this but it's an action shot so blurry. I kept hitting loose rock but eventually made it up.


Now back to my pictures...just parket at the end of the creek trail;



Just a trail


Stopped to wait on people catching up...posing next to the JKU lol


The old man we were waiting on...he went dickin around somewhere so we were waiting on him and the 'Yota


One of the bagillion hills we climbed ... ugh





Parked again...I feel like every pic was just parked lol btw, that black JKUR in the background is supercharged and stock height. Takcled everything he did w/o using his lockers! Pretty awesome.
And btw, I only went down to 25 psi...next time I'll go 15 to see if that'll work better with these sh*ty tires.


Hey go figure...another hill...A LONG ONE...


This guy was throwing mud all over his daughter in the back seat...she was a trooper thougha nd didnt cry!


Gotta make a new post for more pics...brb

Okay back for more pics...

He went in reverse to get more traction then got out alright.



Now you can tell in the last pic that he was throwing water all in the back part haha his two daughters were awesome though and didnt cry or anything. Pretty cool.

I didn't even try my Pat though that. I would've sunk immediately.

Now this is the supercharged JKUR. And Ben is the one spotting him. Heres my crappy video haha
Hope y'all can see it, it's uploaded to PB. Once you click the img it'll make a pop-up so dont freak if it does


His commentary at the end of this one was great haha I laughed when he said it and laughed even harder when I caught it on camera! "And that's what we buy skids for..." lmao

This is the same valley/hill. A black TJ doing it easy.




And this was the end of the day...I was riding in the red JKU on level 5 trails. We didn't think the supercharged JKUR would make it but he did very well! And the tan TJ is amazing! It's magazine worthy, I swear! Love ti!
