IRO offroad event pics/vids and 4xguard testament!

Finally got a chance to wheel the WK after all the mods this past weekend up north at the Iron Rock Offroad customer appreciation event. It was myself, my gf and her XK, a buddy w/his JK Rubicon, and another buddy w/his lifted ZJ. I've been to this offroad park plenty of times w/previous XJ's, but this was the first time wheeling w/the WK. Getting used to the IFS took some changing of wheeling habits, but I have to say the QDII setup is quite amazing. I never got stuck, but did get high centered a couple times on some boulders. Every single piece of armore was put to the test. Including the rock rails supporting the weight of the jeep. The front skid also got a chance to do that, but didn't fare to well. I should say the skid held up great but the mount bent and the guard pushed into the unibody/radiator support and bent it in two places. Other casualty was the passenger rear wheel facing was pushed into a rock and forced the rear to the drivers side causing the DS to get caught on the gas tank skid pulling it down some and marring the DS weights and boot.

The GF also got to wheel her XK but after picking the wrong line on a steep decline w/out a spotter she had it on two wheels and that was the last of the wheeling for her for the weekend lol.

Casualties for the weekend:
WK-Multiple scratches, cracked rear/front bumper(minor), bent unibody support, two chewed up rims, dented gas tank skid, multiple gouges in armor, and molested DS.
XK-a few scratches and a shook up GF.
JK- Scratches, plugged radiator, and blown cooling fan(we had to do a parts store parking lot hayden fan swap).
ZJ-Scratches and both rocker panels dented pretty good.









Our mascot for the weekend, The Dude. Yes he is posing as a real-life Mack emblem haha!

I know right? We brought the HD camera and it sat in the camper the whole time. Winter is fun hi there. A bit hairy but fun. Could probably stay in Virginia or somewhere close.

Great post, Tosh. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun - and hope your gf will recover from such a large dose of wheeling, lol. Excellent Vid's... Makes me wanna wheel my WK again... but then that would entirely defeat the purpose of why I got a ZJ.

All Gear, No Skill.

I think I was the only one crazy/pigheaded enough to hit those rocks with our current setups. Haha!

Dang Grant! Know what obstacle did it in? Time for OTK setup.
