(Yoder tried the climb but without a front locker, once the front tire lifted and started spinning it was all over for him, this is as far as he made it.)

I guess I will have to try harder next time so my only pic is not a broken truck.

Thanks for the Z-turn pics, I thought those turned out well.

Thanks again for taking us up there Steve. That Yellow Belly ledge just was going to happen for me. With all the grief you were giving me about the by-pass being closed this year for JadeRunner only, I had to give it a go.

I must say you rig did really well all day. Even if you did have to winch once on that hard line in the rock garden.

Thanks for welding of by broken upper control arm at 6:30 am the morning of the run. It had broke off after I looked at in Denver. But, I think it happen on a speed bump when it was really cold here. It's replaced now.

That local Four Peaks brewing company in Tempe sure makes a good Micro'. I brought a few six packs back with me.

Cool pics guys.

Steve, did you come out of that Z-turn without a scrape?

Adrian, wheeling in sandals?

A few srapes on the front bumper, sliders and rear bumper, but nothing on the body.

I always wheel in sandals. It just feels better.

Thanks for the other good pic and the top billing.

Terminator was a slider and bumper trail. Steve snuck through with 3 RCH's between his quarter and that rock. I did not.

Good trails, look forward to doing them again.

Four Peaks has some great beer. I always try to bring Kiltlifter home when I am down there.

Steve will need to weigh in, but the Tundra coils must be working well. They seem to stuff even better than the spacers and apparently ride well at baja speed. The last 3 times I have wheeled with Steve, he has driven increasingly faster on approach roads. Something must be working.

I went to Oleg's and now my junk is fixed, time to be bullet proof baby.

Tundra coils are unbelieveable. Makes me not want to hang a Dana 44.

Best front suspension BAR NONE. Fast, Slow, you name it, they are great. I really like the TRD coils. Yes they do seem to be progressive.
