That's why I mentioned the editing room, I was bashing SAS jobs just as much and also brought up the fact that my rig didn't break. Rebecca did like the way my rig handled the trails, much smoother. Robert Yuhas, the Director wanted to see a winch being used, I just set-up the opportunity. Once my right front tire was pulled up onto the rock, I was free, but just kept pulling in the slack afterwards. They didn't even show some of the harder stuff that I completed, but hey the show still kicked ass. I don't think Rebecca would have even tried some of the stuff she did in the Jeep, if it wasn't for the rock climb, because after that, anything I did on the trail didn't bother her, like earlier, she'd scream on the slightest off-camber situation.

Friday in camp, Jason asked when am I gonna SAS my rig, I laughed and said never! He said "give it a few years"....Afterwards the teasing began, but it was all in fun a games. Me getting stuck wasn't because of my IFS, but simply because of no breakover clearance. Soon this won't be an issue...flat belly! Beside my inferior front suspension, was superior that day

On the way back a Honda was on the wrong side of the trail going around a blind turn, we approached head on and I was over to the right as far as I could go when we hit,
well I should say I used his car as an RTI ramp.

I'll post more photo's once my cardomain site is working properly again....

Just knocked the front end alignment out, which took about 5 minutes to fix. No other damage.........didn't even touch the bumper.

yea the MTR tread was cool
