NO pics of the Jeep. It is RED and looks like every other one on the road
LOL that was aimed for 'coon huntin'
Actually the nut is hard to get to with the winch and all. I tried to tighten it Friday, but it wouldnt budge. I will pull the bumper off soon and get it tight again!

Definitely will be at the Fall Crawl.

I usually head to Uhwarrie twice a year with the isuzu/honda/toyota/ anything goes group from the wire. Already have my season pass. 5+hr drive for me though.

Looks like things are in the planning stage now. 4x4Wire Uhwarrie Thread

No trail damage, but the passenger side hub stayed locked in after I unlocked it. that meant that the front drive shaft was turning on the highway. The drive shaft let loose (U-joints) half way home and destryoed itself and some other things that were under there like the fuel lines! . They arent leaking right now, but they are damaged enough to need replacing.

the rear locker is totally gone now and has to be removed and replaced with a new one. We were lucky to make it home the way it was.

I noticed it as soon as I got up to highway speed. I stopped a couple of times and couldnt get it to come free. So, I drove it like that until it let loose. If it had new U-joints on it, everything would have ben fine, but they were old and worn out.

Actually that is a Badland bumper. The sticker is from "the badlands" in Attica In. I made a trip there last year and got the sticker.

Here is the website

Did the Jeep take the same line you did on those last few pics, or did it swing to the left? Is it a Rubicon that they have? I would be impressed if they took the same line as you with a stock Jeep.

LOL no they didnt. It is a stock Jeep unlimited. They had a hard time on almost everything. But They had a great time doing it and will be back again with mods to it so they can hang better next time.
