So, what tires on yer truck here in the last pic, Jerry? Are those 33's?
no 31's.....the guide (who had a truck like mine) has a lift,lockers and 33/10.5's....and a 3vze to boot.

and LUMPY is working on trying to keep my exhaust together with something other than a Pepsi can.

as of writing this.....it's still together

LUMPY is home as of about an hour ago.

Well, I like to say I made it home in one piece, but I made it home in two. lol After the day of wheeling on Sunday with Joecan and another Jeep we met up with after doing some trail cutting, I finally tore the bumper completely off. Yay!!!!!!

Only issues I had were the bumper, and my idle, no biggie, The bumper was on the way out before we even started. I think 92Toy's bell crank did in in a little while ago. lol. But that's another story.

As far as the idle goes, some how it went away when I turned it off and back on again. I think it was just the fact I bumped up my timing from 0 degrees to 6 degrees and the fuel pressure set on the weber to 1.5psi. Maybe running a little rich. Setting my timing back to 0 degrees helped the intermittent problem on Sunday, with the exception of some large inclines we took on a few trails on Sunday.

Anyway, pics coming soon.

Glad to hear you guys made out well today wheeling!! I was way to wore out to go today and after taking a closer look at my 4runner glad I didn't! Here are some more pictures for your enjoyment!
Tim dropping off a ledge

giving the cruiser coils a good work out

XXXtreme22r entering the Fire pit, Pictures don't do it justice!

Joe in the middle of the fire pit

cool shots coming up a hill climb I high centered on last year before I installed my lift, Made it this year!!


Tim stuffing a tire

cool pic

Another hill climb


Hello Mr.tree we will be getting acquainted shortly

Yup I hit it

The last trail saturday night had three lines to choose from, looking back wish I had chose a different one. Got hung up here and apparently scraped up and dented my drive shaft pretty damn bad. It looks like a twisted pretzel stick!!!! I have a vibration now above 65mph so anybody with a stock driveshaft they would like to sell let me know please!
For the record I did make it


Uploading a video to youtube when I go to sleep tonight!!

while I am thinking about it, Liny4runner (not with our group) on here blew a front diff while at the park on Saturday, not even 10 minutes into the ride on his first obstacle.

Camp site Joecan/RyanC on the left, myself on the right


Not any of us, but this makes me want a tow rig


Too bad the trailer was in the way, but the one on the left is sitting on 40's I think.


Some cool FJ's


BeaterToyota's rig Not with our group but is on here


Another photo of that South American 4Door Hilux. This was originally a diesel but now has the 4.3 and SAS. He was in the middle of putting in longer front shackles when I took this photo.


Prerun line up



That is our guide in the front

Now let me tell you a story on our guide.

About 4 days ago, I put a message on the Rausch Creek Forums looking for a guide to show us around the park a little better. Noone replied for 3 days. Josh (our guide I think that's what his name was.) finally replied the day before the trip. I look at his post count and it was his first post on the forums. He had been registered on the RC Forums since December 09, 2009. Pretty stand-up if you ask me to offer assistance to a bunch of guys who he didn't even know. Hopefully he will eventually make his way here to see our gratitude for his outstanding guidance. He even had a trail run layout already mapped out.

Yep, that's me. It was good to meet you. I saw most of the rest of you on the trails, but didn't have a chance to say hi. On Saturday I was the guy riding shotgun in the gray FJ80 Land Cruiser that y'all followed back to the parking lot. I broke my rig on Friday.

Here are my pics from the East Coast 4Runner Jamboree this weekend...

Joecan navigating one of the early trails


YOTALUVER on the first big obstacle of the day, if you want to call it that for him.


RedJeep (Tim), who was right behind me, navigating the same obsticle.





92Toy cresting at the top of a pretty good hill (sorry it's a little blurry. My camera sucks)


IFS flex poser shots of me and Joecan. Any higher on that rock and my driver rear tire would be off the ground. I think my procomp es3000's are too short. I also forgot to undo my front sway bar.



YOTALUVER playing on some hills. Myself and some others decided to sit back on this one. I don't like hills. (I will explain later)


Joecan on the very top hill. We all though for sure he was gonna roll coming down this. Pic Doesn't really do it justice. However you can see from the angle of where RyanC was standing how steep this really was.

Not quite sure where this is, but me following behind Tim in the red Jeep.



This was fun. Joecan in front and somehow I made it through this without the use of Lumpy as spotter.(who is a dang good spotter by the way)


Our trail guide's rig


I don't quite know how I got ahead of these guys. lol


Finally some carnage. First carnage I know of was me. Go figure. Haha.


Quick down and dirty trail fix.

some misc photos Sunday morning

YOTALUVER


I made it out not quite sure how. lol.


Joecan and his engine bay. Our group mudrunner. I decided to stay out of most of the large mud holes, due to the lack of a back-up alternator which I fired both of mine the last time I was there.



Zeb's Home built bumper. Nice logo touch.



That's it for my photos of day one. Day 2 was just me, Joecan/Ryanc and another Jeep we tagged along with on sunday.

Videos of Day 1 coming shortly.
