Took it out again today to stretch its legs. Of course I forgot the camera on the charger, so here's a couple cell phone pictures.








Not to extreme, but it was good to get the Jeep out.

Went to the mounds today. Broke an axle shaft in the middle of a "new" trail. Had to get pulled out of the trail by two other vehicles, and they pulled me straight into a tree after the driver side doors bounced off a stump. The bumper wasn't finished, nor was it built to withstand this kind of impact. Anyways here's some pictures.








This is the second time the jeep has been smashed into a tree on the passenger side. I'll be getting creative on the rebuild. Stay tuned...

It wasn't very fast but it was a 1 ton chevy on boggers and a YJ both hooked to me. So it had a lot of force. Winching would have been the way to go for sure.
