Here are some new pics of mine with the front stretch. Notice the high hood tube fenders. Also threw in a pic of my roll. The guy sitting on the jeep was a friend that had never been wheeling before. He was broken in properly.

Yeah wheelbase is awsome. moved the upper arms in a little to clear for turning other than that it works preatty good. Trying to keep it low is hard.

there is hard spots and easy spots. the ravine itself was easier then normal this weekend. it is the side hills that are more of a challenge. most people wont even try them!!

who was sittin on that rock down in there tellin everyone to go the same way over and around every rock? most people didnt even see the side lines. it was a regular ole freeway through there. hardly anyone was even backing up. they all just drove the same exact line. time to raise the stakes maybe? still a good time by all means but no where near what it used to be now that one line has been developed that anyone can drive. id love to come help groom it or extend it if that is possable. add some new challange to it.
