Today Marine Mike rolled in Twisted just across from where Choppergar rolled yesterday. We got him out aok, with the help from a club member who showed up with a winch, and the dodge pulling the strap.

i broke a bunch of stuff too.


1. broken gas line - loosend the bed bolts and lifted it about 5 inches to get to the line.
2. Alternator - was running 18-volts, so i got out a hammer and smacked it, went back down to 14 and stayed
3. On the v-notch obstacle my throttle line bracket bent and reved the engine way up...again hammer to save the day.
4. transmission on the rock garden was really mad and made all kinds of crazy grinding noises, i told it to stop....it did and was fine the rest of the day
5. Brake master cyl leaks like crazy now.
6. Broke a body mount. grade 8 bolt snapped in half wtf???

Hey guys.. Finally got around to posting. I had an awesome time up at Twisted. It was great meeting all of you and my wife has now gotten the jeep and offroad bug too. Here are some of the pics we took. Once I get them all up I will post them, plus my roll over and recovery vid.
