Suprisingly nothing actually broke, but let's just say I need a new oil pan and a different skid/trans crossmember

However I've now been awake for 41 hours straight and only slept 8 out of the last 84. I think I'm going to be clinically dead until sometime tomorrow early afternoon


Thanks again guys for letting me tag along. Definitely will have to do it again

Glad to wheel with you and nice to meet you and the pup... I can't speak for the others in the group, but I will personally be making more day trips and maybe some overnights... I had a great time. Nice to have something decent within a reasonable distance from home...

I made it out today (Saturday) and the family and I had a blast. You can read about our trip at the following link as well as watch the video of the rock crawl shown in the previous pic posted in this thread.

I saw all of you guys running the "Winch Hill" when I finally headed out to the trails. By the time I made it back out to the front you all had already loaded up and were on your way out right in front of me. Sorry I didn't get a chance to wheel with any of you. Maybe next time.

Here is the link to the video from today:

Couple pics and video's from my phone:
XJ4life

S.Hembree abused his TJ for about 15 min to get to this point........he stopped right there




xj4life on winch hill. He almost made it all the way up without pulling cable. He had to pull on the large boulder at the top. He was positioned great and was hopping all 4 tires, the irok's just didn't stick enought to get him up over .

I have a video of Nuzzy going up winch hill as well, I'll post it once I figure out how to make it a smaller file size.

You don't happen to have the first part of that vid do ya?


Oh, and I think I should prolly set my idle a little higher. That bitch just did not want to stay running Or maybe it was just pissed at me for beating it like a step child all day

That's all I got with my phone, I'm pretty sure bluexj got the whole thing. He has to break it down because the file is too big.......And it may have been pissed at you for kicking it's A$$ earlier Vehicle tie down strap FTW

I was looking at it more closely this morning. Doesn't seem like the mounting piece that broke of the tranny will have any ill effect or weaken the tranny itself at all. So I'll prolly just fab a new mount out of plate and weld it to the clocking ring as a good solid mount kinda like the toyota guys do with their tranny mounts. Then it'll be ready for another round of ass whuppin
