I always miss all the fun stuff! I'll be up there weekend after next I think, should have UCA's and 33's by then, finally got the pathy put together aftter my body lift experience...

Im waiting for all the bigger trucks to go over that big boulder in the camping area enough times, that it just sinks down to about, oh, 3" tall, so I can climb it! ;)

Looks like a fun time. I'm going to try and make it up there in September when I get home. The wife wants to go camping and wheeling for her birthday...... I am obligated to oblige. Hope to have a 360 in it by then too.

I missed the XJ flop by a couple minutes.

I will be in line behind you to go over the rock after that happens too.

X2 on the pics. I spotted the taco in the background on one too.

Scottie, I was going to ask you if I could have a trial fitting in your Sammy. I would like to find one for a trail vehicle someday but I don't know if my '6"5 body can fold into one yet.

they are suprizingly large inside. I can fit no problem but I'm only 6'1" or so. In a tracker I actually put the seat forward a little bit too.

Great pictures, Looks like a lot of fun! I need to get out there sometime.

Great pics, and videos. I must have left before the flop down the Undertaker. I'm glad to hear everyone is ok. If the uni-body is still straight, you can cut the top off and caged it in, and run it harder.

It was cool meeting some new people. The group from Jackson was cool, wanted to wheel with them Sunday, but someone didn't bring a part to repair one of the rigs, so they finally packed up and left out. They had been there since Thursday though.

Looks like everyone else finally had some fun after the hang overs wore off. Hope to see all of you again soon, out there on the trails.

No it didn't. A front stinger is there to divert you sideways on a front endo and offer some protection to the top of your grill. You rolled sideways.

stingers are also there to keep the nose of your truck from falling into a frozen cravass in the arctic


they also repel bears (no bears in any pics of the exoed zj!)

"stingers" are useless and offer no value.

while we're at it, this stinger makes yours look a little underdeveloped... dont worry, some day it'll grow.





that zuk belongs to a friend of mine and he thinks it will save him some day, I make fun of him too.

I did watch a stinger keep someone from flopping at the Twisted Trails comp a few months ago. Kept him from falling onto his roof in a front flip coming off an obstacle. Allowed him to hit reverse and back it down onto the wheels.
