Thanks Culver's and Dave Thomas
You put on a great show for your 1st time out. Even with the weather I think it was a great turn out. We had a great time. Enjoyed the concept Jeeps, a nice addition to your show. Thanks to Dave Thomas for the Best Classic award. Thanks to the Mayor of Adrian for coming out and choosing our Jeep for the Mayor's choice. And thanks to Fonda at Adrian Dodge for choosing us for Best Of Show. This was a great honor for us and our Jeep. We greatly appreciate it. Can't wait till next year to come out and visit with everyone and to hear about the great times we all experience with our Jeeps.

Over 300 pictures. I did some minor adjustments on all of them. The ones posted here are a few minutes of extra work. If anyone needs anything please let me know (chris@223photography.com).

Thanks to everyone that stopped by our booth at the Culver's Show on Saturday. It was great to meet everyone, and hope we answered all of your questions about the park.
Thanks also must go to Dave Thomas for putting together a fantastic event.
We cannot wait till next year!

Thanks Again,
The Staff @ Bundy Hill Off Road Park

I guess it is my rear springs that are making me pay the price on articulation.

In red is what I have and in yellow is what I use to have. These things are 103% stiffer than stock.

I built this thing as an expedition vehicle more than something to crawl around with. Future upgrades might include ARB fridge, additional fuel tank, on board air compressor, and rear bumper off the top of my head.

The highest IFS score I've seen with an FJ is 704. SFA FJs I've seen over 1100.



I'll definitely promote this event next year and try to get a better turn out for non Jeeps. Hopefully that's a segment I can influence. I'll tell them you Jeep guys don't bite... They must be scared.

Yeah, the "Non-Jeep" event is usually held across the street at Hot & Now Burger.
I heard they have a Parking Curb Climb, and Best Parking within the lines contest? You were just at the wrong show.
Now go buy a Jeep!

I'm totally kidding you dude!
Nice job with the Photos and the Display at the show. Thanks for all your help.

Dang now I know it's chilly in Michigan Ed.

I must have been as wrong as that guy with the old Dodge car... I can't afford to go to the dark side and have this truck.

I hear that most parking lots have flex contests for those FJ's, do you have to sign a weaver to climb on to the parking ties? Lol

Nice rig dude, Great pics to was alot of fun.

We are getting the club started the meeting will be the first Saturday in November, hopefully we will see you there.

That was your score Chris, We recorded a 519 score, 55" travel, 106" wheel base 55"/106"x1000=519 (rounded off)

Anybody else needs their scores I still have them.

PS yes it is a 20 degree ramp
