Well, I can say this, version one was well tested and put thru its paces. Can't wait to see version 2.0.

The ledge in big ugly has lost all its challenge. I watched a ton of people walk it all weekend.

That ledge on big ugly is not challenging any more.

The adventure trail hole/ledge is tough. Id like to see someone get up it. Should be a good show.

Huh? All I saw was game face John CTOR. I haven't been there since the Adventure trail was created. Might make it there Saturday to try out the Hydro steering but I'll be by myself.

I like the Bronco John.

Going through pics.....pretty sad where its gone since spring of last year all the bondo and fiberglass done fell off




Going a new direction, not 100% sure which direction that is yet. but it will be eb themed.

Right now, I'm leaning towards using an eb frame (original frame my body came from, eb in its current state is a 96 f250 frame modified). Then mounting an ftoy cage on it....
http://hendrixmotorsports.com/id4.html

Similar to this idea...
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/toyot...ld-starts.html

Most likely a ruffstuff 3 link front and 4 link rear.



Started the part out transition earlier this week with selling the roll cage from the eb.

I might have an opportunity to put some money in your wallet... I bought a sport trac, and could use your explorer guru knowledge. PM me if you want some side work within the next couple of months.
