Default Drummond Island May 19 & 20 Plus grandcherokee's wedding

My pics from the weekend. I don't have any wedding photos since I was standing in it and hands were busy with other camera's but I have a few wheelin' shots

This was a shake down run for a couple of Jeeps, Mine, Aaron's, John's (SuperYooper), and Mike's (xjtecvol) first offroad experience ever (no pics sorry Mike).

Aaron (friend not on board) XJ freshly lifted and exocaged and skidplated with ford 8.8 rear 4.56 welded and a lockright in the Dana 30. Running 33" TSL's front and custom grooved Boggers rear, 9500lb winch. The short arms are temporary until he can make some longs




Here's Karen (grandcherokee) 94YJ 3.5 BDS 2" body, 1" shackle 4.0 auto, XJ long side conversion, ARB in the D30, OBA, 33" SSR's with a few extra grooves, Warn 9.5ti




Bad coil - luckily, I had a spare



John (SuperYooper) - Old school YJ renegade with a 350 and a fresh tranny swap & long side xj shaft conversion, 34" LTB's, 9500lb winch - did iI say this thing had a 350??? sounds killer




Matt (me - sodapop) 95 YJ w/ Dana 44 front w/5.13's, F8.8 rear with Aussie and 5.13's, 35" MTR's front 35" grooved Boggers rear, Homebrew highline hood and custom tube fenders, SOA front, BDS 3.5" SUA in the rear, Warn 9.5ti.
My 35 on the Driver front is about 2-4" under the surface




Poser shots

Big water crossing, Matt broke a main leaf coming out of it, this is Aaron emerging from the water -



Matt's broken spring, fortunately it jammed itself into the hanger, and we were about 150 yards from the exit gate.
