Default The Cliffs Insane Terrain Park: May 9-11

Jeeperz Creeperz, jeeptj1999, and myself hit The Cliffs Insane Terrain Park this past weekend.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v356/xj4life/Cliffs%20May%202008/

Highlights:

Jeeperz Creeperz lifting a tire


jeeptj1999 trying to be like his hero :tonka:


just a cool pic


more skinny pedal


i think its time to pull cable


Mmmmm mud


damn posers :miff:


when jeeptj1999 gets on the skinny pedal and releases the squirrels its best to get out of the way


show off (i'm about 15ft below, down hill from him )

no photo tricks here, its really that steep


ah Kevin i think you took the wrong line :tonka:



typical Cliffs "trail"


more Cliffs mud, more like clay with a little dirt


nope i dont think its going to fit




better stop smiling or you're gonna get a grill full of mud


look on the bright side its only flat on the bottom




Hmmm, I guess that's why I couldnt turn left all day

AAAAARRRGGGGG! My crap is soooo messed up. heres the tally

Jeep:
1. melted postive battery clamp
2. flat tire (posibly no good anymore)
3. bent soft top frame (again)
4. power steering no worky
5. brakes no worky

Trailer:

1. running lights no worky
2. flat tire
3. broken safety chain






I didn't get nearly the pics Chris did. I had the whole family, 2 kids and wife with me, thats enough work. As usual the cliffs didn't dissapoint. Had a blast, start working on everything tomorrow.

I would suggest a significantly stronger bracket for the track bar if you hadn't already.... if the other side let loose too it could have been really bad.

How are you building the next one? All new or reusing some parts?

Why is it every pic my wheels are spinning wildly? 95Geo, nice call on the bracket, course it is a fairly strong bracket to begin with and I bought a Xj from a guy who haden't had the track bar hooked up for months lol.
