Default Silver Lake 5/11/08

Dunes were almost empty last weekend. Except for the hill climb, there were hardly any people there

But I spotted this tall dude driving around in puddles:






And this is my little cj5 posing:

For spontaneous flipage, its the only way to roll your car without actually wheeling.


turn to fast = roll over
flexing on curb = roll over
surviving 3 mph roll without a cage = awesome

He is obviously trying to compensate for other short comings.

Or his wife is really short and he finds it hilarious.

I think it's kinda funny that the first pic states that it is "wrong".

Did anyone else notice that there is a bridge on the axles that the springs are mounted to?

I could see it needing to be that tall in say.... something like the Florida swamps, but on silver lake that is almost a death sentence to ride in that thing

The best part is, he probably thought you thought he was awesome when you were taking all those pictures.

How do you suppose he gets into that thing?
