Lower and Upper Collatoral Damage 5.31.2008

two jeeps and one buggy breezed thru the collatoral damage trails this morning.

Was great fun.

I might have some rear steer issue or I need some comp stickies because I could not get my back drivers side tire on the ledge no matter how I tried.




so I went around it which was very tippy, kindof like whiteline.



Allan's passanger rear raidal claw was cut by the rocks in three locations. ouch! time for bias
so we called it a day after finishing the two trails. Was a great morning and great company. We'll run DS next time



Thanks!

Good stuff Ben!

You guys are lucky to have trails like that so close to you.

What is the red item on the winch that is also being used as dead weight on the line when in use?

That is a Daystar Winch Hook Isolator... although Ben isn't using it properly.

Is it enough to be the weight if the cable snaps?

I havn't snapped a steel cable before so I can't say for sure. It does look rather tiny on that cable line doesn't it but this is what it was designed for. It feels as heavy as my hooded sweat jacket which is what I would throw on the line previously.

*here is a small writeup on it:

Had one of these on my Power Wagon winch. Not sure of the price for the Daystar isolator but I think the winchsaver was $30 shipped. Good ole Louisianna guy makes them out of his house. (Raised white letters are not on actual product) www.winchsaver.com

He's using it perfectly properly. Once you put them on they don't come off unless you take your hook off. And yes it will help with dampening of the winch line if it breaks.
