just got back from KOH and man what a great time and race we had. Our Full Body JK rocked the course and after a long delay due to a radiator fix we continued the race but ran out of time when we hit the 9:00PM check point on lap 3 at Chocolate Thunder. we left with our car running, driving and in great condition in spite of a JB-Welded radiator! Our friends Eric Anderson, Lance Clifford, Shad Kennedy, and Cody Wagner also did a great gob and killed it on the course. I didn't take many shots cause I was in the pit, then the booth, then main communications radio for the race so some of the photos are mine and some are from our team of media guys we had. :cheers:

Ok guys if you have been missing out on Poison Spyder Posts and my FB page Here is what happened. (sorry for going MIA all the sudden. been getting swamped with life)

Went to TDS this past weekend and it was a BLAST. Had a great time wheelin with friends and the Spyder crew.

Went out Saturday with Dusty and some of the guys form SoCal Broncos. That is where the video DTS had previously posted is from. went up it flawlessly! So then Sunday went out again and figured i'd try another line and well.. that wasn't the case. ended up unloading the front end and cam down on the driver side of the jeep and cased it on the roof.

With that being said very minimal body damage. the Fully welded TJ Laser Fit Cage took all of the brunt of the fall. some scratches and scuffs but no sign of fatigue. the fenders front and rear are untouched and the hood is still pristine. the windshield, and windshield frame is wasted tho. the Rigid 50" took a gnarly beating tho, bent and cracked housing. but every LED still works like new. the SPOD attached to the windshield frame is still in working order and the housing for it didn't even crack. the soft top is ruined tho, ripped and bent beyond repair. Steering components are wasted and ball joints are trashed. some rear end noise too.

This was a different line I took that day. Different line mixed with driver error caused a roll over for the TJ. Jeremy and I are fine, just a bit bruised up. We were in good hands with the Poison Spyder crew, friends, and family who helped get us out safely as well as getting the Jeep back on all 4's. This is what happens when we take risks and go for new heights. Experience doesn't always come from success. Jeep is banged up but nothing we can't fix. Thanks you for everyone's help that day. Couldn't have been in better hands in a situation like this.

Next step is the rebuild.

After reading this whole thread today, it's almost heartbreaking to see it roll. A beautiful rig man.

Thank you, it was heard breaking to see the aftermath trust me.

But we will rebuild, strengthen where it was weak, and add new to make it better. 1 more week and it should be on the road again

So still in rebuild mode. I cant say I broke everything from the roll over. some of the things Ive found broken have been fatigued for sometime mos likely.

Front center link and drag link are waisted.
steering heims.
Upper ball joints.
Front upper long arm mount on axle blew out.
Lower seats for C/O springs broke (only the ridge the spring sits in)
Trans flush
Oil change.
diff fluid change.
both rear axle shafts torqued and stretched.
carrier in the 8.8 cracked.
rear tire swing latches.
best top and bows.
windshield.
windshield frame.
driver door.
50" Rigid light bar. (still works, just bent and housing cracked)
PSC 50" light brackets
D2 dullys from Rigid bent brackets.


thats what i can' see and think of now that I bent tho.

So in fixing everything its gonna take forever. Fortunately for me some of this is easier then I thought to find!

Redlands Motorsports found a new best top and hardware for me. Scott Hartman had a windshield frame from there old KOH TJ they had. and work has some of the brackets. its just a money issue now But were making progress.
Rear end is getting a total make over with new locker from Eaton a full Detroit locker with Motive Gearing 5.13 front and rear, with Factory Ten cromo axle shafts. Rock krawler is supplying new suspension components and steering from their race car and stretched LJ. gonna get Poly performance ball joints and some new Timken bearings for the front rotors.

got the windshield painted and door fixed form the body shop next to work here and the top cleaned and installed. starting to look like a Jeep again
