toys for tots run

i just got back from the toys for tots run and it was great. this was my first time to do something like this(a virgin no more ), and i hope to do it again. it was nice to see what a pretty much stock jeep could do. to tell you the truth, i was somewhat amazed. a few times people with modified jeeps had a few more problems then i did. so i guess it's not so much what you drive, but how you drive. hope to have some pictures posted later on in the week.

stock jeep -1
trail - 0

Cool AD. Toys for Tots is such a great cause, but you realize, finding out what the beastie can do causes the shakes when you can't get out on a trail soon enough. You'll be jonesing in a couple of days, looking like an addict without a hit.

Get those pictures posted!!!

Cool Painted Rock Park

I was there too. It was a blast. And the best part was I didn't break anything this time. Made it through the entire course without , well with some scratches< and acouple acred of mud under my jeep. The were about 70 vehicles that went in and about 6 or so that didn't make it out alive.

Cool Toys for Tots

I was there too. Had a blast. Everyone was really great there. And the best part is I made it out without, okay with some scratches, but nothing broke this time. I did have about an acre of mud to chisel loose from the undeside. But now I have a ramp in my driveway. LOL
