Arizona Wheelin with Some Friends

Even though we knew it was going to be a scorcher in AZ today, Jack convinced me and a few other people to go wheeling...... I can tell you, though, the more seat time that Jack is getting with that new RK lift kit, the better driver he becomes!!! He CRAWLED the entire first trail today with no spotting!!! There are a few "poser" shots but all in all it was good times. Click on any of the pics to get to the album for todays run.....

Good times....

Looks like a ton of fun! You guys make me jealous with your close trails, and hardcore rock crawling! I have to drive at least 350 miles to see anything that even remotely compares to that!

Yeah, it was good times Joe. Thanks to Lisa for taking all of the pics. I tell you what I can't believe I ever wheeled with my old setup. The new suspension works better than I could've imagined.

Yeah Hackle, that big fall on CD got me again. This time thought it was good stuff havin my own cable to pull and keep everything movin along.

The flop was a friend of ours. That little obstacle is the only way out of the trail and for a short wheel base it gets pretty tricky. His MT/R's just weren't hooking up very well and it slid him over and dumped him on his side. It's all good though we got him righted and cleared the engine and everything was fine. Made sure that there was not fluid spills at all and we were on our way. Huck was a good sport about it. Minimal damage.

Nah, Jack need new little plastic bumper ends. If he could just get up that damn fall we would all be doing great. He is a little scared to just flat out hammer it up, and rightfully so with stock axles!!!! One day, he will drive that fall.

Here's a pic of my WIFE driving it......

Truth be known, its been dug out way more than that picture.

Yeah, how'd you put it today? That fall is my Elanor. Damn thing gets me everytime. I honestly don't see how anyone with a stock wheelbase can run that unless they just put the hammer down and got lucky.
