AZ - lower and upper Collatoral Damage

On friday we ran lower and upper Collatoral Damage.

Was a ton of fun... poor Ross had a tough time though... broken yoke on the tcase output shaft, broken rear driveshaft, broken front ring&pinion, one cut MTR beyond repair and 2 blown beads, synth winch rope broke 3 times and 1 broken nylon strap. All on the same jeep! He was a good sport and didn't once complain. We all had a blast. We had to drag his jeep through the rest of upper CD and back to the freeway but was a good friendship bonding. lol. Joe trailered the broken jeep and drove his own trail rig back home on the freeway hitting his rev limiter at 50mph!

I don't think Joe will mind me posting a link to their webshot pictures...

then on Saturday me and my older sister Debbie went on a MUCH tamer night run in Sedona. it was fun and casual but very cold on the long drive back down to phx. fortunately I found a great deal on some indian blankets... 3 for $20

after the Sedoan trail run I waited till everyone was aired up and on their way. One family brought two YJs and a little ways down the road they were pulled off to the side. The son's YJ had a leak in the rear drum somewhere... dented the drum itself pretty good. I clamped the brake line going to the rear axle with a couple of vice grips (two were used cuz they had a long drive down back to PHX and if one fell off he'd still have another vice grip holding the line). So now he had pressure again to at least use his front brakes. Just goes to show that even on the tame runs, stuff happens. I got an email from them the following day and they were safe at home and very grateful and they too had a blast.

Nice pics Ben. I can't believe Joe led you all up thru Upper with only him and Kevin being able to do it without a cable.

Was that a dshaft ujoint that Kevin shredded on his buggy?

Oh, and on a personal level I'm glad that none of you stock wheelbase guys made up the big fall on lower.

Joe and Kevin were the only ones who made it up the last fall on lower CD without using a winch. My jeep slipped into that notch and I wasn't able to back out to try a different line. That was a bummer... I blew it in about 3 seconds flat. kindof lame. lol

Although I got lucky and made it up the 2nd fall on Upper CD(the one where Ross broke his rear driveshaft) without a winch. That was pretty cool.

Kevin's buggy looking rig's front driveshaft extended too long and the two halves slipped apart. He was able to put it back together easy enough while I crawled up the fall to the right --did I mention that I didn't need a winch line on that one?

Good because it's a rule that no one else that is stock wheelbase is allowed to make that fall if I can't.
