First time wheeling

Went out with five other Jeeps to Peacock Flats here on Oahu. The first trail is called The Initiator. The first big obstacle was several boulders to get over. It took me a few attempts but finally made it. Here is a pic looking the opposite direction of travel.

Next we crossed several washed out ruts.

That is my 8 year old daughter in the passenger seat. She loves going with me.

Last major maneuver was crossing a deep rut that raised the front drivers wheel off the ground about five feet. We had a four door JK that was heavily modified get stuck and had to winch out. I was convinced I'd get stuck but made it across easily. Here is a picture of a new Black Ops Rubicon.

Afterwords we drove down some very dusty trails and was just nasty afterwards. Ended up going to a car wash and just spraying the inside out. Had a great time and only broke my stock side step. This was getting removed anyways once I install the rocker guards.
1998 Wrangler Sport: 4.0 with a 5 speed, 2 1/2" spring lift, 33" Duratracs, Warn winch, and few other things.
