Popped my cherry at Bundy Hill today

Finally went wheelin for the first time today at Bundy Hill off road park in Jerome, MI. Just my stock TJ with 31" tires. It did a lot better than I thought it would. No damage other than a broken sway bar link. I need quick disconnects anyway so the trail just started the work for me haha.

Check out the videos too. I started out small, but got comfy pretty quick. You'll also notice my girlfriend getting jealous while I was toolin' around, but on most of the obstacles she was too freaked out to ride once she got in lol.

Looking at the videos now it looks like I gave it more skinny pedal than I had to on the hill climbs. Other than that lemme know how I did.

Looks like fun. I went June 2nd. Made it about 50' thru a deep v shaped trench and sheared a blot of in my u-joint on my rear shaft. Had to pull the rear shaft and limp home in 4-hi. 67 miles at 48mph= a long, but early trip home. Bought a bolt extractor set, lesson learned.

I should probably do the same, but I wasnt worried about it this time since I wasnt doing anything too serious. I at least want a 3" lift and skids for the steering box and gas tank before I hit the harder trails.
