Nice pics! There was some serious silt coming up that hill....I did the slow crawl through it, but it looks like Raffy used the "heavy on the skinny pedal" approach.

Too bad that little bump is in the way blocking the fact that he was two-wheeling it there for a few seconds. Lol

You may be able to grab individual shots from photobucket for yourselves, but if not, PM me and give me your email and I'll send them to you.

That hole was pretty dug out when I got to it. I had to bump it pretty good to get over it. I can only imagine how much harder it got once your group went through it. I was the red TJ parked at the top when you came up. Your jeep was the "saharacon" right? I drooled over it when you passed me by

Yep, that was me and thanks! I have never seen that hill so soft before the hard spot, I guess its a good thing we all ran it AFTER Victor Valley 4WD worked on it. Its a weird trail section because you cant really change your line without climbing the wall. Did you guys all make it through?

I was the only one in out group to make it through. A couple tried but didnt hug the wall like i did. It took a few tries but I made it up. I was amazed how easily you walked right up it after I had to rockbounce off the wall. That hill was reallly soft

Thanks again for organizing. We had a blast.

Good meeting more Jeepers as well. Thanks to Jay for leading us down the mountain after my wife was feeling a bit sick! (May or may not have been related to my driving or the extreme "2 wheeling" she did with Chris and his wife on the first obstacle).

Already looking forward to the next meet and run.

Speaking of which, anyone have video or pics of that first obstacle/incident?

Def a fun day! pics and videos are great! Thanks for puting those up, it was nice meeting everyone too.
Cleghorn really showed me the flaws in my jeep that need upgrading lol. Next time i'll have a 1" bigger lift and tube fenders for more clearance in the wheelwell dept and maybe some better bump stops so my tires dont get so jammed into my fenders lol.
Thanks everyone for the great time!

Mine looks like Bill's only longer. Maybe I should just post a pic...




It's a 2004 LJ with a 241 (Rubicon) TC, dana 44 f&r, Detroit in the rear, out boarded 12" fox shocks, and GenRight Alum armor. It has a long arm suspension now, but is getting ready to go in for some surgery (mid arm with a tummy tuck).

What are you doing to yours?

Wow sounds like a major makeover!.. What kit are you going with for "mid arm"??

I was planning on jumping on the savvy/currie bandwagon but I'm indecisive still so i'm being open minded about other kits at this point.And of course tummy tuck it since its an LJ

I've heard long arm kits on LJ hang awfully low and drag how true is that?
