I should have listened to Jack…
So I didn’t tell the X-guys I was going to come along but one of the guys is in another club I’m part of so he offered me a seat… I took him up on the offer and said I would meet him at the airdown spot.
Is 5:50 pm and I roll up on a bunch of x-guys and their rigs… A few stock rigs and 3 that had lifts and 32”-33” tires. Im on 37’s and the body is beat to hell and back. As I am rolling in all eyes turn to me and get a little bigger. I wave to the guy from my club and see him pointing and explaining something about the Jeep. I park and make my way to the group for introductions. My guy lets me know that the nOOb in the group freaked out when I pulled in because he didn’t want his rig looking like mine. “What trail are we going to run? Are you sure I will be ok?”
The group airs down to 20psi (yes 20psi) and heads to the dirt. We get to the first hill and everyone gets out. WTF???? I ask if someone broke something and was told no they just want to look at the hill. We start moving. The guy in front of us is stock with big 31” street tires. He makes his way up the hill when we hear SNAP. I get out and get him up the hill so we can see what’s wrong. He blew apart his front diff. I swear the bump he was climbing was no bigger than a speed bump. He blew apart his diff on a speed bump… And that was the first hill.
Most of the rest of the night was spent driving around and having a good time. All in all I had a great time and I’m glad I got to go. It was fun to see a bunch of stock rigs out on the trail having a good time.
