Hey Chris, this is Mike. Thanks for your trailside mechanic skills! It actually drove pretty straight on the way home. I need to ease up on the skinny pedal a bit. Skipping the woops on a quad is a little different than a jeep on the rocks...lol.

Well, on a bad note - that particular section of FB5 is not quite the challenge anymore since the rok o'doom was moved .

Nice to see the second section hill climb still retains some technical ability.

Here is Chris on the first part of The Can Opener. I'll post the second video I took when its done uploading.



Here's the second video.. I had to shot it off and help spot. It was really wet and slick up there and Chris's Jeep was just sliding off rocks. Had it been dryer he would have made it.

I am really thinking about selling my 35's and going with 37's and 5.13's. Gunna have to play with my 35's a bit more and see how much going under 9.5 psi helps on the rocks first.

I love how your jeep barely hits anything too.

No worries Dude! I grew up down in Newport and it's mostly mud and some sand. My first rig was a CJ5, but I mostly ran Toyotas. Just getting into the rock thing. It's different, but seems like it will be fun once I get some lockers.

Good try Chris, nice throttle control and line. Sometimes in the NW it is just to slick for grip.

Nice Banks316, Hopefully when it's dry again I will have some skid plates. I would like to run ALL the harder trails.
