Looks like we a bit of a challenge for this Saturday. We cut a new hill last week that stopped sadass cold and now James is feeling pretty confident after the last challenge. This one may play against his rigs setup though, the hill is steep and somewhat bumpy. The YJ is tall with a short wheelbase and stiff suspension, gonna be tough for sure. The real prolem will be fitting James head back into the YJ if he makes it haha!

If sadass hadn't already tried the hill I would have bet he would make it, he has a long wheelbase with soft suspension and lots of horsepower. Usually this is the recipe for a hillclimb monster. The hill is pretty steep and long and just in case someone makes it we have a second one waiting that is even steeper with a very technical section right at the top! Damn this is getting fun!

This made me laugh ! Thinking of un doing the front shocks and see if I get more flex.
The YJ will be locked and loaded !

You may want to bring that helmet you had with the quad! Probably not a bad idea.

The rzr runs both hills no problem so I know they can be done but it will def be a challenge. Oh yeah, when you get to the top it's a 90deg turn, ya know just to keep ya on your toes...

I'm contemplating bringing my quad with me this weekend instead of the YJ. Either would be a lot of fun

Man, this weekend wont be good as well. Going to philly to pick up my new seats and kid crusher cage.

Then the following weekend Im probably gonna work so I can get some money for the weekend after that. Unless I put in some hours in next week. For gas and to be ready to break anything. So Im hoping 1 weekend from this one I will make it and if not 2 weekends from now I WILL be there.

Im just hoping its nothing my stock YJ cant handlem but Im willing to try anything

You know it was a good day/night of wheelin when there are still 5 rigs here the next morning! Only one due to mechanical failure, nice to see we are adult enough to have arrangements for dealing with the end of the evening when beer is involved. Very cool!

The one rig still stuck out on the prop is the big Dodge, it pulled a bead in a mud hole and tried to go to China. After much winching and tugging it was extracated but had to be abondoned for the evening due to not having a spare.

That was a hell of a day! Pics in a bit.
