Trails in Sparta NJ. Meet up with some guys and spent a couple hours in the woods. Lots of quads and dirt bikes out there.

We have never lost 3 rigs before, you had a vacuum line issue, YJames pinched a bead, and SK put a hole in his tranny pan. It happens, nothing was catastrophic and all should be up and running for the next time. The damage occured in the new rok section, carange is not fun so I am going to change the obstacle to make it easier. The last rocks I put in there were just too much, SK did manage a perfect crawl all the way out on his first attempt though so it was "doable" but not worth the carange if you miss the line.
Time for a new obstacle, instead of hard we need technical. Skill not mods should be able to get you through. I'm thinking log bridge, not like the one we built last year but just 4 trees dropped across a stream 2 lashed together on each side for just the wheels to sit on. This will require good wheel placement skills and a very steady throttle foot. Modded rigs will hold no advantage over the stockers, all about skillz baby!

Like you said it happens. My starter went to the next day. I replaced that but am doing my vacuum lines on Thursday when I get paid and have off. I will be there next time and ready to go. My friend mike with the dark green tj cant wait to go again either. Whens the next ride gonna be? If its this saturday I dont think Ill be able to make it cause I should be getting the rot on my driver side wheel well cut out and new welded in.

I had an awesome day Saturday! It's wheeling its not baking lmao. The vacuum issue was that your 4wd not kicking in I have a fix for that especially if your front isn't locked like mine. I love that pit the end is a bit of a challenge but like you said we will all be up and running I will be more careful until I fab up a skid which should be done by June. The log bridge seems cool it's not going to make me stop wheeling my style is to crawl that's what I did but a and b lined up on my trans pan not my skid doh. Looking forward to the next meet! I will be taking it easier until I am fully skid protected tho

Yea well yjames said he didn't feel a suction from the vacuum lines. I'm gonna double check them tommaro. If it its not them then I'm probably just gonna bypass the cad and call it a day.

And 2 saturdays from now is perfect get my rot done and a few other little things I want to touch up.

Look up Orange County Jeep Works on facebook, his name is Mike. He's a nice guy, wheels my place every so often with a variety of vehicles. You may have seen pics of his latest build on this thread at my place, can't miss it a zebra striped Land Rover Discovery.
Mike

Mike
I've seen that discovery in a lot at an LR dealership in edison nj. Maybe it's a copycat
