Yah Dan. I first popped the front driver side at the waterfall on Holcomb running it in reverse from the west side. Changed the tire, put the spare on. I popped the passenger side about 100 feet into it at the end of the rock garden. So we had no choice but to try something with no more spare tires to replace. I tried my compressor on the spare and it worked like a charm. It took 2 mins to inflate to 15 psi. Then lifted my passenger side and inflated that tire. Again within 2 mins I was back on the trail with an aired spare.

I guess it was a learning experience knowing that I can easily reinflate a popped bead.

Joe.

Thanks again for this outing.

Moabrubi No worries, too bad about the Gopro footage. Hate when that happens with good videos.

WranglerAddict It seems that Emily focused on her jeep with all the pics she took and I tried for a mix on my phone and the GoPro. Only her iPad photos exist now, but here is the link...

Nothing too crazy, but we will get some more of everybody on the next run!

That saved me about 4 hours today! Thought that was pretty awesome, they were just happy to see a jeep come in dirty from being used for what it was made to do.
Awesome. Bet they are going to be tired of you after a few runs! Lol.

Moabrubi Yep, Hope to do this again soon! Maybe next time with less carnage Just kidding, the carnage made it more exciting and gives us some excuses for some upgrades

Forgot about the bent tie rod too. Time for a chromoly one and to relocate that steering dampener .

sjchoueiry Thanks JC for arranging this run.
I had a great time despite a couple of mishaps. We learned something valuable though from these mishaps. I am glad it worked out fine.
Thanks for everyone's help.
It was great wheeling with nice people such as yourselves. It was also great meeting Brandon and Emily. Great people.
Hope to wheel with you again.
Joe.

Nope. Just pulled the valve stem and let the compressor run. I still can't believe it worked... twice!
