Fun on Sweetwater!!
 
First vid of Cleveland testing the articulation on his new suspension.

Moses ended up having a little trouble with his radiator fan, so we high tailed it out of the woods. Days not complete until someone breaks something, right??

I've been putting the action cam on the front of the Jeep but this time we thought we'd throw it on the back. I think the results are much better.

She growed up. Lol.

Wish I'd have seen that ride post earlier, that's so close to me.

It's a Sony Action Camera and the thing rocks for only $250 (w/ wifi, $200 w/ out). A below average battery life is my only complaint.

Looks like suspension is doing well.

Great pics!

Looks like y'all had some fun.

Several observations though:
1- Vader requires race numbers on the sides of his rig due to faster than normal trail speeds
2- it seems Celeveland has discovered the beauty of articulation ant tires, even with open diffs
3- I believe that if the tag on the front of the stuck rig was GT and not G, that the winch on said rig would have been used

The Snail has spoken. Live and learn my children.

Dee, I do hate that Vader maliciously destroyed your carrier

Oh no!! I didn't maliciously do it.. I feel incredibly terrible about it and of course offered to help pay for a new one. I'm sorry Dee.

I feel like Cleveland when he couldn't make it up that little bunny hill. Ill wear the cone of shame...


Pretty sure I can just clean (instead of paint) a number on to the Jeep.

Trailsnail 05-19-2013 08:57 AM

Lol, I know you must have felt bad. BTW, the exhaust sounds great

Thanks man!! They were all poking fun out on the trail saying I sounded like a Subaru.

Trailsnail 05-19-2013 09:39 AM

Subies sound great. My Banks is similar but lower pitch

No worries on the tire carrier I was looking at getting a new one anyway.

Looks good. Is that cotter pin the only thing holding the arm closed?

Is your other one repairable?

dee1025 05-25-2013 01:24 AM

Cotter pin is just extra support. It might b why do want it cause u can have it.
