    Yota buggy that followed us, not really part of our group at all since it wasn't a Grand Cherokee...




    Hells Revenge @ the overlook:



    Going up Hells Gate (Not sure on the name?)

    Thanks for the pic of me on Hell's Gate. Almost the same shot as my Avatar from last year.
    It was another great GSW.

    Haha, My favorite (and most scary) part when Britt was driving this weekend is when I was spotting for her and I told her to turn "passenger, passenger" but she thought I was saying "faster, faster" so she hit the 3 foot ledge pretty fast I told her the dont call it "Rock CRAWLING" for no reason.

    More Pics:


    Found some more pics that Mark from Denver took on the trail:
    Brittney flexin again:


    Front Shot:


    Boulder-John, I will send the pics of your WJ when I get home.

    Nice pics.! I need to get out there some day, but it looks like my Grand needs to "grow up" a bit.

    Anybody know how much lift that WK has? And WTF!?!? Warn already makes a front bumper for a WK, but I can't find a good rear bumper for a WJ?

    The WK is about 4" of lift IIRC. It's Dave Harriton from AEV's rig. My guess is that the front bumper is a completely custom piece from AEV.

    Two ZJ Buggies on Rusty Nail:


    The buggy on the left from the pic above after breaking a UCA bolt:


    My ZJ on Top of the World:


    Pam and her ZJ on Top of the World:


    Me riding the bottom of the Wedgie:


    Pam coming down a ledge on Top of the World:


    Me giving up my driver's seat to watch the new suspension at work:


    Pam doing her best Austin Powers impression. She didn't have the tire size to go forward, and couldn't back up because her trailer hitch was right up against a rock:


    Pam and I revisiting the spot where I proposed to her exactly one year ago"


    Cool scenic shot:


    Pam coming down the ledge that gave her troubles going up:


    I got a little lax on watching my lines on Spider and missed the line by about 3 ft:


    We took it kinda easy as I had just finished my long arms a week before we left and they still need some major tuning, but it was a great time!

    That had us all cracking up!! Here's a shot of my scary moment - the picture just doesn't do it justice, it's looking down from the TOP of the obstacle:

    I felt like I was standing straight up on my brake!! I look forward to wheeling with you again soon, glad you got your trackbar bracket fixed.



    Glad I could help a little on this one, I was seriously wishing I weighed another 50#'s!!
