Flip flops are def on the rise as the new off-roading foot wear

Looks like that mud would have gone right into my K&N intake and fried my motor. Thats why I need an intake skin/cover.

Looks like a real fun place to wheel. I fried an alt going through mud like that once. I don;t go through mud like that to often anymore.

What's the frame twister?

Whats the frame twister? Is that the one with the pieces of wood in it? I think I've seen it on another forum.

it has wood and like 3' round 1' deep holes in it, most of it is lined in cement. little water in it can make a traction issue but my open diff 08 walks through it. the 4x4 course is kinda a place to turn a stock jeep noob loose in and they wont kill them selfs....at least not too fast.

Dave said you only went if there was mud, but I was surprised there was any. It was just that one area really, the twister had a little but nothing to get a good mud bath.
