Wheeeeeeeelin

yep, again.. i made it half way down one trail, realized the hub wasnt working, backed up.. fixed it, ran another trail, blew it up.. went back to camp, thought i fixed it, tried the trail again and it wasn't working, the hub thats part of the rotor is jacked.. all the splines are doneskiiiiiiii

thenn my radio went out, replaced the fuse, it worked for a while, went out again, replaced the fuse and a whole lot of smoke came outa the dash

so the radio is down for the count, along with the t-case switch, we had to get under the truck and pull the motor apart to get it into low (just to find out the hub was messed up still) so that left me out friday night and all of saturday, but its cool.. it was a friggin blast.


Props to Jacob, our new mod.. he put his ranger places that 99.999999% of this site wouldn't even CONSIDER. I would have if the **** was working

I was joking around with the guy that had the TJ, I was like "i should have hidden your jeep while you were in the shower cause you left the keys in it"..

he was like "I don't care.. take it"
i said "seriously?"
he said "yea, go drive around"
me "define drive around"
him "go wheel, i dont care"

soooo that was badass(now i want a jeep) and the KM2s worked real nice.. then later that night with him driving he layed it over HARD.. i think i was asleep until we came slamming down though

for the most part Jacob was hangin with the buggy on 42s and the locked jeep on 35" KM2s.

TJ with a 4bt



and then he blew up the hub



he came across as a snob? to our group.. we waved, he just looked at us and kept driving down the ranch road.

Ghost riding


Broken hub


(toss it into the "i dont want to drive a manual cause I'll roll back thread"... bunch of babies)

After the fix


I'm "mini-me" according to the guy who drives the SD.

my old coil overs may be making their way down to him.. idk

apparently Jacob was standing there saying "if he hits that rock its gonna make my day" and then JK slammed into it and he kinda slid his hand back and whispered "gimme 5" haha, hilarious at the time.

Awesome pics. Looks like a great place to tear it up.

Chicks might dig body damage but damn that sucks.

Looks like fun, but I don't and won't wheel my truck hard enough to get as many dents as the black Edge in it in one trip. I would be so pissed if I did that.

he was running the harder trails out there.

some are iffy on body damage (like that one) then others are a for sure deal.. we ripped the soft top off the TJ, almost broke the windshield(its survived 3 or 4 flops and a hard roll)

it was a good time
when i was standing on the tire of the jeep (white shirt)

everyone was like CAPTAIN MORGAN!!
that pic was taken a second too early, as soon as i lifted up my leg the tire spun (locker didnt lock)

and i somehow, by miracle, got my foot down, and balanced long enough to turn around and jump off then grabbed the tree... could have been BAD, or just really messy..


oh, and sorry about all the pics, its a ton i know. its jacking my computer all up haha

Come on down, you should come to Katemcy Rocks for the LAST run before it closes for good in june (we can see how your D44 likes the SC 4.0 with 42s on granite haha jk)

but really, if you ever want to come down let us know.. we can set something up somewhere.
