Me too! The hood and the tailgate skin will be on for a couple more promotions, SSGT, Gunny, maybe even First Sergeant, but when we go to Sergeant Major, they will become wall art.

Well... It's in pretty good shape considering what I have in it. About 25 bucks in gas, a worn out 44, and 400 bucks. Everything is tight, but one u joint bushing rubber thingy is ripped. Everything else looks pretty good.-



First order of business is to tear it down, soak what's rusted up in some cleaner, and find me a locker.

Rode a lot this past weekend at Harlan. Ran trails I would never think the Explorer would make. I started wheeling alone, then jumped in with a group of 5 buggies on cut tractor tires and boggers... I slammed, beat, drug, and gouged the axles and links, I wore out the skinny pedal, and SGT Ex kept kicking ***. I did find the biggest weakness... The rear end. I continued to drag and hang it up on almost every trail.

Rode Underestimated on Sunday... Holy Bajesus... This has to be one of the toughest trails at the park. Its all good and gravy until the very end... Its a rutted out mess with huge slick rock faces, mud everywhere, downed trees in the trail, just all out ridiculous. Thanks to Warn and a couple pass byers who stopped to help, SGT Ex made it out. They all said i was insane.


Also blew a tire on the way back home on the trailer. AAA doesn't cover trailers... Thank goodness we were put in contact with Allen's Body Shop in Harlan. These people are amazing. They helped us out on a Sunday, charged us little of nothing, and offered to write a letter to AAA for reimbursement. They have a whole junkyard full of Jaheeps and ferds, and full size chevys. If you need parts in Harlan, look them up.


Here are some pics

Wow, I didn't even post up about the Wishbone Ranch trip

We went to wishbone ranch for the Crawl Magazine's reader's ride of the south back in August.

Here are some pics of that trip.

Trying Terry's Territory (competition hill)


Furthest I got


Where I almost rolled it. Rick, Mike (5brosfabrication), and my Warn saved the day.


Wearin it out on Snot Rock


Notice the passenger doors have a "u" shape to them now


The name for this trail was very fitting....


Running the wash.


Wearin it out there too!


Couldn't fit around the tree, so i took a different line
