    It has changed a bit. It’s totally different spotting an IFS crawler and the line we took...but damn. He was a little tipsy, stayed off the brakes, kept forward momentum and got through the tight butthole section. These trucks impressed me.

    Damn @JoeCOVA, those tires on the freeway!!! Lol They did sound like a jet engine when you passed up.

    I think that's the most important part and probably the the main thing that gets these things doing what they do.

    I feel your pain!!! The harder shit you do the more you break. I really want to get out there. All those states out there look like a total blast and the scenery that accompanies the trails is pretty epic.

    It's clearly all your fault. :)

    I always blame the spotter

    I thought you might have kissed the rear quarter again around the tight left coming down. You made it though. It was so slick.

    Hahaha. Yeah it's definitely always my fault. Which is fine. Keeps her from being worried and lets her keep getting out there.

    Ha, ya that was close a few times. I kept sliding in the snow there right into that rock.

    There was another tight left hander going up I got pinched trying to wrap the GFC around a tree sliding on the snow. Somehow we made it out. Was awesome but super slick.

    I would sure like to see your truck on dry(ish) terrain. Maybe a Wheeler lake or Holy cross run. Hell, even the Gulches in Divide is a killer time.

    Im always impressed at the wheeling some of you guys do with the GFC’s. Although I’ve heard that they have a pretty good distribution of center of gravity.

    One of my favorite trails...but for the love of my sanity, during the week runs is prefered. I have sat at French creek trying to come down for 6 hours one time. This year I was almost ran over at French Creek by some idiot in a JLUR. I seriously had to jump out of the way, take a cold bath and people still thought I was hit...it was that close. We left his ass in the water after that. They were from Nebraska and had no business even driving, let alone on that trail. We just took the far left line. We spent a few hours up top hiking and having fun on Cleveland Rock. Then came down to these tools all messed up, doing I have no idea what, no tree saver or snatch block....idiots.

    I make fun of Jeep owners a lot. Buy a Rubicon and go "anywhere" mentality. Unfortunately for this crew, they had to learn the painful way.
