    Hey Guys! I am just now getting to posting the pics, but I spent a couple days off roading at Sand Creek with my buddy (he got a new FJ). We got a little braver the second day and I ended up getting stuck in a creek while pulling out a jeep, and he almost flipped his FJ at one point!!!! Everything turned out okay, so we had a blast... Get ready for a ton of pics... ENJOY!

    DISCLAIMER!!! I know I probably posted a few to many pictures, but I figured too many is better than not enough, you can scroll through them fast if you want!!!

    This is the jeep we were trying to get out! Notice the quality craftsmanship on the headlight!!!

    I hooked to the jeep, and my buddy hooked his FJ up to me to do a tag team pull!

    He said we were the first ones (out of about 3) that were able to budge him!

    This is where the trouble started! When I backed up while pulling the jeep, I just sunk when I hit the creek...

    That is the guy from the jeep we were trying to free (we did get him unstuck after we got me unstuck!)... You can see how my back wheels dug into the sand and I was stuck!

    Here is where Mike almost flipped his FJ! That hole was deeper than it looked! This pic is taken after we got the FJ stable, but the back wheel was as high as my head when I stood next to it!!! I thought for sure he was going over, but he settled out... Don't have too many pictures of the recovery because it was just me and him at the time (the girls were back playing in the creek)

    Looks like a great day! Sand is always tricky to play in. Remember always tread lightly.

    Word of advice... never pull others backwards unless you planning to replace your gears soon :rolleyes:
    Always pull people with your rear tow points. ;)

    Thanks for the advice! I did not know that! I did it twice that day, hopefully it will be okay, I will always try to pull from the rear in the future. I guess "reverse" gearing isn't as good as "drive"? Or should I use 1 or 2?


    Yes I was! We were having a BLAST!

    Yes, everything is okay. Only problem I had was a couple rocks got stuck in my springs, and I had to take the wheel off to remove a few pebbles stuck between the disc and heat shield (made a terrible screeching sound). All is fine now (and that means it was a fun day!).

    Its pinion\ring problem primary. Especially in the front diff. When you pulling backwards you tryign to rip appart gears, which usually ends up increasing backlash. Over time either teethes will give up or bearings become so loose they will make tons of noise. ;)
