    Thanks! Haven't made much progress in the last year. :( Money, time, and marriage issues have gotten in the way.

    Some offroad shots. Wish I had more time, trails and gas/mod money! :D
    (These were all back when I still had 285's... And they still clear everything except 1/2" on the UCAs when turning lock to lock.)

    Buddy's jeep got flooded somehow even with his snorkel. Had to keep boosting his battery to get him going again. Damn auto couldn't be push started. :mad:

    heh... I managed to tow him down this hill thinking we'd better get off the trail in case we couldn't get it started again. First gear, 4Lo works wonders. :D
