We all know that FJ62s, even unlocked, kick ass. Good job!!
Life is tough without a thumb, isn't it? Heal quickly.

Oh yeah and a new shackle

But it's already got the exhaust fixed and new shackles, so now it's just down to the thumb and some irritating electrical problems. And yeah it sucks without the use of the thumb on your dominant hand.

Nice report Matt . Chinaman's Gulch is a unforgiving trail if you make a mistake or lose focus you will pay and I have the trail damage to prove it. Hope the thumb get better soon.

Yeah Ken I wasn't gutsy enough to get THAT high on it, maybe that was my problem

Chinaman's was a fun trail, but I think it's like Clint Eastwood says - a man's got to know his limitations. Me and CJ7 Matt definitely found ours. Happy Cruisin'!

By the way where on that trail did Nathaniel break his long side?

He broke right there at the squeeze! Lotsa weight right there on the rear driver axle.
