aside from having a bruised shoulder from constantly bouncing into the A pillar and needing to see a chiropracter the stock 64 with open diffs didn't loose any hub caps and made it through unassisted. Although, I did think the crazy jeep guy was going to attack me. He flipped out when he saw my old beast. I was secretly hoping he was pointing at Dean

Well he liked Zepp, Wes, Zettl (in his 40), and Dave Brown, but he didn't like me or Ralston IIRC - go figure

the wheelstands have a bypass to the left around a tree - I'd say it's really the last obstacle on the trail. At least the last memorable one. It's getting somewhat dug out so that's why we went so high (especially the shorty 40s).

There were some pictures in this thread of Dave and Kim Brown doing wheelstands, but it looks like they're gone now and there's just the pictures of the maroon 80 on page 3 at the same location. We all drove up the big hill no problems, I haven't been on that since I've had the locker and tires, what a difference!

It is ALL good - I figured now was the time to do it when the family was at home safe . I wasn't too worried till the engine died and then I looked over at Subzali and he was "gently" pointing passenger side . All I needed was for the crazy Jeep guy to show up and jump on my front bumper for me .

Seriously though, the spot was fine and knowing what was coming kept the skidmarks away . Glad to hear the "tub issue" wasn't as bad as it sounded.

Good to hear!! Good call on getting out early.

That dude was WILD . He yelled nice "Jeep" to me which I relayed to the group over the CB which he overheard over Steve's CB speaker. He came running back up to me apologizing for calling my rig a Jeep and then kept on.

Seems about the same as last year . I've only been on it twice though and last year it was with the LX. I avoided the wheel stand line with the family last year after watching Nemo catch MAJOR air . You pretty much have to put yourself over there or not be paying attention as you can drive right around to the left.

I find the tippy, off camber, sections to be worse but I don't like tippy . I actually managed to rub my entire hardtop along an aspen tree at one spot trying to get less tippy

Hopefully I'll get my pics up tonight!
