That was from the mud bog project! That was my first work project with the club. Many moons ago for sure. I believe I would be the the last surviving member in the club from that time. Good times and great memories!

Rocks in the creek are the same. The one way at the beginning has gotten rougher. I think the RZR's and Rhino's dig out the littler stuff that the big guys just drive over.

100 did great, but took a beating. Both rear lower arms bent, got into a quarter panel coming down the Wall, and mangled the front skid/bent a diff mount up front. Plus ripped up the ARB a bunch. He was bummed a bit about the bumper but not too much. Quarter panel was already wrecked from wheeling the rocks down in Arizona, but we did stop and remove the tail light so that stayed intact.

I tagged my driver rear door in the exact same spot as in south dakota. That was coming back down the creek after it had poured rain, and I tried to go to the uphill side around a big rock, and ended up sliding into it. Just kissed it though, so no further damage.

Default 2017 Holy Cross Pilgrimage

First...a big THANK YOU to Isaac for leading this epic adventure. Second, I'll echo what Isaac already described...the trail is pretty tough in some spots. I usually don't need my front locker, but with it acting up on this trail, I was wishing I had it in a few spots. There is one spot below the creek and one spot above the creek that are almost as difficult as the creek now!

Was a great and fairly quick day with only three trucks and all of us drove home...albeit with quite a vibration for me (see pic below of my rear drive shaft)

Just before the rear qtr scrape requiring removal of tail light.


In the pickle


At Holy Cross City

Nice views!


My rear drive shaft...rough ride coming home, but already getting rebuilt by Boulder Driveline

My first body damage in 9 years...I've had lots of bent metal (bumpers, control arms, etc) but nothing to the body. The ARB hit hard enough to push up on the body and the fender hard enough to dislodge the fender flare. Looking behind the flare, it was only held on by two tabs that were already glued from the PO accident that "totaled" the vehicle. So, I was lucky to get to this point without knocking it off. Now the tough decision...deflare or repair. I've written many times that I prefer the flared look, but we shall see? Can't drive it like this for too long


The drive shaft was damaged, but the DOM sleeved rear lower control arms performed exactly as I had hoped. Hit them hard with ZERO damage.
We got hailed on and hard rain on the way down which made things interesting trying to keep the chosen line! My Cooper Tires did fairly well considering the conditions. Aired down to 14 and probably could/should have gone lower since I packed really light for this trip knowing I would need clearance.
