    The Upper HD pics on the above link are pretty good. The new Wally takes a bit of getting used to but it's sure fun to drive. Makes trails like Upper look easy. I need to weigh it to see where we're at now but I'm guessing around 5300 with trail gear.Widest point is about 62" now, at the front bars of the cage, approach is still poor, I left the winch pretty low in the trade off of CG height vs. approach angle, departure angle is roughly 90 degrees.

    I know this is a month old, but What happened to Toby's rig (MoneyPit)? Did he roll it or just get friendly with a rock on an offcamber trail? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    He rolled it, or more precisely, flopped it. Messed up the fender, hood, rear quarter, door. Nothing real major but definitely not straight anymore.

    apparently the definition of "major" can vary a LOT.

    It would have cheaper to buy 2 or 3 other Blazers and change one of the bodies! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
