    Here are some pics from our groups Tellico snow run back in Feb. This is my first time posting pics, so bare with me. All seven rigs broke the first night on the rock garden near our cabin so we spent all morning sat. making a parts run and fixing ****. By time we made it to the top on Lowere 2 there was about 4-5" of snow and ice. This was our first true snow run and it was bad ass. The black 1ton K5 is mine and the rest are yotas and jeeps.


    Me @ the cut back on lower 2.

    Those 44's with a v8 sure do mess it up for the rest of us.

    The only real breakage that I had was a fire on the wiring harness for my passenger side rock lights. It melted the relay to the fire wall. And my master cylinder took a crap about a 1/4 of the way up the rock garden causing me to back down with no brakes. Other than that the only major damage we had was a cracked pinion brake rotor on virgils yota, A sheared rockwell shaft and a busted fuel pump on the grand cherokee, a few tires pulled off of beadlocks, a sheard hub on the yellow yota, and a little body damage.

    Sorry if some of the pics come out kind of dark. The LCD's started to frezze in the digital camera.

    Quit surfing the interweb and get your junk ready for River Rock:D . I saw Mike this weekend and everybody is hoping you can make it for our next run. What kind of cooling issues are you having? Mike was saying something about the jeep clubs show being in Ladson at the end of the month. Do you know anything about it?
