    He was Typicle Toby! /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    When the camera's are out he love to show off. He caved in the passenger side rail and almost went over backwards several times and toasted a rear spring.

    Ric,

    I think Matt left off half that story, check out the pics I posted http://coloradok5.com/photos/showphoto.php?photo=3179

    The morning was spent over a few short trails headed to the backside of Twin Buttes. Toby got started on the wall at the spillway, then when we got to the backside, most of us became spectators.

    Matt and Toby picked out a "new" trail, my pic called the Trail. Matt was first up and was doing great until he broke a hub, Toby ran a life line to him and winched him up. Toby was next up and made it close to where Matt did when he got a "little" hung up, as you can see in the pic, a little body damage wasn't a problem, and Matt extended Toby a life line. It was a great day of fun.

    The ram worked great, highway manners very good, and worked like a champ off-road.

    I have a bunch of great pics, but it turns out I wasn't much of a photag when it came to Matt(my son) driving the Jimmy. He got about 4' of air under a front tire as he was coming over a rock ledge and all I could do is stand there and look(actually I was thinking "Oh damn, bring it down easy son!")
