    Next part of the trail. We herd voices and went to check it out. It was 2 buggies and one of them broke a 44 spindle and sent someone to town to get a replacement so I had to back out:(

    My buddies cj7 turning around. He broke a dana 30 u-joint on this 16 pt. turn. He should have just backed out like I did, well I could not have turned around if I wanted to anyway.

    We did not get any stills of the mini rubicon, just video. We both made it all the way thru, but the Jeep broke the pass side u-joint towards the end we fixed it at camp later that night.

    The mud pit was my biggest whoops. There were ablut 30 rigs looking but no one dooing so I went for it made it a few car lenghts when the eng died and that is when the water really started rushing in. Was over the center hump and just a little deeper than the bed in the back. Got yanked out, pulled the plugs turned it over a few times, installed plugs and drove the rest of the day and all the way home (4hours) the next day with no issues. I took my snorkel off to paint the hood/front clip and never put it back on. Good thing I had the breather tubes all hooked up. I did get h20 in the engine but the oil never went milkshake. I changed it anyway when I got home.

    Off the wall question, but how big is that tarp you're using. I want to do the same thing with my p/u but am too lazy to go measure it. :truck:

    I am pretty sure the tarp is 12x16.
