    Glad you guys had fun. I second the pics vote. How did the buggy work with those TSL AT's that you run. How much more confident was rob with the superior CTM design... Come on don't hold back I was sittin' around today wishin' I was there. /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    those TSL AT's

    /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif..... Those TSL AT's aren't worth diddly! I never should have (listened to Rob and...) bought them. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    The New Mexico rocks were a little more slippery than our typical Az ones. I found traction to be a little elusive /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif...

    After all I've seen, I think the next set of tires I buy may be MTR's. They seem to do the best in almost all types of terrain.

    Break report: /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    Marv:
    1 stock front D44 inner
    rear D60 diff cover
    frame crack @ steering box

    Danny:
    rear driveshaft

    Rob:
    nuthin.... /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    Ryan:
    front shackle bolt (where's Matt when you need him... /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif)

    We had a damn good time!.... Rob was much more confident... In fact, Confucious (sp?) would say that Rob has hands in pocket - and feels cocky!/forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Rob didn't break anything, but he was the first one there when someone did. Let's just say the cromos and ctm's "got it" Believe it or not I don't think anyone got pictures. I know rob got some video, but that was it.

    I took standard pictures(forgot the digi cam, I = dummy). i pic them up tonight and will try to scan them and post them. But danny is right, Rob is great. Anytime one of us broke he was there with a part(front shackle bolt in less than 10 seconds) or tools to help. I will have to say that Rob and Marv a great people to go wheeling with. They prodded me into putting my crewcab concoction in places i didn't think it would go. And Rob did get blamed for the AT's several times over the weekend.

    Ha, a shackle bolt... go figure /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif. My second run with rob required a few bolts from his collection and some drilling. He was so non-shelont (sp) about it, that is where he gained my respect. Then marv told me more about him and I don't know anymore (rob j/k /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif)
