    Ooooppps!
    hahah Oh well..been wheelin this truck sence 93 so it was bound to happen someday. The story is I was trying to straddel the washout instead of hugging that tree next to the trail...well my rear pass slid into the washout and threw the drivers side front up and then the whole truck slamed down on the frontclip & pass door due to the downhill...
    Some say driver error :o or taken the hardline with a little bad luck :doah:
    You choose....
    Here is the thread with more pics>>>

    hahahah I have itchey spots too :doah:

    No, I think the silly is fried. Somehow one of the winch motor power cables came loose wich then arced when I tried to reel in the cable. I am guessing this arc took out a silly pack...guess I get to lear how to r&r one of thoes sillys now:doah:
    Thanks again for running around the mountain to pull me straight :D

    Well, glad to see from the other pics that damage isn't too bad. Did your passenger door glass survive? Sure looks like a blast out there!

    Ya it realy isn't all that bad...the door doesn't work so well..but the glass is still there. My window frame is slightly bent now too...
    I think I will just leave it with the battle scars for now :eek1: atleast until after the Moab trip...then winter will be here so who knows what will happen...:rolleyes:

    If the hood was down you could see it better...the mirror pushed the sheet metal of the door inward and so did the door handel..

    :rotfl: :wink1: :crazy:


    It doesn't even look like it got the rear quarter panel did it?

    Yup after i flopped mine it was a downhill snowball from there, that kind of made the decision for me to get more hardcore with my truck...
    I was trying to keep the body clean but started wheeling more and more.. After the passanger side got smashed i figured i might as well start having some fun on the harder trails before i replace the body. But the more dents i put in the truck, the more i wish i had my cherry poser blazer back from 5 years ago..
    The front fenders and doors are easy enough to get ahold of, but the rear blazer quarter panels are hard to find or like $500 a side for reproduction sheetmetal. :crazy: I got my body panels off k5's that were being parted out.

    Ya it just bairly touched the rear..I think the downhill kept the truck on the frontclip & door.

    I am already thinking of harder trails....buttttt I still only have a D44 stuffed with all the goodies so I still have to stay off the Triple Black Diamond trails :eek1:
    Moab is gonna ROCK!!!
    Oh shister, I gotta get all my broken stuff fixed....:doah: I'm thinking RATTLECAN time for the rig too :D
