I finally got my junk out on the trails folks. I went to Gilbert ORV in northern Minnesota with a couple of guys I met on a Minnesota Jeep (yeah yeah) forum. Everything worked well save for a little carnage and minor malfunctions. My hydro assist was leaking pretty good by the end of the weekend, one of my body mounts pulled through and caused the fan and the fan shroud to tear each other apart when the right front corner was at max. droop, I creased both doors, lost the glass on my driver's side mirror, creased the passenger side bedside, ripped off my muffler....I think that's it. My build plans for the rig have also changed because of this trip. It had plenty of flex to keep up with a very flexy TJ so the 52 swap is out. I am however going to bring the rear down two inches and get some better riding springs in front. Also, my breakover angle had me worried the entire weekend so that's gonna get worked on as well as a beefy front diff. cover because I pushed it into a few rocks and had I been a little bit crazier with the throttle I def. would have punctured mine. Also, I'd like to thank (most) of the people that contributed to this build: Kert at DIY4X (Kert, take a look at this thread and let me know what you think.) Stephen Watson and the whole crew at ORD Black Mesa Offroad Brian Filtingberger (Muddog) Brian Wise (Bozowise) Gabe (Bowtie) And last but not least, every other CK5 member who has given me advice at some point in the build. Without this site I'd be lost. Ok Ok, you don't care you just wanna see pictures well here ya go: Me getting screwed up on Lone Pine, biffing the line, and getting jammed up: Posing in Gumby's Rocks, I discovered from the picture that my muffler was gone at or before this point in time, I'm pretty sure Tabletop took it but we combed the park on Sunday and never found it: Just posing at a midway point in the gorge, all the H2 owners were going nuts: One of the H2 guys asked me to stop and pose in the gorge, Mike took advantage of the photo op. Forget which trail this was, not too challenging but pretty tight in some spots We found a small play area and I decided to come at this from the back side. I'm getting out because I jammed the left rear rim into a rock and the only way out is throttle: Coming over the top: Scenery shots: The aftermath: There are a few other pics from the weekend in my photobucket album. It was a blast and I hope to do it again in spring sometime. Once again, thanks to Steve Fox, and all the CK5 members for helping me along with this build.
