Yeah that was scary, the rock smooshed in my passenger door... Now it matches the other panels. Thanks rock.Actually that one was called Down 'n Dirty. I remember because I didn't know anything about it so when we first rolled up to it I was a bit in shock. Especially when I heard you say "this is the one that's kept me up at night" and it was the first real obstacle.
Personally I thought Axle Hill was the most intimidating obstacle.
It's the first time you get a real sense of scale for the obstacles on the trail. Every step is large, and there are more than a few stages to them. I agree that axle hill is the apex of that - two separate strategies employed to get up. Your truck did that one very well.I remember because I didn't know anything about it so when we first rolled up to it I was a bit in shock.

Not even close. You've got the phat block, plenty of crawl, and now you've got the fake front locker trick.I was pretty sure I was biting off more than I could chew on that trail
Same here. I'll be there!Hopefully I can wheel with you again next year.
That's what I said (more than once) while doing a quick scan under the truck this weekend.Thanks rock.
Much better indeed. By the time I went to weld, I was about 80% back to normal, and could see the puddle wetting out clear enough to keep the weld mostly straight. Machining the clamp with double vision was the real trick.Eye must be feeling better?
Or, if not, you weld pretty well for a blind guy...
Man, such a tease. All that goodness and not even one pic?Day 1:
80 miles in dirt up to Mike’s Sky Ranch, max speed 62, average 35, used all the travel, swaybar worked overtime, tires gained more pressure than I’ve ever had (25 to 32), and we ate more tacos.
What a day. Baja is awesome.
