Hmm, I missed this thread somehow.

Anyway here's my meager addition. Installed an XJ D44 with 4.56's and a Detroit. Front is a stock D30 with a TruTrac. Suspension is a SOA up front and a SUA out back. Lots of little things added. Don't have time to wheel it much anymore.

This is Nicole.

She is a fairly new driver and kinda got herself in a pickle.
Her rig is a bit "tire Challenged" for this trail. We slid her off the hill above where she is now and rather than hit the brake she hit the gas.
Little mistakes magnify quickly under these conditions. She is very lucky to have kept the rig from a mud bath.





This is Aaron and Ally.
Aaron and his wife adopted Ally from Guatamala. Ally is funny and cute as a button. She was singing and repeating everything said all day.
She is a precious gift.


What a trooper

I always crank this song when I first head into a trail with the group.
It's a tradition.

But you gotta turn the music on.

I'm not askin. I'm tellin...

Here's Mike.

You might look at these machines and think, well they are not brand new.
They look like old hunks of metal.
Most of these owners of these rigs know every nut an bolt on them.
They are fine tuned to do exactly what you see here.











While I try to capture the flavor of what this actually looks like, it's very hard to see what the terrain looks like.
You don't take your average jeep thru this stuff without severre body damage.
Nor your average driver.




Dig?




















More later...

My last real Jeep. After blowing up the stupid Pontiac 4 banger THREE times, I got fed up and slapped a high output 5.0l V8 in the old CJ5. After that it needed the welded in full rollcage. The thing was stupid fast. With all that power the four speed became a two speed with a couple of extra low gears. I still have the Warn winch off that Jeep. But have never bothered to put it on my Cherokee. My beloved old CJ5 on the job surveying some wetlands back in the 80's:



Now I am just abusing my battered but utterly reliable '97 Cherokee Sport. Not quite the unstoppable force of nature that my 300hp CJ5 was, but it gets the job done. And it carries all my GPS crap better, has A/C and still refuses to leave me stuck in the woods. Sorry about the lousy cell phone in the rain pic, but this is my current Jeep on the job sitting on the only high spot in the cypress swamp and once again surveying some wetlands:

Looks like your buddy needs some practice..

Great stuff, thank you for posting those videos. I really need to learn how to do that.
