Hokie man I always need help :) Right now I just need $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

SAS, ARB, gears, brakes, wheels, coilovers, etc etc etc long arm kit = expensive Might be a while.
I may have to patch the BII back together just to get me by until I can collect all the parts.

FC is a little over an hour from me, but there are some great lakes and trails between here and there :)

Ha! Money is the one thing I WON'T have for the next 2 years. It'll suck living in CO with a perfectly capable tow rig and not having the funds to tow a small 4x4 toy behind it

I was a Diesel powered Subaru, full exo cage, winches front and rear. Dick Ceepeck 37"s (or so) Super duper metallic paint everywhere!

Yep... it said it was a Forester H6. I wonder if the Russians that were driving in it were mad when I said Crazy Ivan ?! :D :p: :rolleyes: to Ivan.

:rolleyes: Damn'dest thing; it had an ARB front bumper. I think the tires were like 325 xx FC II's, with regular CO. registration. And all they'd say about it is you can't buy a rig like that, you've gotta build it. :rolleyes: Pretty cool though.



:thumbsup: I'm glad you all got back safe Gerald... it was nice wheelin' with ya and I appreciate (the aforementioned) tour guide stewardship. :D Ivan's a trip, I hope he had fun... and got some cool photos to school his class about what Moab has to offer :cool: .

That's just farkin funny right there :D

Can I nominate Msupertek, Lt, Matt & Jimmy for the Fakrwee tribe since none of them could figure out how to get us out of Steelbender until midnight? ;) :D

That's funny just to prepare you I don't think I have ever been un-lost:D Don't follow me you'll never know what might happen.

Msupertek + Trail = 100% success or 100% Broke :D

Spas- When i get back to school on monday i'll send you mine.

I agree at how cool it is to see what an 'almost' stock explorer is capable of. I still can't believe I broke... but I guess after 6 years I was due for something. Plus given how cool everyone was with the help they gave; I know how to fix one now.

No problem about the pics Jeff... thank you and your buddy for the disc of pics as well. We'll have to meet up and wheel local :thumbsup:

:biggthump The whole trip went by like a blur. (No I wasn't drinking):D Saw a lot of old friends and met some new ones. On friday my cousin Ralph and I decided to rent a jeep instead taking my Suzuki 4X4 XL-7 on the trail. Best decision we made all week.

On Friday we did Klondike Bluff and Arches. I was a little aprehensive about going tippy after my "Incident", but everything went well. Until Mounteneer green who was in front of us decided to get tippy going down hill. My heart stopped as he started to go over, I jumped out of the jeep and got up on the runnung board to get him down. The look on his and his wife's face was pure panic. I talked him into turning into the tip instead of away and all ended well.

Saturday we did Iron Flat Mesa which was great, just enough obstacles to grab you're attention and more than enough scenery to last a life time. Had a couple of moderate scares but nothing dangerous. Met up with some Russian Asshmoles:rolleyes: who were driving a decked out rig. I'll try and post a picture.

Sunday we did Poison Spider Trail which was the most technical and the most fun. Josh entertained us by taking the hardest and craziest lines. He had a great spotter, Dot, his mom. They were a pleasure to watch as they went up and down the hardest lines.:notworthy Made us feel like fools being beat by a mom and her young son:eek:

Geralds dog Durango went in front of Gerald spotting him and did a good job, now if we can only teach the dog how to read the GPS we might have a back up trail boss when our's breaks down.:crazy:

My radioman the whole trip was Ivan who kept us informed of what was happening up front all the time. Ivan you were worth 2 frozen snickers not just one, I owe you one buddy.

And Ashlix, I not only wore my boots but even had a walking stick.:D

Anyway just another trip in off roading paradise.:chug:




russians trying to test their lunar vehicles? and what exactly is the point of that hood scoop if it doesnot function....obviously there is a snorkel

And yes, pritchett is a rated 5 ,
