Hmmm yea we never really ventured south of the vendor area we were always taking the sand hwy towards Oldsmobile hill and out that way.

Well c'mon Mounty let's go:D
 












oh yeah, im sure you can tell from the pics, but we didn't have ramps for the tow dolly, so we high-lift jacked the jeep on both sides to get the wheels off the ground and then moved the dolly underneath it.

just wanted to add a little note, all the jumps, and even the biggest one, didn't bottum out that hard. sure it bounced, but it didn't hit as hard as going to fast nose diving through whoops.
 






Coil Buckets for sale on here RJ;) and there in San Diego
 






thanks for the link cybar :p:
 






hahaha LOL ahhhh kids these days :D
 












Black Goblin when you had the big red bumper on the X did you have any clearance issue with the steering? Got the bumper on today and it look awful damn close on the steering. In fact i believe the steering is hitting on the skid plate.

The steering was pretty close on the explorer, but it didn't hit it. BTW, i forgot to ask but since you can't use the front swaybar anymore, could i get those swaybar drop brackets you have?
 






Oh yea no problem need just the brackets or the whole sway bar?

The sway bar I gave you already has drop brackets on it.:rolleyes:

And no it wont hit Dave I trimmed it so it wouldn't.;)
 






Alright Dave, apparently i don't need those drop brackets :D. Thanks anyway.

Amazing pics! That's a lot of punishment on the trucks but looks like they held up well.

Ya, i've been thinking about how the truck did after the weekend, and i'm kinda regretting driving it that hard on its first trip. :(
 






mounty, is your car running start running bad after Glamis? im actually surprised how well the navajo still drives after the beating it got all weekend :p: can't wait till next time, cause every time i break something, i always try to upgrade it.

i don't think you need sway bar drop brackets for the front, just flip the sway bar so the curve points downward. thats how the bronco is and thats how i ran the navajo. worked fine.
