Unfortunately because of the snow and lack of work that had gotten done the last 2 days my work has instituted mandatory overtime tomorrow to make up for lost time. So instead of heading to jersey, I will be heading to work tomorrow morning. Hope you guys have a blast and don't break nothing.

Dan

SO if I'm tracking correctly, the updated list is:

hunterdan - not wheeling, but down for the meet and greet session
SuRrEaLNJ - wheeling
dreddog47 - wheeling/96 bronco on 35's
tgreene92 - 2nd gen on 31's
LiKuiD - 94 on 33's
bstarz65 - wheeling 97 on 31's
SuddenDeath - Jeep Grand Wagoneer
Paraphoe - 97 on 33's (might as well be stock) J/K
924dr4x4
explorerguy89 - wheeling

Glen4X4 - possible
CALDWELL - possibly wheeling 3rd Gen
00meangreenXLT - stock 2000 V8



I separated Glen, CALDWELL and 00mean because they're on the fence or haven't replied to the thread in a long time, so I wouldn't count on them.

Looks like we're down to 9 trucks and 10 guys if John comes.

He will be there, he is part of our convoy including me, LiKuiD

Got it. Sounds good. So we lost Dan, but gained another truck. 10 trucks. I'll be leaving in about 30-40 minutes, should be there at 10:00, give or take 10 minutes.

Had a blast out there today. I left after the first half of the day and the rest of the group went back out for more. Haven't heard from any of them yet, so I'm assuming they stayed out a LONG time or are still thawing. Below are some of my pics.

It really was a great time, the tree branches across the trails were kind of annoying - a lot of trees were bowed because of the snow weight and were beating the piss out of our roof racks, but it wasn't too bad.

Of COURSE, I was the only guy to get REALLY stuck. Happened in a big mud & ice pit. For some reason tgreene got through without an issue on his 31s, so I figured I could handle it - no such luck. And it look Jay with his beast to finally pull me out after 2 other failed attempts with 3 other trucks.

All in all though, an awesome time. No one broke anything (while I was there) and everyone was really cool.

I think the camber might just be the angle of the camera? I don't think it's that bad. I DO need an alignment, though.

And as for the stuck pics, I was inside the vehicle, but just wait for the others to upload, I'm sure they won't let me live that down (looking at you, Jay). :rolleyes: :D

We headed back to wawa, and upon entering the road, this thing came FLYING down the road approaching us, then we all got stuck behind him

This is the worst carnage I had, one of my HID bulbs fell out of my housing and melted, and destroyed the housing from smoke damage... lifetime warranty will be put to use come Monday
