Trough Trail on 5-22-2011

I met up with Kevin and Rick just before 11am. We started out to bluebird sky and high 50's. Pretty much a perfect wheeling day. Great meeting you guys.

We avoided any major breaks but did have our minor bumps and bruises. Rick managed to put some dents on his rig, as did Kevin. I managed to scratch some paint on my new fenders, but no damage. I had some funny brakes issues, but managed to make it through. We all got ourselves high centered and turtled at some point. Rick also pulled a tire off its bead. We all drove all the way in and out, (also doing the first spur), and it was a great day of wheeling.

Here are the pics to prove it:

A couple of videos:

Tough to tell, but Rick had his left front wheel almost a foot off the ground at the start of this vid. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qB1ycLjGuS4

It was a great time. Added some new character to the rig. I have a bunch of pics I'll post up in here once I get home from Moab.

Re: Trough Trail on 5-22-2011

Got back last night. What fun!!! Only damage is right rear quarter (plus the drip rail and roof there also), rear bumper (both sides), hatch is cracked, and both rockers are dented a little (the doors won't close without a good slam). When we did Green Day in Moab I had plenty of ground rocker clearance.
