Equipment List
  1. Visibly charged fire extinguisher (BC or ABC)
  2. First aid kit
  3. Adequate spare tire, jack and lug wrench
  4. Safety belts for driver and any current passenger
  5. Adequate attachment points in the front and rear of the vehicle:
    1. Acceptable forms of attachment points: (All Items must be mounted in a manner to provide adequate strength and integrity)
    2. Tow hooks of OEM or greater integrity
    3. D-Rings
    4. Shackle/Clevis

number on thing i dont understand:
Why did they not want to hook to my welded on tow hook but they wanted to hook onto my 1/8th inch tube stinger that was welded on and not braced (its not finished yet)
well I'm not trying to start anything here, but if you knew that you're rear bumper was not fit to pull off of why didn't you speak up? you could have put someone in danger by not having the proper setup to run with us. Its up to our tech inspectors (very experienced guys I might add) may have missed something when you got inspected. But it sounds like you weren't fit to run with the group and that a Staff Member kindly pointed out that you didn't fit requirements. Stop whining, rules are rules buddy. Get your jeep up to spec and then you can come out with us.

Would you want a tow hook coming through your window? Lets get this back on track. You live and you learn. If you guys want to join great, if not so be it. This is a great group of guys that would help anyone within reason. Welds can break easier than the bolts used will shear. Both ways are good to mount things when used in the right application.

Why because his Jeep is built right? Other than that D30! But seriously, You don't have to be like that we are trying to help dozer out and you jump in here being all nasty. I may have sounded like a prick in the initial post and I apologize if i did. If you have problems with , don't wheel with us. Doesn't hurt my feelings. Now seriously, Lets get this back on track and forget about this. We are trying to attract members not run them off.

Re: Membership Drive

sorry, please replace REAR with FRONT. still does not change the meaning of my post. What a tech inspector says goes, the same can be said for trail leaders. If they don't feel your rig is adequate enough to wheel with the group than you are done, which is obviously what happened. Hopefully you understand that. That is all.
