Spring Creek Last Monday

So after a week, I finally have some pictures to show. This was the shake down run to see if this Tcase would hold up for the drive. It did, but screaming the entire way like a banshee. Once we got to the trail head, My Dad and I aired down and unhooked our sway bars, another guy in a LJ on 37s stoped and decided to come with us. The trip went pretty well, was worried about the tcase the entire time, having the deeper gearing was awesome though! I pretty much tried the stupidest lines we could find, and my jeep just worked. My dad was trying to take it easy because "Mom" was upset about him tearing his jeep up. I made my dad take a harder line at the obstacle before the rock garden, and since his MTR W/K didnt hook up, he slid off and scratched his Limited edition wheels (It was actually because I turned around and started walking and wasn't paying attention to him turning down into a valley.... Sorry dad). When we got to the rock garden my dad tried to spot me up the hard side but he couldn't find the right line, so we switched seats. I spotted him up and then he got my jeep high centered on both axles, similar to Garret last year at COFest. I spotted the other LJ through the hard section and then we crawled to the top where we had lunch. My dad really wanted to take the long way down, so we did. Was an awesome trip, and it was the first time for both of the people in our passenger seats. Both of them could not stop asking about what kind of jeep they should buy because they are hooked!

Here are some Highlites:

Re: Spring Creek Last Monday

I ran this last nite with My friend Rick with YJ on 37's ,and my brother John who I let drive after the first obstacle , And spotted him for most of the trail ...putting him everywhere I could to tippy the Jeep ...lol. I put him on the extreme far left of obstacle number 2 ,and had him just stand on it , but a coil popped out , and it made a boom like a busted axle or drive shaft , and his instict was to stop ,which made for some fun getting the coil back in since when he stopped he slid back and was a little stuck on the 14 bolt and the coil was stuck in the mix beating up my brake line/shock , and we still needed to bring the driver tire up on the far left rock again to flex enough to even try to reseat the coil without completely destroying the brake line ...But it was cool to watch him nearly roll and never ask to get out of the drivers seat ...

I got to get the gas tank replaced/ trap front coils/ put on the trans coolers/get very leaky ports on psc box fixed ...should have all the important stuff done next weekend ... So I'll hit you up then ... The trans coolers are a must that trail is a constant climb ,and my ATF is no longer even remotely red after the run the 2.72 stock low range an 40's is just a tad tall on the long climb as well ( I smell Atlas round the close corner) ...My aux fan is shot as well ,so I'm eye-balling the the fancy tripple electric fan set up I've seen on here awhile ago .

Re: Spring Creek Last Monday

Glad to hear the t-case didn't explode. So how bad is it on the street? Does your stereo suffice in covering it up or are your ears bleeding?

Re: Spring Creek Last Monday

Below 40MPH it is pretty loud, if I keep the 10" sub bumping, I can only here a slight sound.
Me on the Slab
Matt on the Slab
Little wheelie

Re: Spring Creek Last Monday

Jeep looks good. The case didnt seem too loud.

Why's no one take the left line on the slab or really far right line on the obsticle in your last video...

Re: Spring Creek Last Monday

I think the line on the slab looks better because I usually pop a wheelie ( Small example ) . The line on the right IMO is not as hard as the line I took, but could be wrong.
Mike, come with us next time and show me your lines so I can try em!

The case doesn't make the noise in 4low because that's when the planetary is getting power, it makes the noise when in idle IE: when driving around town when you don't want to make bad noises.

Re: Spring Creek Last Monday

I could be wrong, its been a year since i have been up there. just seems like the far left line gets pretty tippy and slick as compared to the right. But you have been up there more than me

Re: Spring Creek Last Monday

I personally liked the left line on the garden. Haven't been up there this season. Guess we will have to get a run planned out.

Where you went in the rock garden was a killer line. im talking left line on the big slab or whatever. then on the turn where everyone said you were gonna flop to go even further right....
