Wheeler Lake 8/14

It was a great day out with some of the XJ boys again. Interesting to say the least. PNW.XJ had to work in Breck at 5, and everyone was telling him before the trip he would be back in time. Well, I hope you made it back man. We had a TJ snap a rear lower control arm at the top, and had to bandaid it with ratchet straps and just creep down the trail. Surprisingly there was very little traffic on the trail. We only ran into 4 rigs all day.

I think the most intersting pic of the days goes to PNW.XJ hands down. He did the largest wheel stand I have ever seen! AT 6' tall, I had to reach for the bottom of his rim above my head, to pull him down. When you see the pics, you are gonna think "wow that guy flopped". But nope, just 3 wheelin it.

Re: Wheeler Lake 8/14

I have no clue how you guys pull so many pictures with a wheel in the air! I have only ever seen one tire go in the air over a foot on wheeler lake besides Chris at cofest 2010. This trail is on my to do list for this year, so as soon as my jeep is ready to go, you both are doing it again with me.

Harder lines? I am pretty sure David ran Penrose with 33's, a blown steering box, and a smoked clutch!

That's what mom is for dude! She just snaps pics all day. I see plenty of tires rise on lots of trails, I just never catch it on camera as I am always jumping on the rig to pull it down lol.
