First run shake down cruise

Hey folks! Its been a while (tooo long a while) since I've been able to post up pics of a run, but the time is right and the time is now!
My JK is clean, pristine, and virginal no longer!

A friend of mine and I ran a medium difficulty trail out in western MA. It was a lot more chewed up than I remember it so the tougher sections were actually much tougher! All in all a really fun day.







Friend took the bypass










More pics to come!

Nice shots! Do you have any problems with the back window hanging open like that while wheeling?? Hummer took the bypass eh?? Well at least he was offroad!!

Don't think too harsh of him for bypassing. When I had my H3 I did that same rock, just took an easier line. He's not too experienced, and like you said, he's off road and thats the key thing.

I didn't notice any issues at all having the window open. I never heard it clank about or anything like that, but if I were in tighter, more wooded trails I think I'd keep it closed, just to be safe.

Great pics Rob! Don't post those "over there". The abuse you would take for wheeling with (god forbid) a Hummer, would be unmerciful. Wish we could have made the trip. Maybe next time.

Holy crap...........500 posts! I gotta get a life.

I wouldn't post "over there" anyway. Eddie would get too butt-hurt that I had unapproved products on my JK.

As for wheeling with Hummers... Well, at least for me its never been about what you wheel, its that you wheel. I like wheeling in mixed company, it adds to the variety and fun. Jeeps, 'Yotas, Land Rovers, Unimogs... it don't matter. Its all gewd!
