FL test run

Headed out with the FL JK crew for a good day and ended up at the local off road park (Hardrock in Ocala). Here are a couple of poser pics of me testing the Poly lift.






The poly lift worked great. There were only two challenges we didn't crush, but that was me being a wuss (trying to avoid body damage and busting a shaft). I probably could have made it if I would just man up and hit the gas.


At the end of the day there was a roll, but everyone appeared to be ok...except the jeep.





As bad as it was, everyone walked away. Thank god and I wish the best for our brothers from miami.

Like that 1st pic...good flex shot!

What was up with the roll? Did he do it on one of the hills? Looked like it was a nice CJ.

What Moose said. If you go past the rock garden and get to where you have to due a U-turn to go up the tall tiered hill, it was there. They said he rolled twice and there were conflicting stories as to what happened. I was making the uturn when it happend, so I didn't see it.

Moose any more details on the two guys?

Really makes you want a real roll cage. and possible a hood loop.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's not a difficult hill. Wonder how he rolled it. Odd. Glad nobody got hurt.
