Sweet vids. That last video,perfect example of why my next investment will be some sliders.....it made a nice noise on the sliders instead of the body.

Definitely a good investment... If you know someone who can weld, go the route I did. I bought the sliders off the forum (Rubi Sliders) for $150 shipped then welded the step on. Total out of pocket was $200.00.

Our second run up Radical Ravine, I dropped it hard on the slider coming up the first ledge.. hard enough that both Chad and Kelly turned around to make sure I didnt snap a shaft.

My dad is closing his lawnmower shop down after 40+ years and he has a nice welding set up that needs a new home. It may be over 30 years itself but those are the best, well tested. I guess I need to clean out a spot in the garage and start practicing,with his supervision of course.

Some of us have to work a little but harder for it... no front locker and all.

Every time I go wheelin this vehicle surprises me in some way. Trails that I never though I would take, lines I never thought the Jeep could handle. As usual the videos dont alway do justice to the incline through these trails.

the sad part is, it will be probably another 2 -3 month before I get to go again

Dang you made Radical Revine look easy in that last video! It is even hard to walk up! Looks like if we would have made it out, we would have done a lot of sitting and watching. Some of those trails are crazy!
