I MADE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! took quite a few tries (damn sra's)



it was a good trip. hot as f*ck!! but a good day. glad no major breaks or roll overs happened and im glad we got grumpy off the trail. i was loosing hope after a while.
also, the rock krawler 3.5 inch kit kicks ass. i took all of the hardest lines and tried the hardest obstacles and was able to do all of them

Looks like a good day.

Even better with no major carnage.

Time to get some beef under your rig to help make it easier to get over some of those things.

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

Looks like you had a blast! Heading down there with GLJT this coming weekend and can't wait to test the JK's might. No grumpy astro vans allowed, though......

2010 Jeep Wrangler 2dr Rubicon with a part from everyone...

Hey ms5490renegade good to see you over here too. October run? The Coal Creek run or another that I don't know about?

One of the users on GLJT happened to see you guys out there this past weekend and got some vid of Grumpy playing in the rock quarry.
