Scared the shit out of me!!!.... I ACTUALLY didn't have enough balls to gas it!!!

Def. planning on getting a full cage. buying a used cheap hood... replacing the my hood with a beat up cheap hood... taking my windshield off... and with the help of a front axle winch I think if I gun it... 50/50 I'm with making it or rolling!!!

Once I get that cage I gotta try it though!!!

Awesome pics!!!! I really like the obstacle in the wash below the entrance to Chocolate Thunder, one of our group flopped there last week and I almost did the same. Lots of tires in the air in your pics, nothing like an "ohh sh!t" moment in the morning to wake you up .

Oleg, for the waterfall on BD; you should get your front wheels up the fall, then hook up your winch to an anchor point and leave the line a little slack. This will stop you from flipping backward if things don't go according to plan. My club uses this technique all the time and it has saved some Jeeps from going backward. YMMV .

I thought about it... but I'm an idiot... having a winch line for me feels weak... it's all or nothing!!!

Looks like an awesome trip!!
I can't imagine anything like that, being from the East Coast. Can't wait to get out that way and try it out. Again, great pics!

Looks like Hundy has lost his nerve. Now playing it safe with a rock buggy instead of taking risks with his JK that earned him his CMF reputation. Getting old is a bitch!
