That was my thought. Jimny's 20 was beat to hell, but my, oh my, could that thing WHEEL!!!
The above is my opinion. It is subject (like all my opinions) to debate, disagreement, rude gestures, and loud raspberries.

WHAT!!?? You do know the physics of a locked rearend right? Do you think he could have made it up the hill that everyone else turned around and didn't even try? Except for Sancho and he had the rear locked but he gave up after the one try. I would have never tempted that hill if I didn't have the rear locked. NO WAY!


If you are trying to say that Wilson is a great rig, well you are right. It has everything mine has (less the dents, scrapes, etc etc) other then some welded pieces in the rearend. Now if he had the rearend welded it could have gone everyplace I did.

Oh yeah the crack has great traction because it is solid rock, thats just for wide tracks which we don't have so the only way up it in an LJ is on it's side scraping all the way. If you try and straddle it and the right side goes down it is a hell of a pinch, you have to back out of it and try again. That is the place that Ranger got a lot of his damage.


I am moving part of these posts to another section. We took over opossum's thread. Sorry Opossum.

Now we know why, with his brakes gone out.

The funny thing was when I tried it the first time and I had to pump my brakes once but in that split second of pumping the brakes Tweeder and I was coming off that hill backward extremely fast (it was a STEEP hill) and I was looking back and all I could see was EVERYBODY running for their lives! LOL but by then I had the second pump and was stopping it before I hit the "Sancho Tree".

I think all I heard from Tweeder as we were going backward down that hill was the F word. I think he heard the brake pedal hitting the floor.

Good. I was starting to feel bad about the hijack.
