Just got back we ran poison spider, 7mile rim, fins n things and hells revenge twice. I took the bronco up the escalator. I needed to be winched about 10 inches and I received no body damage. Here are the first of many pics my wife is getting them on the computer. We met a guy at the hotel ended up being real cool and took us out the first day on hells revenge he also let me take my wife through mickeys hot tub on this. power shot on find n things another on poison spider I'll throw some more up shortly

I built them out of a snowboard rack. I shortened the gutter mounts so they hug the roof lines.

I dont have a rear locker so I needed to be winched about a ft to get up the second hill.

It was a blast. I didn't see one other bronco there so I was definitely the odd man out. There were a lot of people surprised with what I was able to do with only a front locker and 35's.

Nice pictures. I think maybe next year i want to road trip my bronco out to Moab. Maybe see if we can get a group together. Probably stick to moderate trails since i'm driving mine 2500 miles.

I was surprised at how well the bronco did for 4 straight days of wheeling the only problems I ended up with was a front U joint failure and a leaking front pinion seal. Both of which have been the same since I did the solid axle swap almost 11 years ago. I for sure that I took out my whole passenger side of the bronco on the escalator but went through it without a scratch the bumper took the majority of the carnage. The slick rock out there is definitely interesting. Here are some more pics....

yup we may head out for that next year. However there are a few things on my list to add to the bronco before.

Here is poison spider.
