On that same trail (Crown King) from February of this year I was had some problems … Here are a couple of vids one from the GoPro, and one from a cell phone of me breaking my double cardan and turns out the third member on my rearend…. I think it was from Axle Wrap

If you have a large screen, and really want to see what just some of Moab looks like Here is a video that no one has seen. Although I’m pretty much following @itwasFREE!!!! The views and landscapes are breathtaking. A little bit of Pink Floyd doesn’t hurt either !!! The actual video is only a few minutes but I kept it going in case you wanted to finish listening to the song lol

I have used it maybe half a dozen times since FOTM and right now it's sitting in the garage with the 37's on it and the snow plow. Tomorrows forecast is for 6" of the white stuff and it needs to be ready. Had I finished it six months earlier, I may have had a lot more to add, hopefully in the spring I can get it back apart and wrapped up by the end of summer. I also left for 10 days for vacation and tried to get some meat in the freezer in between. No excuses, other than life and work.
I really didn't want to rehash the build/FOTM thread, especially since it was the last run. That being said, I consider it an honor to even be a part of this competition and I apologize I didn't have anything else/new to bring to the table. Good luck all!

I cant speak for everyone else but,
I would Love to see some pics of that "Sweet @$$'d Rig" in action Pushing some snow around.....

Last time it snowed at my house enough to warrant a picture was Jan 2014.


Yesterday and through the night we ended up with about 6" on the grass. I don't ever remember the white stuff this early in dec

As much as I would love to oblige, I 'm ready to push some rain. Snow still hasn't amounted to much. That being said, it really looks freakin ridiculous with 37's on it.



When I was fourteen years old, I was amazed at how unintelligent my father was. By the time I turned twenty-one, I was astounded at how much he had learned in the last seven years

Random picture.

Went to Rausch again with some new friends just a couple months ago.



More tire flex..




I ended up ripping off a rear shock and slightly bending one of my cage radius arms. You can see the bend here..

I had to put a bend in the Dipstick tube that came with the Oil pan to clear the Shorty headers:









I had some help from several members here and from the club stop by for this undertaking which was very awesome.

Here we are taking the old out. Keep in mind this is summertime in Arizona so each day is over 100 Degrees. So I set up a cover that I strapped toe the BKO







I also got the go ahead to get a large cooler for the garage. I have a similar one in the back that dose a great job here. The air being so dry these things do wonders.












Lets get this sucker pulled













HA !!!!!!!! @CainsBigRed







While I had the motor out I went ahead and re-routed some wiring of stuff I had added like lights and such but had been on the need to get done list for awhile that never seemed to get done.









And everything is out:













Back in Moab I tell you these guys really worked there butt’s off to get me up this hill … I really didn’t realize it until watching videos. Here are a few more pictures

Here is a video from the same Kane Creek Canyon hill from. The guy directing I didn’t know but was an absolute pro. The guy in the stuck Jeep stayed to help make sure all of us got through.. He said it would have taken him days to get up without the help we all gave him.

Part 1







And here is part 2, This is where I get the driver side rear quarter

And then the same hill from the GoPro mounted on top of my Winch … it’s a very detailed video. It goes all the way up to the point I had a problem getting through.







and then Part 2 of what was done for me to get through the hardest part…. I do want to do this trail again now with an automatic, and 35” tires, steering ram, hydraboost brakes and more importantly a little more experience. I’m Sure the trail has changed from a year a ago but thought it kicked my butt and need to do it again

Remco - Oh so you have engine and tranny rebuild already. And you have the Punisher valve body – all the good stuff. That makes sense. Going out on such a long trip solo with old engine and transmission would be very risky. Cool. Keep the pictures and video coming, hopefully people here will recognize the amount of work and money you put into it and you going to win. You deserve that. Milan

Thanks dragon, much appreciated. I do, however, prefer this look, it's just not practical in the snow:

This was one of the greatest camper-friendly modification we did on our Bronco. Swivel passenger seat console...
