I went wheelin with my brother on the con a couple weeks ago and learned some valuable information.
1. A full size peg will not fit into a Jeep size hole.
2. I'm no longer afraid of body damage.
3. Its not a dent, its a hug from the trail, see #2.
4. Can't take my eyes off my kid brother for a moment.
5. Sliders and lockers are a good things.

Now on with some pics

Day 2

Day 2
We didn't get ane more than a quqrter mile before the bent drag link on the F250 became a problem again, so we had to stop in the middle of the trail to fix it fortunatly there was not any trafic.
[/IMG]
The veiw of the lake was great though
[/IMG]
then came on this slick one no damage for me (Bronco) but the F250 did donate to the rocks on the right
[/IMG]
then after lunch it was on to Big Sluce
only got a little tippy on the 1st turn
[/IMG]
down the sluce
[/IMG]
little further it gets tighter
[/IMG]
then some more donated paint from both trucks at the rigth rear fender lip
[/IMG]
after building part of a road on Sluce it was on to the bridge and the springs
[/IMG]
untill we saw this jeep sized hole
[/IMG]
figured that there was no was so we found a way around it. After picking the low road with the bronco my brother decided to take the high line so as not to have to jocky the rig andd stress the bent drag link and woops
[/IMG]
some wiching and draging and we had it rubber side down again in about 20 mins.
[/IMG]
by this time rubicon springs was a sight for sore eyes
camp at the springs

How did those H1 tires do on the rocks?
both rigs were running H1's mine (Bronco) had the old 36s and did great, but did have some chunking. The side walls seem to be tougher than nails too. The F250 was running the newer 37s which are raidials and he cut the sidewall on a rock the 1st day out.

Great news, I got the older 36's now but plan to go with the 37s because they are radials. Havent wheeled my 36s so I was wondering how they were.
Just watch the side walls on the 37s and have a spare just in case, especialy when aired down.

Very nice pics. Did your brother have a build up on here as well? It seems like I recognize the truck.
He didn't have a build up here, but did have some updates in my build up since the cab was from my doner truck. He dose have a build thread on UC4x4 though
Bad a$$ Bronco. I like it.
Thanks I do too, but I'm biased :beer
