First Trip to Rubicon Pics!!!

Well this was my first trip to the Rubicon and it was awesome. The best wheelin' I've done in my rig yet. Carnage was the passenger side u-joint failure and a cracked driver side mirror. Here are some pics for ya...



Attempting Little Sluice


Probably would have made it thru but a u-joint snap ring decided to let go causing the cap to come off.

Ya I remember you... you're the guy that I talked to for a while about SAS on my Taco out there in that little patch of woods on North Antelope road. I was gonna call you but I lost you're number when I got a new phone. We will have to meet up and wheel sometime.
