Most of the Heep owners I've encountered are more open-minded, but I wheel with a diverse group to begin with - several Land Rover guys. It was actually the early Bronco owners who gave me the cold shoulder one year at OCBR, even though the event organizers welcomed me.
There's been 8-12 rigs in years past that I attended but numbers have dwindled.

UPDATE

UPDATE:

Bumper 2.0 is completed and hydro assist added. Added a CB and LiftedFords fab'd up a quick little spare tire mount stop for me. Proto Fab's rear bumper doesn't come with one. I'm just going to post up the pics and let them do the talking. Also, just got back for James Duff's Ford Fall Crawl Event. Coverage is in the trips section.

New goodies to be installed. PSC hydro, new Smittybilt 10k winch w/ synthetic rope and Factor55 prolink.





Old busted bumper next to new one for template and mockup of new winch.

After powdercoating and a little additional trimming to ensure no tire interference (reason for first bumper's demise). Finished product.




Now on to hydro assist. Used a stock trans fluid cooler for a PS fluid cooler. This is 3rd one of these that I have on the Bronco. These things are the perfect size and cheap.





Had to cut and move my trac bar over. Here is a few pics of LiftedFords burning it in.

Here is the hinge stop






And just a few flexing on the trailer before loading it up to head out to James Duff's event. Good shots of the finished bumper also.

James Duff's Ford Fall Crawl Event-Windrock Coverage

Didn't have a passenger with me this time so I didn't get to snap alot of pics. But since this section has been dead for a while I figured I'd post up what little I do have. There are more pics/videos supposedly on James Duff/Suzy Duff/Michael Duff's Facebook page.


Thursday night was James Duff's open house. Just a few pics of the facility. I took a bunch of the arms naturally.

JD gave everyone who registered and attended a YETI style roadie that was powder coated. Good people over there. I even got to meet the "James Duff". A very humble guy who was willing to chat with me about my measly fullsize.





A few pics of the scenery on the way up the mountains....

Tore off both rear calipers on that trail and spent about 2 hours collectively on the trail that day trying to pull the calipers and tie them up on the leafs without crimping the line. Ran to Advance to score some new pads, rotors, and calipers. Spent the night repairing it so I could ride Saturday. Someone snapped this pic....




Found a gnarly v-notch on Saturday....

Rode a bit more on Sunday before I headed back but no pics. The wife of the BII took a few videos. Nothing crazy, mostly some scenic trails although we did run gatekeeper.

I didn't know where to post the wheeling pics other than my build thread. I've never seen such a place on pirate. Anyway, thats all I have from the trip.

Went on our annual RITS 2017 run with my FSB forum to Windrock. I love this place. I didnt many pics. I have a few videos on photobucket that need to be transferred to YouTube but here's what I have.

We also linked up with 3 other guys. One in an EB sas/d B2 with a 302, a 4'linked LUBR on 33's, and a Toyota setup for overlanding (he also owns an EB in the build phase). All guys made the trip awesome with pics, navigation, spotting, and camaraderie. The Jeep is the sister of the owner of the Toyota.





Some epics pics of the scenery, compliments of Josh (Toyota Owner)



Lifted Fords and I on the way to the staging area after leaving the general store to meetup and air down.

Camp (just for Pat)


Everyone helping out the B2 with nasty hub failure Friday night....


Random pic just down from the windmills




So those are from just 2 trails. Unfortunately I didn't get any more from Saturday. Too busy wheeling and having fun I guess.

I've noticed this more and more with myself as well. Great pics, and that is a pretty bad ass little B2

Yeah, its well built with a 302, 435, 205, 37 Rockers, ARB's, but its on EB axles and has a 3" BL so he's pretty tall and can get tippy on some sections. He's being persuaded to go to full-widths. He likes the BL so thats out of the question.
