"Just for the record"........Forget about fancy hotels, 20 people crew, 7 new Chrysler rigs (between the JK´s and support vehicles), and a pretty big budget......Gonzalo built his Samurai with his own hands and tools, blew up one engine trying to right tune the supercharger, he was there ONLY with his spotter.
The budget came from his pocket & a couple of dollars from the company where he works.
This was a "fight" between David & Golliat.....where David kicked Golliat ASS
Bad ass! As much as that "only in a jeep" thread made me want to puke, THIS is what its all about. Congrats!

NOW I know what the supercharger was for - I thought you just liked wheeling at 14-15k ft - I didn't know you were going for a record! That's awesome!

It looks like PBB dropped the ball big-time on this opportunity for worldwide exposure. Probably too busy spending the PBB income on new toys...

That's killer!!! Just shows ya what brains over money gets ya! Well Done fellas!!! How did you sort out the fuel situation??? I'm sure you logged all the miles. I take it that you didn't have any political roadblocks that would stop the attempt??? I know it would be a cold day in hell for anyone in the states to try something like that, Oh and we need the dirt a bit higher too! LOL

Well that record sure lasted a long time for Jeep

Good job doing the trip without other trucks or "support crew". That is how a real wheeling trip should be done. I wish I could make an attempt some day.

Did you make it to the definitive top of that peak to ensure this guy who just continually betters his records by a few hundred feet in a different car every year?

Congrats to you and your team. Thanks for beating the shit out of another shitty Jeep retard sales pitch. I hated it, just a publicity stunt like the retarded shit WARN pulls in Antartica or the north pole or something trying to prove the winch works when its cold.

Only thing that sucks is the fact the Jeeps where almost stock, and well I get the idea that your vehicle is far from it.

Either way I bow down to you and your group, some big o balls for sure for just you and your spotter to make the trip. For you to be able to overcome the challenges with only a fraction of which the DM crew had, is pretty much fucking great.


Rock on.

I forgive the deception altho' I would have liked to help more or at least be "in" on it, lol. Again - nice job - way to take advantage of an opportunity to do something so big. And congrats to those who supported you and your crazy idea. Your spotter/co-driver must have worked his butt off.

No, we carried O2 for emergencies only, but we did not use neither Oxigen nor Winch.

I slept twice a week at 12.00ft during December 2006, after the first attempt, then once a week till last attempt.

One day before record we stayed at 19.000 ft and slept at 15.000. Next day was the record´s day,.-

"Just for the record"........Forget about fancy hotels, 20 people crew, 7 new Chrysler rigs (between the JK´s and support vehicles), and a pretty big budget......Gonzalo built his Samurai with his own hands and tools, blew up one engine trying to right tune the supercharger, he was there ONLY with his spotter.
The budget came from his pocket & a couple of dollars from the company where he works.
This was a "fight" between David & Golliat.....where David kicked Golliat ASS
Well, I bring home some piece of their budget

(was on the ground)
