Shotgun Creek OHV. There's this big bowl with some huge trenches in the bottom. The toyota on its side tried a "faster" approach to get up and out of the bottom of the trench. The narrow stock size tires got caught in the rut, carried the truck up the sidewall, and then flopped over.

Rick hooked the winch up to the frame and I hooked up my straps to the front bumper to keep the truck from being drug backwards. With Rick running the winch and me applying tension with the strap, we got the flopper back on it's tires, then eased it back out of the trench. The owner re-attached the canopy, fired er up, and continued wheeling. Took about 10 minutes.

The hilarious part is that later in the day we were standing around watching the trench action-explaining to some on-lookers about the earlier flop, and a Zuki did the exact same thing like it was on cue or something.

Local Mud spot. The first pictures were taken from the rim of the bowl overlooking the trenches. This spot provides enless hours of fun watching people throw their junk around down there. The nice part is being able to observe from the rim which is out of range of exploding u-joints etc.

Hey Wheelie, that's a nice bob job, did mine about a month ago or so. I haven't been keeping myself informed I guess, how long has it been? No more topper? I cut mine to fit short bed one just in case. Anyway, I dig the pics! <IMG SRC="smilies/jeep1.gif" border="0"> rollover junk rules!!

I cut 17" off the back end in August I think it was. I also did the 3/4 elliptical Mazda/toy swap in the back. Really pleased with it. There's an anti-wrap bar under there also now. Works awesome.
