Cold Day at Attica Wheeling


Got back to watch the Super Bowl but did a little wheeling first today.

OK OK my jeep has no top and no heater so I just road along today but it was still damn cold. Low of 5F and a high of 16F.

Below zero with the wind chill all day I bet.

The cold made breakage wide spread.

1 toyota rear shaft

1 rear warn full floater lockout(it didn't just break the entire cover and all shattered.)

1 front axle ujoint

2 bent 4.5" RE lift leaf spring(bent them about 60 degrees)

1 soft top significantly more distorted

1 TSL shreaded from the wheel(damned 4" of ice in the creek run)

1 driverside YJ meatal fender almost ripped completely off.

1 Windshiel broke out

2 windshield frames toasted

1 toyota starter fried

Ya and I slipped on the ice while helping to stap one TJ and bashed my face off a rock. The wife says it may be an improvement. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/headspin.gif[/img]

I can say it was just about too damn cold for me to be out wheeling. My jeep sure was alot easier too clean since it never left my garage!!!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

Re: Cold Day at Attica Wheeling

All that breakage, money down the toilet (they'd say), could have gotten hurt, or worse!!!

Sounds like it was a good time to me. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
