Our group had a good time also. One guy blew out a Bogger on the way to haspin and another broke a front stub shaft but 20 minutes later we had a new stub shaft in and him stuck again.

Much better day than I expected with the rain we had been getting. I only hit one real bad hole that had no bottom. I ended up winching out with 3 of 37" tires level with the top of the mud and the other 1ft below the mud. My 9500 pound winch actually was struggling to get me out.

Aaron, sorry about you distributor.

Well I could write a post about how to spend $300.00 drive to haspin and never get the jeep off the trailer.

I didn't get there till almost 1pm and after making a lap around and almost getting the tow rig stuck in the lower lot I drove right back out the gate and went back to the house.

Disapointing but the day started out with jeep problems that turned into tow rig problems and after waiting half the day the parking lot was kinda the last straw. Figured I best go back to the house and cut my losses. Rest of the day went well with mass quantites of fermented beverage.

Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.

No biggie. I finally found what I needed at Autozone in Connersville. Of course it was the third parts store I went to. Took a wrong turn leaving, nearly got ran off HWY 121 twice and finally made it back to Haspin. Waited around a little, couldn't reach anybody with the cell phone (no cell coverage in Franklin County ) and finally said heck with it and headed home. Oh, and I had a U-joint in the rear driveshaft go out in my Dodge too. Got everything back up and running now though!! Ready for next time!!!
Glad you guys had a good time!!!

Hey Dan, post a pic of your dead sexxy CJ!!! I wish I could have checked it out some more. Love the camo top. Jarrod said he couldnt believe the places you were going with it on 33's.

Under your reply box click Go Advanced. At the top of the advanced box is a paper clip icon. That's what handles attachments. You upload the pictures, as many as four I think, and then close that window. While you're typing your reply you can click on the paper clip again and select a picture from the uploaded list for insertion.

The most common problem people have is trying to upload pictures that are too big.Watch the size limits, and watch for a rather inconspicuous size error message after uploading.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
