PYRO wins Hawaii TTC!!!!

Just got home from Oahu(different Island then where I live) with the 1st place trophy for the Hawaii Top Truck Challange!!! It was a great fun event with a 30 degree RTI ramp, 100' rock crawling course and 150' mud bog(3.5' deep). The TTC was limited to 22 rigs that were choosen by submitting an application with your rigs spec's and your driving experience. This was the frist annual running of this event and had over 75 others rigs entered to run in the mod bog section. Here's some pic's.

Re: PYRO wins Hawaii TTC!!!!

That doesnt surprise me one bit.
You have an awesome rig. With some great modifications.
You could do well in any TTC, anywhere.
Congrats.
I have my own little competition this weekend too, on the Con, going head to head with the Pirates, in there backyard.
What did you score on the ramp, what degree was it?
Conrats again, that rig of yours, is sweet.(to bad you couldnt find some square headlights to insert into the grill instaed of those round one, Hehehe, maybe thats a mod you can look forward to doing later.

Re: PYRO wins Hawaii TTC!!!!

Definitely post the link when you get the results.

Congrats, that is one nice jeep, and it sounds like you know how to drive it as well.

Maybe someday, when one of us is rich and famous, we can all get together for a SWB TTC.

Do you have more pics?

The tires are 38.5x14.5x16.5, on the narrow Humvee wheels(8.25) the tires bulge at 39.5 tall.

Re: PYRO wins Hawaii TTC!!!!

It's hard to tell from the pics, but where is the SWB sticker?
