who got the flat? did they just break a bead or puncture a side wall? was it the black fj w/the scratch guards?

Besides a little overheating issue on the same hill where the flat occurred, I think the truck handled it all really well. I need to do some wire tracing on the electric fan I have installed to see if there is an override switch somewhere or I'll need to install one. I also found where I need to do some trimming to get the 35's to fit better on full compression. It was a really fun day!!

If that doesn't work for you, it would be best to get the Wells book (page 141) and a GPS

Thank you pucker factor Patty for the awesome pictures.
Patty enjoyed taking all the pics, and it was easy leading a good group of wheelers :thumbs:

Great Photos, I remember the last time I went on that trail, it was quite a hair-raising experience, getting that flat trying to escape the immpending storm, trying to climb up a knarly ledgy ascent, as it poured rain down on me trying to set up my highlift in that muck on the side of that mountain and Crawler coming back down the slop to save me :)

I had a great time out there this weekend. I particularly enjoyed the steep ascents. Mark did a great job leading & spotting & Patty gets props on all the cool pics. I'm looking forward to the next outing.
