No way that thing was sweet!

Now we drove all the way to penrose to ty and wheel it. It was closed so we went to the little moab trail. The first thing to happen was my truck would basicly catch fire everytime I went up a steep incline. Oil would just pour on the exhaust. Then my p/s box decided it was time to quit so it blew the seals. So without steering again! Glad I have a backup. No real damage to report other than that. Let the fun of the pics begin.

2) Dan, you actually drove Le Crusher?!?
3) Bet you wish the topper was on for that one mud hole pic...
4) Naturally I wish I was there!

The funny thing about that is we could have prevented it from rolling . But I don't know about every one on here but I don't let jeeps winch or pull me ..... .... But I will admit to having his jeep jump start my truck .

I drive it from time to time. I just drive it like I stole it. They will all tell you ha. Glad I didn't have the topper. Glass is hard to find.
Buy a rig and lets hit some trails.

Thanks Guys, had a blast. Little Moab was fun I'd go again....would prefer power steering those switch backs are killer. But over all nice, fun and semi hard day.

My steering was doing well until the seals on the box went bad. Pulled the seals today and they didn't look bad either. But new seals on the way just for the heck of it.
Yep I did seem to get a little air there. With no steering I just push the skinny pedal.
