went on a little run with the HCR guys saturday in payson. pretty easy road most of the way, would have been very scenic if the clouds werent so low and lite rain all day.
the high light of the day was walking the "in-famous" Upper Skull Crusher trail. the last water fall on this trail is awesome.
then on the way home my buddy Justin called and wanted to do a shake down run on his newly stretched TJ on his new ORI struts. so i left the bus loaded and hit TM sunday.
this about when we realized the right rear strut wasnt extending all the way, only about 8" of the 16" of shaft travel
his jeep is really hard to spot for due to really strong motor, and a stall conveter that wouldnt move it at 2500rpm, but at 2600rpm it would lurch foward 4 feet. its more of a sand jeep than anything.
while attending his slow leaking tire these two guys popped up the trail
yes the truck has rear steer and leaf springs, but wasnt working right.
then we decided it was getting dark and hi tailed it up the rest of the trail, but i had to play on this last obstacle a little
im still learning to drive this thing but i was pretty happy when it crawled right up this
