Ran chinamann's gulch this last weekend with a local club. Just thought Id share some pictures. It rained the entire weekend which made the trail and camping a little more interesting.








Some carnage, broken sector shaft!

twisted driveshaft

both were repaired on the trail and drove out.











































and some shameless poser shots i took at a "playground" on the ride home

Yeah mike it would have been cool to see you there, RMFTC is a great bunch to wheel with. Gotta love wheeling with other rbvs. Usually just a bunch of jeeps out on the trail. The one yota that went was stock, had to yank him off a couple of obstacles but he drove in and out with very little body damage all things considered.

My ranger did fine but powering my way up and over the rocks (powering? with the 2.9:icon_rofl:) sucks. I got to get on that doubler. This might be the last run for me unless I do spring creek on july 3rd. If so Ill have an empty seat but I want to get some building done while I have the free time.

Man...I need to get the BII back on the road.

Your truck looks great man. Maybe time for a 4.0? That blue ranger is pretty sick as well.

How are your extended arms treating you?

Thanks, yeah Ive been looking for a nice cheap engine/parts donor for my ranger, and I still haven't really touched the 84 BII....Whats up with your truck, just the front end swap or what??

Yeah that blue ranger is built, I especially like the atlas and the tube bed!

The radius arms/crossmember are holding up very well. Should have done it sooner.

I'm surprised no one said anything about how badass that chopped explorer looks.
