    Had a good sized group out there, think we had 12 rigs in a total. Quite a few ZJ's, some TJ's, and a YJ, and Vintage (and I'm not talking about Al). Made it through the trail relatively unscathed, some new sheet metal work on a couple rigs and I need a new side view mirror now, but nothing too bad.

    We just got home a little bit ago, Stan (SCAMPER ZJ) ended up blowing something up on his truck just outside Fairplay. Looked to be turbo related, but we're not sure. He's getting truck, trailer, and Jeep towed home. Hopefully it's nothing major. I was hoping for something simple like one of the boots on the intercooler pipes coming off, but it's something more serious than that. He managed to lose a lot of oil too.

    I'll get our pics up in the morning.

    Stan can't catch a break it seems.

    Sounds like a fun trip.

    On to our pics . . . .

    Coming through the first little rock chute




    Getting flexy in the rock pile




    Pam clearing it no problem with the new lift


    Joe coming through


    Vintage!


    Scott taking the high road


    Stan coming through


    Shaft and Rubi


    I think 3 of us tried the left line on Whale Rock, and none of us made it up. My rear wheels kept slipping off to the left which would've been rather unenjoyable if I went too far. Stan and Justin tried it too if I remember right and we had to strap Justin off cuz he ended up too cockeyed on it to back down. When I backed down I got way too close to the rocks on the left and rearranged my front fender and destroyed my sideview mirror. Also got my front axle hung up on the ridge that makes up the left side of the rock and had to get strapped off. The obstacle doesn't really look like the bottoms getting dug out, but it's definitely harder to get up it than it was a few years ago.





    Pam making the center line look easy


    We ended up forgetting the camera in the Jeep after driving up the trail a bit to make room for everyone, so that's all the pics we have from Whale Rock.

    Flex shot at the stairs


    I spotted Pam a little too close to the tree

    Pam trying to flex it a little too much, seemed to be a common theme in this spot though


    Joe threw up a real nice wheel stand, but I didn't have the camera ready in time


    Vintage air!


    You know you're jealous of that mad articulation


    Scott flexin it up


    Augie rockin the short arm flex


    Justin's turn


    Cristi and Stan both tried the left line on the stairs. I remember when the obstacle first opened making it up on 33's, that one's DEFINITELY a lot more dug out. Cristi on 37's and Stan on 35's both had to pull cable, but once they put some weight on the front it helped out a lot.





    Coming up the chute


    Pam made it look easy, she's really diggin the bigger lift


    Scott


    Cristi


    Stan


    Poser shot on the way out

    Nice. Cool trail. it's always nice to have a couple options on obstacles to keep the riff raff entertained.

    Nice pics, nice rigs. Not to hijack, but does someone know who made the bumper that Stan is running? It looks like KOR.

    EDIT: not only do I now know that it is a KOR bumper, I saw Stan's rig on the KOR website.

    Got a text from Stan, turns out it was some o-rings on his turbo. So hopefully nothing else got damaged in all of it!

    Had a great time wheeling with you guy's again, OCG is always a good time. Maybe next time I'll have some of Pam's luck and not rub the t-case skid and muffler that many times.

    Yeah, coming back from OCG my truck started stalling. It was subtle at first; I thought it was just turbo surge initially (something about Hwy 285 seems to really bring that out). However I realized it was something more ominous when I began to lose power on a straight flat stretch after passing the turnoff for 24. Over the course of about two minutes, I lost all turbo pressure. I got off to the side of the road and couldnít get it to start again. Popped the hood and found oil all over the place!! So there I was half way between Johnsonís Village and Fairplay. . .7PM Sunday evening. I had good cell signal so I called Big Dave because he had stayed back in Johnsonís Village - he thought it might be the turbo injector tubes. They seemed intact when we checked though, so I pretty much figured I had done something much worse. Anyway, I was out of oil, and couldnít figure out where the leak was coming from, so I called Farmerís. A number of people stopped from the group as they came by to check on me (thanks guys, that really meant a lot). I sent my brother Chris back with Big Dave and Pam after we hung out for a while and I waited the last 20 minutes for the tow truck which finally arrived a little after 9PM. We loaded the truck on an F650 flatbed with a Cat engine and towed the ZJ/trailer without a trailer brake the 100 miles back to my house (going 20-30 up hills and 45-50 down) Ė with the trip back taking over 4 hours. Total bill, AFTER my towing insurance: $700 (OUCH)!!

    Anyway, I was afraid the towing bill would be just the start (and I havenít gotten the truck back yet, so I may not be out of the woods), but Rocky at Rockin S Performance in Ft Lupton thinks the engine is OK and the huge leak turned out to just be an o-ring (Big Daveís second guess). PHEW!! I donít need it back right away so heís going to do a full oil change (he used the cheap stuff to diagnose the prob), put in a larger tranny cooler (Iíve been planning to have this done, I was running hot en route Moab and a little warm yesterday), and install a ďwicked wheelĒ in the turbo (another item Iíve been meaning to do which hopefully will eliminate the surge issue Ė if not Iím going to have to get a larger turbo housing).

    I will sort through pics later this week - I'm kind of slammed at work but I'm hoping to have some time Wednesday.

    Other than the truck thing. . .I HAD A BLAST!!

    Awesome, I was thinking last night after I got your text about the pedestal o-rings how you should have Rocky put that wheel in while it's all torn down. I knew Rocky would get ya taken care of. You'll have to let me know how that tranny cooler works out, which one did you go with?

    I saw you all outside of Fairplay as you were headed down on Sunday morning, but I doubt you noticed me as I was in our stock mall crawler WK!

    Dave, you weren't kidding when you mistook my ZJ as Pam's. They are REALLY similar! Right down to the CB mount and stock wheels.



    Is she running RE 3.5" springs?

    Only difference I can tell looking at 'em is the tires, trimmed bumper, and the Hella' up front!

    Yup!

    Alright, no one else has said it yet.....is Pam not putting out anymore, Dave???? You've got to mount the truck now???

    Glad you guys had a good time. It looks like a sweet trail. Some CO wheelin is definitely on my shortlist.

    Rough luck Stan. Ya know, the whole reason to have a tow rig is so that if you break your rig while wheelin, you've got something to tow it back with....it ends up a little counterproductive in the wallet though when the tow rig gives out on ya. Now I know you've got some great pics!!! Don't hold out too long!!!
