Thanks for the pics! What a great turnout! Couple of questions:

1) Any old wheelers there or just all you young 'un's that are making the club strong? lol

2) Were you able to save the F150 from any body damage?

I've got my rig laid up while I put the D60 under her, so no more hub problems! My pics from my phone suck so I haven't posted anything.

Thanks again!

1) Not really... Just Dave ;) . I don't consider myself "old" yet, lol :smiley-music037: . We did have John Cranfield with us yesterday riding shotgun with a young man in his stock JK. They got through just fine.

2) Jeff (Oniondip) can confirm, but I think he sustained a bit of scratching maybe a small dent (??). We first used a snatchblock to pull the rear of the truck sideways, away from the bank, before hooking him up from the front to get him by there.

Ellershouse doesn't seem to like FS Fords too much, but we won the battle this time ;) . Ellershouse...2; FS Fords...1 :P

Yup, need those tires replaced, other than that one big hill I didnt do too bad for street tires lol. Lost part of my fender flare on the rear drivers side though.

ahh the joys of oversize tires on a libby, I still have all my rear flares but only because I put those hockey pucks on the bottom plate and the extended bump stop on the top. Wish I had made it out yesterday,

Sucks Corey, next time, was going to see if we could switch rims and tires for yesterday but it was a little late saturday night. Rev limiter is there for a reason, why not use it? LOL, some meaty tires are definitely the next mod, after the bump stop mod in the rear.

Looks like an awesome time! Is that spot where the F150 was the "washout" that everyone is going on about? Why not just put the DS tire up on the bank and drive through it that way?

It was icy.

Started to slide down into the stump.

There was a tree in the way on the driver's side.

As usual pictures really don't do justice to the situation.

Where you and James (in the white 4Runner) went around between the trees is where I dented my windshield pillar 2 years ago, trying to get up to that spot. :P

Definitely a tight spot! Hit my driver side door mirror (on purpose of course).

I think it's worth mentioning that James flew through it like champ. ( I had a front row seat)

I had too many photos to upload to the forums, so here's a link to the album in no particular order.

Nice pics! You got a good progression of Jeff's Ford going in tight on the bank. You should upload those 3 or 4 directly here for all to see. :)
