Open Trail Rides / Re: Rubicon 2019
« Last post by hamrtime on Yesterday at 02:17:01 PM »


rush trip we went down thru idaho,spokane and by time got to bend oregan it was 41c so headed to eugene (coast) down california coast (18c) then back inland connecting at redding calif heading se , entered at loon lake and exited lake tahoe, drive back was up through reno to montana for change of scenary and cooler ...

3 days there, 3 days on trail (half that is camping and party) and 3 days back ..

bolting armour on our jeeps is good idea but the rubicon's "gotcha" is driver fatigue, it never lets up and just clawed at us all the way , from loon lake to rubicon springs it was 14+ hours of technical with not much of a break.

never took the strap but damage included: rear spring packs crack, rear shock bushings trying to exit, rear D44 weaping at cover, front D30 bolts ground off, front ubolts bend back/stretched, front bumper bent, skid dented - muffler dented - tank skid dented, small tear at body mount, blew motor mount rubber on cadillac hill

the rocks just keep coming, picking a line was usually doable but few spots there were just so many watermellon/pumpkin/couch sized rocks for 100's of feet it was challenging ...

maybe cause i was the only canuck that made it down for this run I made jamboree's offical 'sales' video which doesnt show the carnage some suffered, several came out on straps, one rumored to be failed detroit ...

i'll be going to moab for ejs 2019 so cant make it with you all so will get off this topic but hopefully motivate those thinking about it to get on this run its something you'll remember for life time   :)

feel free to pm me if anything you think i can help with , we went with 150 other jeeps (jeepers jamboree)

I would definitely be trailering old blue down and cannonballing all the way there.  From what I have read the water crossing on fordice is a pretty big early spring, snorkel required.   I was thinking touring around CA including Yosemite and wheeling blackrock/northern Nevada on the way back.  Vegas isn't really on the way.

Other Stuff For Sale / Wanted / Tire Chains (Heavy set)
« Last post by Hi Lo Silver on October 17, 2018, 10:49:05 AM »
No pictures due to no host for them. I can send them via email if needed.

I have two sets of 2 tire chains with extra v bar cross members added between original cross members.  I ran them on 32" x 10" tires but they could be altered to fit your own tires.

They are 18" wide x 64" long.

I'll let them go for $125 a pair....I'm not yet sure if I'll sell both pairs but we can talk.

Each chain comes with a carrying case made from a makita skill saw case.

I do have other pairs available but they're light chains and different sizes.
 I'll call this spring clean up sale because I'm a procrastinator.
