    20 minutes of wheeling and 3 broken rigs :( I cut a tire, Jesse broke his electric fan and smashed his hood in the roll and Mikes motor wasn't acting right and idling high

    Jesse attempting a climb that he knows of only 3 or 4 other people who have made it up (He works there at the badlands). He ended up making it up twice.

    Then I had to try it even though I had serious doubts I could make it up. It has one part its VERY steep fro almost 4 feet. After quite a few tries I fianlly made it though.

    Awesome trip and great wether considering. Wish it would have been a little more breakage free and less problems but it was good enough I can't complain :)

    great pics, in fact I have one as my background on my computer at work.

    Does that rig have a locker in the rear? From the looks of your rigs I'd say yes, but in that pic it looks as if 1 tire is spinning and the other is still.

    Its hard to compare, since everyone I wheel with had red label Krawlers which is the competition compund, my MTRs are normal street and plus our rigs are so different with way different wheelbases. The willys has around an 85" wheelbase, mine is 94, and Mike tube chasis is around 103. So its pretty hard to directly compare and know exactly what made the differance on what.

    Yeah I have ARBs front and rear. I thought I had them engauged every climb on that one but a lot of the time I had to re manuver at the bottom so I would turn them off so maybe I forgot to put one back on after I got lined up? I am pretty sure the rear is enguaged since you can see one spinning and it looks like the pther is throwing dirt but the front it looks like one is not spining so thats the one I noticed.


    As for the the pics thanks. Also if you want a bigger size of any of the pics take out the .sized out of the web adress and there is a fullsize version.

    Yeah but you probably don't want to run them on the street.
