09/2012 Henniker, NH Run

Post  Ryan McKee on 9/24/2012, 10:27 am

Some pics from yesterday's trail run. Only three Jeeps made it out but we had a great time, and got some absolutely gorgeous fall weather.









































Winching:





















Wish more of you could have made it out!

Great pics! Looks like a nice trail and fun time.

Would have liked to make it out, but my buddies threw me a surprise bachelor party, was in rough shape...

What a coincidence seeing you guys on I89. Looks like it was a good day. I am free in October just give me a couple of weeks of notice.

Andrew- swap the videos to "Unlisted" instead of private. Just so you can only see them if you have a link. As they're set now, nobody can watch. I don't have a ton more pics, but I'll see what I do have.

Nope, just me.

I needed like another inch or two of clearance (I'm only about a 2" lift in the back with 32s) and got hung up on a boulder on my axle-tube that was acting like a jack as I drove forward, threatening to tip me back over the ledge (while between two very large boulders.)

ha ha, yup. My exhaust got a little pancaked and my oil pan has a good dent in it, but Ryan was an *excellent* spotter and got me out with my sheet metal entirely unscathed.

I have a couple pics of the damage that I'll have to upload at some point.

Ok, the videos have been changed to unlisted, so you should be able to view them. Enjoy!

Wow, I really did get hung up a *lot*.

And it's not even my suspected rake. In the last video I hit my rear diff, and the oil pan/exhaust/leading-edge of my skid are far enough forward that compressed rear springs wouldn't really be affecting them.

....looks like I will definitely be investing in this sometime in the coming years:





Investing in a flat skid might be worth thinking about as well...

Sorry to see you got a bit of damage there,

Eh, it wasn't much, just a bit of dentage. No "damage" persay.

It was just those couple extra inches of clearance that you've got over me that made the difference. Had my skid not gotten caught on that boulder, I would have cleared it with no issues.

(Drive experience has something to do with it as well, I assume. I'm still relatively new to this.)

I'm just messing with you, I agree with you, install a skid or two.
I must have just got lucky going up that.

This looks like a sick run, and I'm bummed I missed it. I rarely work weekends, but that was one of them. Next time!
