The Dust Devils hit up Rimrock this last weekend. We tried to get an early start before the heat. One jeep wouldn't start, after 2 hours of putzing around with fuel filters and relay switches it was determined that putting the windshield back on would fix it.....ground wire.
We entered the trail at 10am and ChittyChittyBangBang decides to act up. After another hour of messing I towed him back to camp.

Did i mention it was hot?

Image

We started Butcher Knife around 11 and 2 of the 3 jeeps overheated.

Image

We spent a lot of time waiting.

Image

I have never been successful on Butcher Knife and have always taken a winch line because of that stupid rock- i know you cant tell but its really steep and the soil is super soft. This time was a success. We saw lots of wildlife- black bear and deer. We conclude our day with Narrow Neck

Image

great day of wheeling.

Image

Cant wait to go back

I read your specs in the mag....I meant it's PH phat as in too pretty and cool. I watched Bryan P drive through everything at Rimrock without issues and he's wide.

I'm 80 inches to the outside of tires, but the body is only 54 inches wide.

Yes, you're still wide but you have driving skills. JB would be long and rub some trees. I've seen it done, it's just not pretty ( remember that JK that we took through RimRock?) :thumbsdown:

I thought that jk was wider than 80? JB will definitely have to watch the sheet metal...the trees are much tighter than Naches & off camber. The first set of trees on bridge trail would eat his passenger windshield.

The cab of the truck is a few inches narrower than the top of a JK, but I've been thinking about a removable cab halo to protect the sheetmetal. I'd give it a shot if I had some protection. :brows:

Bubble wrap and a helmet? I bet there's a group of us that would take you to RimRock if you want to go.
