Great day today at Walker Valley. Blue sky and sunshine the entire time we were there and yet everything was more muddy and wet than I have seen earlier this year which left a little more challenge than a typical dry day.
Considering the number of people in the parking lot we didn't run into too many on the trails which was great, I was expecting much more of an issue with this when we first got there.
I apologize since I don't know everyone that was with us by name and screen name. No significant issues from the group as a whole, but a few challenging spots for some.
Brian (white TJ Rubicon) got to use his winch for the first time ever (to pull himself off a rock down hill) you don't get to see that much ;) Then used it again to rescue a blazer going into the trails through the gate keeper.
Todd (red YJ) had some issues with his fuel pump going out, and being open/open and a stick had some issues above the rock wall on Expressway the second time we ran that trail, no issue the first time.
My son drove most of the day and got a bunch of experience learning to drive and navigate which was excellent. He did have a couple of issues getting comfortable driving on a couple of obstacles but did great overall.
No sure of any other issues with the group. Since we were in the very back I likely missed some of the activity.

I did try to take some photos and will post them up shortly.
We did also get some video and I will get my son to put it together and get it posted on Youtube and linked in this thread later this week.

My next projects are to replace the winch solenoid and add oil to the front and rear air shocks.

Internet proof my shit moved! Guess I can take it apart now and do something else.

Had a blast working some of the bugs out.

I need to add a few more tie downs for the rear. Trailer didn't come with many options.

Fabform? I had the same problem with mine. I ended up welding some more d-rings on the front and rear of the trailer to get a straight pull... well, straighter.

Yep. I added quite a few but need a couple more for the rear, especially with how the rig sits on there.

Enjoy!

It did great, but we really didn't do anything challenging.
I didn't drive most of the time and my co driver did great but apparently when I was co driving I didn't pay enough attention to the camera, I need to get better at all of the responsibilities ;)

Since this trip we have added 10 cc of oil to all 4 shocks and raised the pressure another 20psi and got to just above 5" of up travel on all 4 corners so the next trip out will be interesting to see. I don't think I want to add any more pressure to the shocks but we will see how it performs after Thanksgiving weekend and make some decisions from there.
