OF COURSE! I have a running Rover and nothing is currently broke (well the heater is a bit flaky but who need heat). The real question; is anyone else going out with us? Or who wants to see how long I can go without something else breaking?

So does anyone want to come out and play? Come on! I know some of you guys! And I know some of you live near by! We can do an easy trail or 2 if you are afraid of breaking something. Heck does anyone want to ride shotgun with me? Don't worry I'll let you out before I try anything crazy, I haven't lost one passenger yet!

Shoot.. I wasn't up on reading the forum.
Looks.. wet. I need to get that wading plug for my tranny before I join you again.

Spent today extending my bumpstops so I won't go through any more shocks.

Noah, yep thats the one that you went through, the one Garry went around and took off his mirror. I did the same thing you did, I took it in third and bogged down at the end, backed up and shot through it in second. Jimmy went first and almost made it, he was 10 feet from the end and then he got high centered and had to winch a few feet.

Tyler, yes my shoes got soaked again and my headlights have some water in them. What you didn't get to see was when Jimmy went into the hole in the second set of pics, about 1/2 way through a log about 3 feet long and 16" in diameter got washed up onto his bumper and stayed there for the rest of the ride through the mud.

Looks like fun, but a mess to clean up I went playing in the rocks yesterday for the first time in my defender - had a blast .

Charles, I have an ARB bumper that has 2 light tabs across the top bar, and I just stuck some 1/2 inch threaded rod through to bolt the high lift to.

OK, thanks. I have a stock brush guard. The plastic coating makes welding tabs onto it a pita, so I'm looking at alternatives (until I shell out for a nice ARB bumber or make my own).
