True, but that way I didn't have to worry about it falling apart and lighting on fire! (kidding)

Something tells me that Bob didn't have any issues in his SIII with the tracks on.

Okay, I have to ask (if you know), is this LR4 just at the upper level of its adjustable suspension, or lifted in some way? And what tires\size are on it?

What kind of hit snapped this TF bumper? Any chance you could measure the wall thickness of the tube and provide a close up of the weld that failed?

You would think that.. but alas that was not the case. I think the treads need to be a bit more aggressive. His is set up well for multiple terrains.

I believe so, should be 32" tires I think?

It's Dave Marchand's truck(he may eventually see this and answer)

That thing is gorgeous.

He was working up speed to break the trail and hit a tree when the truck didn't turn. It didn't look like a hard hit from behind at 3:00 a.m., but I guess it was.

His synthetic winch line also broke 6 times.

Wow that's 3 lines that I've seen/heard of break in the last week. That's no good!

I'm curious on that also. Looks really tall.

I wonder if you can "trick" or "fool" the EAS into thinking the ride height is lower than it actually is when you recalibrate the EAS. You can do this on the earlier EAS systems.

Either way, thats a cozy way to do the Winter Romp for sure.

I'm curious what type of line he was running ? I have had plasma on rigs for years of solid abuse and not broke a line yet . But I have seen a few break in the last year or so . Most have been the Chinese ropes or the Amsteel stuff that wasn't rated for winch duty . There's so many brands and types these days it's hard to keep up . So I just bought a 600 ft roll of the real stuff to make sure . :-)

It looks like it is in extended mode. You could fool the height sensors to cause the suspension to always sit higher than it should, but your alignment would be all fucked up. I can't imagine that you could get the camber and castor even close with it in extended mode.
