Look I am here! Thanks for texting me Spenser :)

My wife gets back from out of town after a week this Friday, so I will lay the ground work asap.

I talked to Matt with the TJ and he might have been moved to a new schedule with work so he is checking into it.

I am up in the air for now. I will keep checking back here... At least if I go I can be the camera man again. NO TALKING!!!!!!!!:simmadown::lol:

Hey boys! I am in for Sunday...to ride along and video tape if that's cool?

John, you are only 2 exits down from me so I was hoping that I could ask if we all met at the 55 and Richardson Circle K again?

Also, Spenser bring your front lift and control arms...I think you officially have a buyer :rocker:

One step closer to joining you guys on the trails...

Shawn, I am a Jayhawk if you remember so what I can do is bring a basketball on Sunday, slam dunk it mulitple times in front of you, hold up some crimson and blue, then we can call that a game summary between KU and IL :rofl: Problem solved!

Yeah, a person would probably wonder why we had to winch up that last obstacle if they just watched the video...that was gnarly though. Spenser, you had a great line at the end if that locker wouldn't have kicked you out. I will have to get up John's video for comparison.

Another great video John! Sorry for backing up right in front of you.
No problem, I would never go all Christian Bale on you :)
That was your close up!

Nice big black FJ in the second vid, but I have to know, what did you cut out?
Ha, nothing bad really..Just a conversation between John and Nick (I think, tall skinny kid with blue shirt) that was directly to my side. They were just having a personal talk about Moab and FJ's and such...decided to keep things private for them and take it out...honestly I don't think we caught any profanity on tape for once.:clap:

Ha ha looks like I can't crawl up 2" rocks in that video!
First off, all you guys did some amazing driving! But, I know what you mean when I watch the videos. There are so many shots where we are stacking rocks when it looks like you are just climbing over a curb. The previous video from the green trails looks 10x harder than the recent red trail footage...I guess I'll have to turn off the "rock shrinking" setting on the camera next time. That trail was down right tough...period.

I think that the depth perception of the rocks is thrown off when the FJ front bash plate approaches an obstacle. It makes all the day light disappear between the obstacle and the skid plate, thus giving the impression that the FJ looks like it's sitting really low. With a solid axle you can see the light over the top of the axle between the suspension and the body giving a better representation of the obstacle...at least that is the story I am sticking to.

If someone gave me $10K right now exclusively for the FJ...SAS for me
