Dam I posted over here.
http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/trail-report-photo-section-gps-coordinates/46102-south-eastern-region-eglin-afb-polar-bear-run-report.html Apex, let me know via PM and I will put mine here. I thought a new one with just pictures and post run stuff would be good vs going through 30 pages! I will repost in this thread to keep things simple, so kill that one if you want.

I have declared this the South Eatern Region's Polar Bear Run at Eglin!

I will post more of a write up here when I have time. I wanted to start the thread and get some pics posted. We all had a blast! There was no body damage, temps were low 40's and raining much of Saturday, 25 at night at the beach with a 30 mph wind, and mid 40's and sunny Sunday. Again, I will write up more later, and others can add their 2 cents. HUGE KUDOS TO APEXBASHER FOR HIS GUIDANCE AND ORGANIZATION OF THIS WHOLE THING!

Now for the teaser pics.
The start


Side Hill and frame twisting, scoping it out first.


The Noah says 2x2, we went 1x1 though.






The big boy!


Tail Gunner


Airtime!













The whole Crew


A river ran through it!




How deep was it, here is an H2 with 37's! We got everyone through, no winching, even stockers. Much to the locals dismay too!




Frozen Dinner, AMAZING GUMBO BAMA!


Day 2, opps






And yes, we did it. OH WHAT'A FEELING, TOYOTA!


Hehe. I have more and different pictures that I will post/change out when I do a good write up in the next few days. I cannot wait to see other pictures.

No BFG's at this run Mr Telecaster! After running my Revo's there I wont be going to BFG A/T's. These did everythign I could ahve wanted and more off road, where I was concerned about them. On road they simply blow the BFG away!

Aftermath: all three idler pulleys had to be replaced, and stereo amplifier is toast (my fault for putting it under the seat). Quality Imports in FWB took good care of me and did the work under warranty.

Moved all of the breathers higher this weekend, just in time for someone to do a hit and run on my truck at the grocery store - no serious damage, but the rear driver's side fender trim and bumper wing need to be replaced. Sometimes you just can't win.

I got hit before I got my first oil change. In shop for three weeks because the parts were hard to get in. I'm assuming because the FJ's are so new.
