Holy crap, Brad's alive! As promised, here are some pics and commentary, mostly of Tyler's carnage.

Tyler did some wheelin without breaking stuff too!

Tyler sorta missed his line and got this rock nice and crammed all up in his steering. All I could do was watch and shake my head.

Tyler managed to somehow pinch one of his 8 inch long valve stems on a rock on Cemetery and had to change out a spare in an inconvenient spot.

Tyler bending his new brake line. RC sells them, btw.

This off-camber left turn drove Tyler's tire into his hard brake line and punctured it, which caused him to lose his brakes and almost go careening uncontrollably down the side of a steep hill and taking me with him.

I kinda want to put my Jeep in a dumpster right about now too.

Not sure if you can see the sticker on the side of Eric's Jeep, but it says, "It's a rock, get over it." To be fair, he eventually got over it.

And here are the rest:

Eric, to answer your question more specifically, I was screwing around at Lake Christy and did a hill climb with a big rock in the middle of the trail (I think that's what is shown in the 3rd picture down that Tyler posted). I think because the weight of the jeep was on the back axle as it was being flexed, it just put too much pressure on my already chipped ring gear.

Eric,

How did the new truck do pulling your JK?

The F150 did great pulling the JKU. Steve was behind me the whole time, he can attest. Averaged 10mpg up and back. Not bad for a twin turbo V6.

Here is the link to my pics and vids -> Eric's pics

Yeah I was shocked. It seemed like the F150 wasn't towing anything at all. He was accelerating faster up hills than I was with my TJ's overdrive off. What's interesting is the F150 V6 ecoboost has more HP and torque and therefore better towing capacity than the V8, according to Eric and Bud.

Nice pics. Glad we got some documentation of my Crawl Daddy success!
