You appear to have impressed all of the jeep folks lol!! I'm guessing a few of them had issues getting thru that spot?? Nice driving for sure!

The jeep guys were struggling a bit. I brought the Blazer because it isn't nearly as capable as the jeep, but it turned out to be a better choice for the trails we were on anyway. No secret...the solid axles seem to keep the tires on the ground better than the IFS. Oh, and lockers.

Nice video! Thanks for sharing, and post more! I have to live vicariously through you guys right now. Working too much to go have fun anywhere.

Nice pictures. Looks like a lot of fun. I wish Alberta was that green right now. We just got another foot and a half of snow, and it's still coming down.
