was the shakedown run for my YJ since the SOA and drivetrain swap. everything worked really good had some small issues during the day.

thanks to Jeep Thrills, Phil at TDD and everyone else who had put in time and work on the jeep or sold me parts along the way [36] :cool:


I had have some problems with the jeep but nothing major, overheated at one point... note to self electric fan needs to be on at all times.. but aside from that the 4cyl rad did cool the v8 pretty good... end of the day Gord says your driveshaft is bent.. i didnt feel any vibes surprisingly.. when i looked at it, it was curve like a bannana, that was my only carnage for the day, suspension and motor worked really good.

the trails were great and it was a great day here are some pictures.

You can get to it a couple different ways , the Yarrow exit the back way or through the cultas lake turnoff

Nice pic's thats a long drop off that spot on the Channel 8 up and over , Did they make a go around for the big obstruction just up from there?

Vedder Mountain is real easy going,good place to test and tune though.

those last few pics were very close to the breakover angle, if i leaned over to the right to grab something from the passenger floor the jeep started to tip..

not to sure on the big obstructions your refereing too Todd, but we might have., there was also alot of trails we didnt do.

looks like a gooder time, you guys find any snow? and have they logged the back section out much more? we hit the first trail when you get up there and ended up in a huge clear cut section, got lost and ended up in abby!?
