Overall it was a great trip, my breakage was a little more than I had intended (messed up my tranny, and it claimed a front caliper) A stock TJ on 30's is pretty capable! Anyway heres some photos..
Group 1 for the day..

Image
Image
Image
Image
I had to doo doo..
Image
More people had to doo doo..
Image
We are still waiting on Marlon but we get a text saying he is gonna be a bit. So we hit the trails. I took the lead..
Hey look a 2013 10th anniversary Jeep Wrangler Rubicon..I want one of those!
Image
Stopped on the trail for something I can't remember but I took a picture of my Jeep
Image
Image
Ah yeah, lets not go this way..
Image
Let me turn around..
Image
Yarr!
Image
This way is better, follow me guys..
Image
Down through the puddle..
Image
Image
and out..you guys got it?
Image
Jeep number 1 has it..
Image
and number 2...good lets move on
Image
and we forge ahead more..
Image
Image
Hey Marlon is back up in the parking lot, lets go meet him..but wait some puddles to play in..
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Motha Fawkin pimp like Chambord right there..
Image
Ok Marlons here..
Image
You lead for awhile though dude..
Image
Image
Minutes later, I somehow end back up in the lead and fawk...
Image
Image
Ok thanks for the tug out..
Image
Image
then seconds later..it happens again..not as much water this time though
Image
thanks again for the strap on man..
Image
At one point I end up getting hung up again, but ended up winching myself out due other jeeps getting stuck besides us. Its a bad trail..Ok lets get off the "mild to wild" trail peeps..
Image
Image
Image
Image
dicking around in the common area..
Image
The two TJ's..
Image
Image
The uni bodies join in..
Image
Image
More common area photos
Image
Image
Image
Image
Yeah people are starting to break...little did I know I was half broken when I tried to leave..
Image

All and all I had a really great time, just cost me a little more than I had intended but thats part of wheeling right? I hope you enjoyed the photos, might be awhile before I'm able to get back out..

*note* some photo's belong to JeepFrog, just so she gets credit..

How did you manage to mess up your tranny?

That one hole you see the pass side of my jeep sunk in, well water entered the trans that way. I limped it home with only first and second gear (its a 3 speed auto) and pulled it in the garage, did a flush and dropped the pan and did a filter change. So far everything is somewhat back to normal and it drives normal. However you can tell its still kinda upset about the whole deal.

Oh boy. I'm guessing that's the hole you messed up the caliper as well?

BTW great pics! :JEEPIN:

Not sure about the caliper, I'm guessing its a factory caliper, so I'm sure the mud did it in. I didn't noticed that until a couple days after the trip when I smelled "hot" brakes. When I got home I felt each wheel and sure enough the drivers side front rim was HOT. At least its an easy fix..

and it was a nice day to work on it.. trans pan pulled after flushing and replacing the filter.
Image
new filter on..
Image
The empty ATF jugs and some of the old crappy fluid (mixed in with used engine oil, no the engine oil did not come out of the trans lol)
Image
Remember folks always consult your FSM..

Great Photos, Jeeper & JeepFrog! :JEEPIN: I enjoyed reading your narrative too. I hope you get all the bugs worked out of your tranny. Turns out I'm not far from Bundy Hill this week. I'm in Brooklyn MI visiting the family. They have a driveway and a garage (unlike me at home) so I've been able to refurbish my rusty rock sliders and roof rack.
