Back at Paragon again!
We had quite the diverse group:
ox in his green bronco on portals & 42s
kevin in his V8 CJ on 37" bias Claws
Mybon in his EFI 85 toy on 39" MT Baja Belted
Paul in his 4cyl TJ on 35" SSRs
Arminio in his V8 '66 EB on 35" MTs
his buddy (i can never remember his name) in his zuk on ~33 Thornbirds
Kate in her XJ, i forget what tires
Danny's g/f in his 4Runner (he's in Moab right now,the lucky bastard) on 35*14.5 Racing MTRs
We pretty much went straight to Outer Spare Tire. Did have any problems till we got there. Paul did break thrut he ice and get stuck in the water, but Kev snatched him out. Ox was playing in it, and almost got stuck, but he was able to power out of it.
All went well until we were getting out of the water crossing at OST. We were having a hell of a time, and were unsuccessful going out the right exit due to the rear left tire not spinning. We had to go out thru the normal exit, which claimed the rear right tire. Took it right off the rim! Mybon winched us up and out of the exit, with the truck rolling in the (now severly smashed) rim. the tire laid nearly-unhurt at the bottom of the hill. Later, at the end of the day, we pulled the rear left shaft to find it broken in half! Seems a LS Dana60 doesnt mix well with 39.5s.
other than that, the day went pretty smooth. Unfortunately, the camera was acting up again, so these are all the pics we got.
