    I'm putting the processed images I took on my Google Drive:
    https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B44wWl_Z4Yylb0RqOWh0V0NJUkE&usp=sharing#grid

    If anyone want's the camera RAW image for any of them let me know.  I'll be out of the US for a few weeks, so I'll have pretty limited bandwidth

    Video will follow as soon as I get a chance.  I shot 33 gigs (2-1/2 hours) with the main camera, and some with the GoPro and ContourHD.  It's gonna take some time to digest.

    I gotta post it Brian....

    Here's how to remove the lift blocks without any tools.  But some tools were required to continue.

    Brian finished not only this trail, but tackled Steel Bender and Hells Revenge!

    Snoopy64 (was Snoopy1964)

    We were all so glad not to see any fluids come out from under the truck with all those shards of cast aluminum. ;)
     As it was it wan't so bad. Strapped the axle back into place, winched it to the level, cranked down the u-bolts when the axle was in place and replace the u-joint. He had a spare. Back on the trail.  8)

    Great use of the tree saver and snatch block to pull him out clean.



    The smoke had already cleared some when my camera finally woke up.   ;D

    FYI to all - those were brand new poly engine mounts.   7.4:1 reduction (with the doubler and xfer both in low) gracefully peeled them both into two pieces on that unnamed, but yet ridiculous obstacle.  We strapped the engine down with a HD 1-1/2" strap - it worked so well we didn't skip any of the hard lines on the way out.  Thanks to Trevor (for picking up new mounts @ Napa while we were still out on the trail) and Derrick for helping me swap them at Kens (thanks again!) shop early the next morning.  Napa rubber mounts took the remaining weeks abuse... as the trails progressively got more difficult.   ;D

    I think this may be the best rj for pics and videos! I probably would've jarred a kidney stone loose along with those lift blocks hitting it that hard! lol

    Laughing -no, impressed - yep. ;D
    We were all just glad it wasn't us and that you were prepared with what you needed and got it back on the trail!
    I was expecting it to be a long long day when I saw where your axle was sitting. Well done!
    Glad ya made it back safe. I think we're all accounted for now. That caps off a great Ram Jam!

    Yep. My favorite part of Wipe Out hill, the tilty spot. ;D  I'm betting the coils on Dodgeosaurus made it even more interesting.

    Yeah, LWB is great going UP Wipeout hill and even good on the first fall, but not so much going down that second fall. ;) Great job and fun to watch!

    Everyone knows that this was my first time off roading as the driver.  So I sat down quietly to watch you good drivers have fun on Wipe Out Hill.  Man, I sat there and I was NOT going to do that obstacle, nope, no way, not gonna happen.  I was good just sitting there right up until good ole sam in his cummins, limited slip mostly stock RC goes down then up Wipe  Out hill - right then and there all I could do was march to my truck, grip the wheel and focus on my spotter - yep had to do it then - thanks SAM!

    Gotta say that was so awesome and I truly appreciated everyones patience and support with my lack of driving skills.  I am hooked

    Here's the vid:

    {devil} - oh yer mighty welcome Homie  ;D   And just to set the record straight - this wasn't the first time Homer was wheeling ever - it was just the first time wheeling in the new-and-improved Levi ;)   You and yer rig did real good bud - we found some of the weak links and we'll cure 'em (this upcoming weekend if I'm not mistaken :) )

    I have to admit tho, ole Oxx did much better than I thought he would.  I was all kinds of happy with his performances.  The rear lim slip sure helped a lot going uphill when the front end got 'light'.
