Hi Folks,

So Finally everybody started looking for OTR spots and doing 4WD. The cult is increasing. Great show.

I was worried about that too, and it's not even my car

Nowhere near as OTR-capable as the jeeps, isn't it?

Looks killer, yes, but it is outright dangerous in the current form. No roll-over protection nor are there any seatbelts. Ask Allan how many people have fallen off the Jeep (including the day before ).

Dude's got spirit for sure. And he doesn't think twice before tackling the same climbs that our Jeeps do. He'll take an alternate road only after trying out the main path first.

@Nandish too

Well, I guess if you want to have fun you have to accept the small hazards that go with it! Mind you, I DONT like my car getting scratched but...

@Extreme Power,

Hi nice pics ya, your Jeep looks really amazing with the whole spring over axle. Does it hinder the road drive capabilities of the Jeep as in body roll and all?

I suggest you keep the Jeep as it because it sure catches the eye. I bet its a chick magnet.

Regards,

Autocraze

Hi Allan great looking jeep, Love those seats. you guys had a lot of fun for sure the terrain is a superb offroad track. Did you try the slush in the pond post some pictures if you did. Now i regret of not having my jeep ready and accepting your invitation for the OTR. Here are some pictures of a SPOA setup, might help you get a little more articulation and might lessen the strain on the steering.
