The skid plate you guys noticed on my frontend is a Tomken piece that they call a "tierod skidplate", but it actually protects the steering box and the bottom of the rad, better than the tierod...



If you get one, make sure you weld the rear legs of the skid to the frame, instead of using the self-tapping bolts Tomken supplies. I sheered off the Tomken bolts the first time I hit a rock face with the skid. Since I welded the legs, however, it can take one hell of a pounding.

Yep...

And you don't need to worry about the welds making the plate hard to remove if you have to, because the plate bolts to the legs on the lower ends, anyhow.

Here' s another couple of crawlin' shots from yesterday's run (Aug 18th).

I had a guest shotgun rider along from the Calgary Jeep Club yesterday, too (Darrell Lawlor). He just happens to own a Silver Con himself. He seemed to dig the abundance of rock we have here, down East.

I found a rock.


A close up for you disbelievers.

Okay does sandstone really count as rock?

It's got the word "stone" in it doesn't it? A rock's a rock.

Actually I heard a rumor that there was another one down south somewhere. I've seen other small rocks, but I believe they are imported. I don't recall any volcano's around so I know the lava rocks that I got from Wal-mart are imported.

OK, Ill play along
This was my first day out with the 35s, so I decided to see if I could get on top of a 3' tall rock. I must admit, I was showing off for the lovely passenger.

Excellent shots!

I'm lovin' it.!

I'm goin' on another rock run this coming Monday. Looking at your pics is just making me more excited about the run.

The rig looks sweet too, by the way!

I have come to the conclusion that rock crawling is the 'heroin' of all the offroad addictions. One good hit of it and you're hooked for life.
