I ended up dragging the corner posts in because of the rough  terrain and narrow trail!

I call this the point and shoot method for clearing a fence line

Step 1
Point the jeep towards your next cross brace.

Step 2
Drive through the brush!
A few passes are needed to bust a good trail....
(For step 2 its best if your not worried about your paint!)

Step 3
Have your assistant drive the Jeep while you hook a chain onto the big ones. 

When you have a clear trail the funs over now you have to build fence.

Is all this fencing to keep things in or out?

That big sage is good protection for cows and other critters when a cold wind is blowing.

The drawbar makes a handy anvil Clap


I noticed after running a lot in the mud it’s a good idea to clean out the hose gaurds...

If the mud ever dries up I will also clean out the floor boards!LOL

The wheel wells are self cleaning.....
When the mud builds up enough the tire touches it and knocks it loose!

Flatfender Saturday!!Clap
Started the day by checking the oil in the t-case.....
Good thing I checked... it was low. 

For this adventure we drove about 6 miles of County Road before hitting the Dirt and locking the hubs in for some desert exploring. 

I figured we would run into a little mud.
But.... we found aaalot of mud LOL




It literally took 20 minutes of spinning and sliding around to Conquer this hill!!!
I was impressed with my 3B,I worked it hard standing on the throttle in 2nd gear low range!!!
I was really stubborn and wouldn’t give up. 
I kept thinking(As I moved a few feet at a time) I’m almost to the top!!!!


Another motivator for making it to the top,was Dad would then have to try...... and with my superior horse power!! Yah I have 
a hurricane f-134 Big smile  We’re talking 72hp!!!!LOL
I was ready for him to have some trouble!

His L-134 go devil 60hp never missed a beat!!
 He came right up that muddy hill and just to show off he was using his overdrive to split gears as he went!!






Let the mud fly!!!
Oh man it’s getting hard to see....
 Time to use the ice...rrr mud scraper!!!

Kinda glad I never put a new windshield in this jeep, or I might’ve been worried about scratching it.LOL 

 I wanted to make a full loop without having to backtrack but the further we went the more snow and mud we ran into!! pretty soon dad‘s voice of reason made us turn around.
That and he only had 60hpWink 



Unlock the hubs adventure completed.

Mixing work with fun and love the wide open views  of your area. I noticed your'e just short of an even dozen jeeps, I think you should get on that A.S.A.P.
