And then theres the carnage report It was a bad day to be a cj5 Lee managed to nail a tree (on my side of course) doing just a bit of damage to the frame and breaking the windshield in the process Tom managed to get the same tree but not near as bad. Lees fan took out the fan shroud and then we figured out later as to why Tom lost the feed line to his fuel pump possibly due to a broken motor mount Then we found out why the fan was hitting Turns out the frame had a crack in it on one side and all of the hammering on the root wads finished it off and managed to caryy over to the other side and almost break the jeep in half This is why the driveling fell out on the last climb out of the trails. Luckily we were able to stop before the frame completly broke and with some clever bracing we were able to pull him up to the gravel road and he drove it back to camp All in all a great day even with the carnage and A big thanks to the just jeep junkies for keeping this trail open for all of us
