Good on ya...a reasonably stockish XJ can be quite impressive on the trail -- I always consider them to be "point and shoot" over an obstacle!  I used to have a 4.0 TJ (33s on 4.56 axles with ARB lockers) and had a lot of fun with it.

Wonder where the waterline is...


At about the top of said mast.  How much padding do you have to put in that ductwork to survive the first rinse&spin cycle?

In Topic: Hit and run (video)! What is your opinion about this powerboater?

Two high speed powerboats hitting each other?


Does anybody really care?

No.  Not particularly.

What are the physiological implications of not being able to get your legs above your heart (or your head below your heart) for 4+ months?  What about not being able to extend full range of motion on any appendages?  Seriously--I'm in favour of bleeding edge efforts to demonstrate human capability...but this seems somewhat misguided.

At a protest hearing long ago, in a galaxy far, far away.  Incident was related to a Port/Starboard collision at the shrouds...


Q:  Did you hail "Protest", or words to that effect?

A (from Starboard skipper):  Yeah....I yelled, "What the fuck are you doing?"
