In April, myself and two friends ( one being creepycrawler) took our rusted and ragged out rigs on a journey from Lancaster, Oh down into Va, and ran Potts Mountain Jeep trail, Ivy Branch, and beyond along the way.   It was a 4 day almost 800 mile trip, with no tow rigs, no support vehicles, and only the gear we could carry behind our seats.

The rigs:
88 Bronco II - Exploerer 4.0 Early bronco d44 and 9inch. 4.88 gears, dual lockers, 35 inch MTRs -
88 Suzuki Samurai - 1.6 tracker engine, 31 inch mud tires, 4 inch lift springs dual lockers
86 Geo Tracker -  Toyota axles, 3 link front,  265-75-16 mud tires, dual lockers

We took a lot of video along the way and have it broke up into 5 to 10 minute segments.   Some is more exciting than others but we try to highlight each day.   Still have a couple more videos to edit and get posted ill add later.

our trailer:

I've seen videos of Jeep's doing that and ya'lls rigs are doing well. Really impressed with the tracker.
