Did you make it through? How did other vehicles do?

Ha,ha..give me a little time and Ill send more..just back from 4 days out and zi have to get everything in order at the office.

I finally did make it through, but wasnt easy, mud was really slippery, it was deep and a wrangler before me had broken a bumper thats why the guide (guy in black shirt) was giving the instructions..some flat places were easier with momentum...in that place with speed i was concerned about jumping and then landing in the wrong spot.

There were some toyotas (sw4), some hilux, land cruiser, vw amarok, kia, land rover,etc, 11 vehicles total, great fun, great driving and lots of mud and almost non existing trails.

Ill post some more as soon as possible.

Nice. Any damage to the radiator?

I cringed at one point. The Chief lower guard would have been nice to have.

ps. Like the bloke with the machete, true jungle trip.

I agree...still waiting for the lower guard from Chief to be available, no damage underneath, radiator or anything..except at one place were the mud got even more slippery that I ended up against a fallen tree..and did some damage to the right doors..nothing huge..but still will need to be repaired.
