Doing 55 mph in a tropical rain storm at 4:30am. Full time 4x4 never a slip or a slide in 9 years. Jeep spun clockwise on a 10 lane highway (toll road) at the 270 mark I made contact with a 30 foot high concrete wall.

Bounced off and slid to a stop after completing the 360.

Got out, checked the damage, cursed several times. Got back in the Jeep and drove to work.


After the wreck

Also broke the drivers seat. Pulled one bolt through the cheap-a$$ front mount.


Many months after the repair

I would have to say The moment I backed the Jeep out of the garage AFTER 7+ hours of mounting everything up for my lift...in 30* weather! I installed EVERYTHING myself, front coils, shocks, rear leafsprings. What a satisfying moment it was to drive it down the street...it was NOT just an SUV anymore.

testing my first set of mud tires and realizing my t-case chain was streched and i couldnt use 4wheeldrive
I would have been pissed, I hate testing out new stuff and failing in the process. Quite a common occurrence for me :D

I would have to say getting my Jeep parked ontop of some concrete tubes at Ks Rocks Park with no struggle then later the same day went up a Black Diamond Ledge (says requires lockers and 35" tires) with Open diffs and 31" tires, Both with video footage and multiple witnesses
