I got this message from the Pirate4x4 website and thought the 4x4 users here might enjoy it.

Ok folks, it's time to let the cat out of the bag! We are here in Reno, NV for "Reno Rocks"... Think of it as the Hot August Nights of Rock Crawling. If you're not going to be here, you're missing out. But fear not, because we are going to be doing something that has never been done before at a rock sports event. We will be bringing you live video coverage. So what's so new about that, you ask?

We have contracted with Aspect Studios (Krawler Nation) to bring you live, unprecedented coverage of this weekend's event. We will have four high definition studio cameras on the course with a professional production crew. The production engineer will switch from camera to camera live on the fly to bring you non-stop action, and even live interviews. The live video will begin on Friday morning at 10:00am. and run through the final shootout on Sunday afternoon. We will also bring you live coverage of the Friday night pool party and bikini contest. ;)

So please, tell your friends about this event. And even more important, please visit Polyperformance, our sponsor for this epic coverage!

Thers are not many rocks to climb in the Chicago area. I guess that I will pass on the project!!

Not too many rocks in Michigan either but wouldn't it be nice to be able to climb the ones that are there? ;)

Most of the rocks in Illinois can be climbed with a stock 4x4. Like everything else there ARE exceptions.

Well I sent the last payment on the Jeep in this month. Time to start lifting and putting on some cool bumpers. After seeing some of the post here and how well the bumpers turned out I think I might give it a shot myself.

I'm definitely going to check the site tonight. I have a home made Hummer, (BUMMER). It is setup for mud and sand as it is too wide to be a competitive rock crawler. I do have a 12 ton wench to make up for this deficiency.

Have a truggy project as well. It's a 1991 K5 Blazer that's been chopped narrowed and caged.
I built the trailer it's sitting on also.

Very cool door/window work there. Your visiblity is much improved. I like the tube work in the back too. Those hummer BLs on there? I have a set from TrailWorthy but I'm going to have to sell them. I'm throwing full widths under the CJ next month so the 5 x 5.5s have to go. Very cool rig sir!

Yes they are surplus double beadlocks that were modified by 66CJDean on pirate4x4.com. He added 3/8" centers and welded a stiffening ring around the lip for protection. The windows are 1/8" polycarbonate

I bet that was a job narrowing that body and still retaining the body mounts,if you did.Or did you have to relocate,or make your own body mounts? Nice job on the roll bars and all of the tubing.Also great job on the trailer.
