The Cliffs Insane Terrain Park - Illinois - 8/23

This place was muddy and very tight in places! I had a good time other than breaking some stuff. First was the rear bumper cover being pulled up and out, cracked the corner of a tail light and broke most of the retaining clips. Next was the nice gentle slide back and to the right against a tree pushing in my right rear passenger door handle. Followed shortly thereafter by a nose dive that bent my lower radiator support. I need more armor...

This is how it all started.


We found this guy stranded with a dead engine, so we helped him out.


This first hill was very steep, it was more of a controlled slide.


And from behind just before going over


The tree that got me.


And this is where I bent my rad. support

well, after the clean up. it's not too bad. The door should be easy to fix, and maybe the rad support too. Then I just need to buy a whole bunch of plastic clips for the bumpers and fender flares, and probably some extra. Not too much will be spent on repairs. I'll probably look into fabbing some front and rear armor, and get some rock rails.
