i got a decent night pic of josh flexing. I'll post it up.
FWIW, a class 8.8 bolt has a yield strength of ~92,000 PSI while a true grade 8 bolt has a yield strength of ~130,000 PSI.

From what I have heard, metric 8.8 is similar to a grade 5, and metric 10.9 is similar in strength to grade 8.

Re: My "Hero" Blog

So heres some pics from PC the other day with Connor. Unfortunately I didn't get any pics of Connor, because he doesn't wheel and was afraid of scratching his barbie jeep.



dat ass


Goin up the far right side of the obstacle course







Hit up the rock pile too




And finally here is a pic showing the bend I put in my track bar to clear the pumpkin. Never got around to posting it before.




All in all it was actually pretty fun out there. Ran the whole day with 35 PSI in the tires and still did pretty well!

Re: My "Hero" Blog

Your Jeep actually did pretty well. Seems like our wheelbase disagreement has yet to be settled though.



I took a bunch more pics but they're all on black and white film. If any turn out I might be able to post them in a few weeks.
