ok here a a couple of pics I did not get under the jeep to take pics but here a some of the out side.
engine tilting, brokenmounts.
bent crossmenber, from recovery.
front pic no real damage but I am glad I built that bumper I saved use, if not for that bumper we would have been on our roof.
so am I the only one who thinks you need toi go back and take pics of the cliff?? or maybe a movie re-enactment??
glad you're OK and the jeep isn't TOO damaged.

Give your description of the events, I'm surprised you didn't sustain more damage. Have you checked the frame for bends or creases yet? Hopefully all check out well for you.
By the way, your front license plate is certainly appropriate.

yes it is, and no still waiting for the nasty rotten liver smell to disapate... :( I will get pics of the cliff as soon as possible so that means when I get the rig back on or off road, btw I ordered 4 pair of 100w off-road lights 2 for every direction, the reason we wheel at night is that it is too dam hot in the day time.
