    Default Kingston Peak to Yankee Hill



    Ran this 7/20/2013 around 3:30pm, wife needed to get ready for Aidan's B-Day after a morning of shopping, so impromptu run!! This is what I call my "loop run", start from my house(below the Kingston trailhead), head up Kingston(FS 353) from Alice go over to Apex and back up to Yankee. Took 722.1 to 175.3D to 175.3E. Carnage, on the 175.3E leg up the back side of Yankee, tight turning spot led to me watching the passenger rear, and subsequently tearing the front driver fender right off! Got the fixed up yesterday, until I get the flat fenders for the front and rear, damn Tupperware!!

    I think your FJ would have no problems at all with any of the trails in that area.

    I knew a couple of guys on a different forum that stripped off all of the Tupperware on day one of owning their Jeeps and ran them that way! Mine are on the chopping block, but not high on the priority list right now.

    Nice "fix-it job" you did there!

    Don and Gary, thanks so much for the offer!! My wife was stunned , I will be doing the flat tube fenders at some point, as all of them rattle. The wife wants the step sliders first.

    If you would bring it, I will buy it from you. Thanks again Don and Gary!!

    I took it all off to see how it looked, the wife and I agreed, it seems that rocks would definitely fly up to the windshield if they were totally off. I did look cool though! I pride myself on being able to fix about anything, comes from 25 years of plumbing/construction.
