Whoops!, 4-Wheel & Off-Road

I don't know which was worse-the ride in or the ride out.

Apparently the folks at Rockport decided "Pitbull's Revenge" was getting too easy and took a track-hoe down there to make things more difficult. My "5-Day XJ" (less than $1,000 invested) flopped on its side near the end of the trail. A few club members pushed me back over and I was on my way. At the top we noticed that the front end drooped far enough for the left coil spring to come out of the bucket and that the right rear spring pack was wasted.
