You better hope real hard cus you would look real funny doing the Obstacle course sitting in a lawn chair !
Seatbelts are mandatory , don't know if seats are ?
Anyway I replaced front brake lining , master cyc. and top off road lights (trees branchs like things that stick up ) if I did anything else
I can't remember, these old Jeeps you can practically work on them in your sleep , well maybe half a sleep .
As with the top (upper off road lights ) I guess if you have to bust em it's better with a tree branch then the dirt and rocks that are under the tires  :( ! bin there done that .

You had me thinking all day about the seats.....UPS usually arrives around 3:30PM.......6PM came around and still no UPS truck.  I was getting ready to get my lawn chair strapped in, as tonight is my only free night to work on the Jeep before the show, when the UPS guy came knocking on my door.  New seats are in and much more comfortable than the old seats, I can lean back and actually touch my back on the seatback now!

So any tips for the obstacle course for a new guy......such as 4WD Hi or 4WD Low?

gpotts200 ; 1 ) air down , be sure you have an air gauge that reads down to 10 lbs. ( there will be air available on sight for you to air up if
                      need be to get home )
                 2 ) if you have a normal three peddle Jeep , keep your left foot off the left peddle , let the Jeep walk through .
                 3 ) watch your spotter .
                 4 ) be sure 4 wheel is locked in , and works .
                 5 ) watch your spotter .

rick ; it was on saturday or sunday , when it rolled over the crowd came running over like chickens when you throw corn out to feed them.
        when it was over it looked like a scrap metal truck dumped a small load off his truck right there where i laid  .
       
gpotts200 ; if involved in a roll over (anywhere , even if your not the driver ) do not grab hold of the roll bar above your head !
                 YOU WILL DO JUST FINE .

Thanks for the tips....I would not have thought of most of those items being new to this.

What I did to the jeep today......got to clean a few eggs out of the interior from a prankster last night.
