Mostly others peoples Jeeps, but we ran the same lines and trails as these guys... (except for the one where the burgundy Cherokee is parked on a big rock!) We're basically stock aside from tires and some armor. The black Jeep was setup like ours (31" trXus and TurboCity rock rails). He had run this trail previously and it helped having him right in front of us. We got to see the right and wrong lines by watching him.We had 11 Jeeps on this ride which really made for a slow day ( 7 Wranglers, 2 Cherokees, 2 Grands). However, everyone on the ride was cool, so the time spent sitting while people were spotted was a lot of fun. Fixes/Damages: (none for us, fortunately)- one unseated front coil on a TJ (5 min w/ a HiLift)- over the course of the day the big burgundy Cherokee removed all 4 of his fender flares while stuffing his tires- big burgundy Cherokee toasted his alternator by hitting the mud puddles too fast- burgundy Grand got a 15" long tree kiss on the right rear wheelwell. This guy was nuts (you can guess how fast he must have hit the mud to cover his Jeep in the P 4 pic).
Watching a couple of guys with receiver hitches convinced me I will definitely go the integrated route as opposed to the kind that hangs below the bumper.
The day was a blast. If anyone in the Atlanta area wants to join next time, drop me an email. I think that crowd goes out at least once a month.
Also, they talk about the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. By doing a search on the net, I found a few other sites that actually talk about that act with more depth. Basically, it says that a dealer cannot automatically say that your warranty is voided by the installation of aftermarket parts. Here are some of the sites that I read about it:

Like I said, this is pretty interesting information. If I missed something and got the gist of the act wrong, please let me know. Laters!!
