    So over the Thanksgiving weekend, gathered up some family and headed out to Borrego Springs, CA just East of San Diego. We hit the mud caves as we usually do but this was a chance to see what this 'Beast' can do.
    Pretty much drove it on roads any car can do, but then there were the areas that were a bit rocky, bumpy and sometimes a little sketchy. But the Beast prevailed!
    Took it down a spot called "Diablo Drop" and was perfect opportunity to see how my 4-weel drive was working. Well it passed and having posi helped out. Complete with Dana 60 rear end. I'll try and upload the video, but for now, a few shots of 'The Beast' along with my Uncles '89 sub Scottsdale with 44" Military run-flats.
