I noticed that one of the rock buggies is Justin Tune of Mountain View, MO.  I was curious if this is the same Justin Tune that is a member of our club?  I noticed this on the members rigs  page

Good eye Brant.  I wondered the same thing and Justin just happened to call me this morning to ask me if any of us were going.  It is his new buggy!  I told him I probably wouln't be going but some were so whoever gets to go be sure and introduce yourselves and cheer him on!

No one conquered Bounty Hill!! I got some video I will post when I get home. We had a great time saw a lot of rigs on their side, a couple upside down, & 1 or 2 roll over. Fortunately no one was hurt. It rained for a little bit & we got a little wet, but then it cooled off and made for a nice day.

Tune gave it a great try and ended up on his side and Jordan Tanner almost made it after everyone left.  Ty said this morning if he had gone another 8"-10" when he jumped the ledges he would have made it.   We wheeled all day Friday then I worked my booth Saturday till Bounty Hill time, then I lead a group up Pure Hell this morning then we all went and climbed the big rock wall and loaded up and headed home.  It was the BEST event I've been to ever and had something for everyone.  Even had bounce arounds set up for the kids and some great food vendor trailers.  I can't wait till the next one.

Tune's rig really impressed me. He definately has the power to get the tires moving.  I don't know if I have ever seen anyone stay on the rev limiter for so long. :D  I had an opportunity to talk to Justin Tune about his rig.  The info I had read about "Hill Billy Deluxe" said he was running a 500 horse LS6.  Tune informed me that he spun 3 rod bearings on his first trip out and now has a 6.0L LS motor.  He is planning to rebuild and stroke the LS6.  I had a blast, got to see a lot of amazing rigs, got to meet Justin Tune, got to visit with some fellow Christian Crawlers, and I will definately be there next year.  I posted some pics http://www.christiancrawlers4x4.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=13673563 & I upload some video to Youtube.  The video is kinda shaky, I had my 5 year old son running circles around my feet and I was using my point and shoot camera.  I really should have brought my tripod :/

The white Cherokee in the rock garden was running some Rock Solid Fabworks custom cut weld-on beadlocks. :D

I recognized the beadlocks from a thread on Arkansas Crawlers.
