I didn't screw myself too bad. I made it back OK I gave up early when I noticed my clutch starting to fail so thats when I decided to head home. Still made it all the way back to NY just fine but that smell of clutch is still in the air.

Did you go into any of the mud holes there?  Thats normaly an easy way to loose a clutch.  Mud and grass/sticks get packed between the clutch fingers and pressure plate housing causing the clutch not to fully engage.  How did everybody else do?

No real mud holes just lots of slipping clutch cause of gearing issue. Brent lost a lifter or something of the nature and Mark put it on its side. Otherwise it was a great time and I was impressed with what my jeep would go through. I need to install gears, front locker and a trail cage soon.

There are three standard ways that I know of:

1)  Lie and dont tell her.
2)  Tell her that it is "Essential Equipment"  You need that rollcage to protect your body incase something may happen.  You need the lower gears so you wont burn up your clutch again.  You need the lockers to keep you from having excessive tire speed and reving you engine to high. Be creative and make the consequences of not having your "Essential Equipment" dire.
3)  This is the best one...  Get her to love wheeling as much as you do.

#1 doesnt work if she has the checkbook and pays the credit card bill
#2 works well - it's how I bought the trailer and roll cage.  she can't argue with safety, unless you are worth more to her dead.
#3 is never an option. clearly josh has not been married long enough.

Another option is to not take "no" for an answer. Keep asking until you wear her down and she says "yes".  Thats a little trick I learned from my 5 year old.

There is always the expensive way of buying something that she really wants and hopefully that overshadows what you bought for yourself.  "Here's some diamonds.... by the way, I bought new tires for the Jeep."
