Heres what i have so far..

Got these while i was safely on the other side after first crossing..


All goin well so far... Then My cousin in his suburban decided he didn't wanna cross, so we decided to cross and go somewhere else. I didn't make it back across, and my cousin sending pics later, but picture your beers floating around the jeep, wife standing on drivers seat, and me sitting on the hood with winch remote in hand like i was riding a blue sleigh


This is my cousin stuck (cousins boyfriend driving).. he forgot to put it in 4x4, bad mistake out there, that silt is like quicksand.. took bout 3 hours and 4 straps to get him out..you may notice the left headlight is missing, reason to hang an old towel or something on the strap while being pulled, the bid d-ring flew back and took out his headlight and bucket.. My cousin, she's pretty mad at him bout this point, lmao..


This ford didn't have 4 wheel drive, bad move, lol.. using the yota as an anchor, i managed to winch him out of the hole, then got infront of him and towed him to gravel. He tried to offer money, took a bottle of beer instead![36] [31] [31] [31] [31] [31] [31] [31] [31] [31]
Note to self, "don't eat " special muffin before wheeling, some real dumb shit and bad situations seem real funny to me, but not to wife"!!![f] [f] [f] All in all, had a great day, definitely leaving chainsaw in jeep as part of the gear!!. Made a great fire. (not as good as Deans tho)
Also, buy better batteris, i swear im only gettin bout 20 pics per set.
One more pic....
Cousins BF after a cupcake, lmao[36] [36] [36] [36] he didn't move for 2 hours..
The cupcakes reminded me of Buckleys, tasted like crap, but worked real good!![41] [41] [41] [41] [41] [41]

When i got to other side, i took it out of 4 wheel, didn't need it to continue, and forgot to put it back in before crossin again, my air intake is up high, but the fan splashed water into it. Stalled fast, and I didn't try and restart till i got to dry land, cleaned out water, dumped some VP racin fuel into carb and she fired up right away. NO HYDRO lock, [36] [36] [36] [36] [36]

Well, a snatch block woulda been cool, but I did get one today, with bearings, $3.00 from clem!!!. I'm tryin to get ahold of caleb and his buddy to see if they liked the "cupcakes"....I have one left, any takers????????


03-13-2006, 04:44 PM
lol think i will pass on the cupcake ther Jim

yeah snatch block would have been nice even if we had to connect to another truck

well i guess that would have been our only option

03-13-2006, 05:03 PM
You still have that 5.0 for sale?? and do you have, or can get the computer for it? My engines gonna die soon, so I'm lookin at options.. Gimme a call, I'm on my way over to my shop right now..
