I was there on sunday but up the snow....
i saw ya head up the creek run breifly with the '70 chev a couple toys and an fj.
[stupid]

Oh and I am enjoying the pics
thanks, next time ill bring a real camera lol.
we were up there by about 1030 and left at about 3 so we missed the majority of the trucks.
if you get jim to pull ya out, (big white superduty on 40s) make sure you got good strong tow points lol cause he`ll rip your fucking bumper clear off lol
ya he didnt pull me out he pulled the new GM out by his tow hitch. but that things a beast, me and another gm couldnt yank the guy out and Jim did it first try.
ya know if ya put a lift in you wont get high centered as much. good pics though
yeah i dont wanna put a lift on the ttb though.. gonna yank it and put a solid axle which should give it enough lift. i got less then 5000km on rebuilt front end with receipts so i might be able to get some money back when i yank the ttb out.
nice pics man remember momentum is key in the mud
ya the only way i got stuck is from crawlin into the rut, from the other way i just powered thru and up outta the rut but crawlin in lost my momentum.
ill know better next time. had a great time though and lookin forward to the next adventure.

anyone down for some easy peasy exhaust work?
my exhaust isnt welded or clamped on its just exhaust mani to a single to dump.
and then the pipe with my cat and muffler just slides onto that, no clamp no weld. is held in place by just a rubber hangar, and it likes to shimmy out when i hit bumps.

thrillbilly
03-02-2009, 11:41 PM
i could just c clamp it, but id rather find someone to quick weld it in place.
