Default Some updated pics of mine in the mud..

These were from our canada run. Sorry about the size, this is the size of my desktop at work, so I'm killing two birds with one stone..

This was in early may, north of the Soo..

As bad as some look, she never got stuck. Although the one pic where I'm so far down into the mud, it pushed the front clip on solid ground, so the radiator shroud bent into the fan.. (Taurus fan going in soon...)

Enjoy.

Tow rig setup (96 V10 dodge... doubles as my place to sleep :) )




Still clean:



Not anymore..

BTW, for this trip, I had replaced my old 22R with a 22RE, and swapped axles to an IFS rear, and 4.88 gears front/back (front lock-rite, rear spool).

The 100:1 gearing was awesome, and the truck worked excellent all weekend..

Looks like a kick ass time !!! Did you ever figure out some kind of rear fender to avoid the constant rear bathing ??

Not yet.

I just got my plasma cutter, which should make it easy to cut some diamond plate to fill in my fenders. I'm going to lower the gas tank a little, then put a shelf across the top of it, for a tool box, air tank, battery box, and water tank(plumbed to sprayers). Also build a better spare tire mount than my ratchet straps :tonka: . So at that point, I'll fill in everything with diamond plate.

No, not stuck. It took a few runs backward to forward, but was able to pop out of that, and drive up and out.
