we had fun even tho the weather wasnt as great as promised . Wes & Donnie kept a HOT fire going all afternoon .There were more people there than I thought would be. my spitfire's new vortec v-6 spewed a litlle anti freeze in the am breakin trails in the heavy snow we watched a fulsize bronco blow a rear end on a picker valley hill I think we all said " ouch " at the same time. It was great watchin GEEZER & ELVIS climb the same hill
with totaly opposite rigs altho they share similar body work. It did look easier with fat 49s" as opposed to skinny 34s"

I had a great time out there. It was a good beat down to see what needed to be changed before dog party. A+ day in my book

I had a good time. It was the first time I actually managed to get my truck somewhere and actually wheel it.

I started having issues with my drivetrain moving around a lot. The whole thing was pretty much resting on my front driveshaft sitting on top of my trans crossmember at one point though. I had some throttle issues from it too

Edit!

I just tried to move my truck and found some good carnage!
