..well, this is basically going to show some of the minor use and abuse the truck has had in the past, and will post up anything present that will eventually arise as the present build is completed.
Just out playing one afternoon after work, nothing major but was still a blast non the less. No action shots.....slightly difficult while driving.
Was all good till the neighbors started complaining about the mud all over the street where I was parking. I just didn't want it in my driveway is all.........
Stuff was like glue, guessing the fender flares didn't quite cover enough to save the mirror from damnation.
This was at a local mud bog.....no, not entered. Just drove into the event and it was a better event than the event itself. Although.....there was some nasty nasty carnage, as you'll see below.
This is what you get when you're pedal to the mat and beyond, catch the ruts from a huff loader dead on, catch a couple feet of air and manage to make it through it all....or at least to the other side where it's dry. Only one problem....you have to get back across to get home! Ya....good luck with that!
Hours later, I ended up with a broken front axle shaft (no big deal really), but when I removed the front axle and reassembled the mess....the wheel bearing had self destructed as well so when we drove away...a couple feet later the drivers front wheel wanted to pretty much rip off. This ended in nothing but carnage. Next was to get the huff loader to drag me backwards through this mess cause the truck and trailer could not get to me where I was and with the bog of a driveway the way it was...it would have been worse yet. This ultimately got me out, but nearly put me on my side on 2 separate occasions. Needless to say, she made it home........on a trailer (ughh), and thanks to a few buddies that saved my ass that afternoon/night my truck was safe at home. Very interesting Sunday evening...that is without a doubt.
This was just the entry into the event the next day. I know it don't seem like much from this picture....but the ruts and bottomless slop was fairly intense in spots. It was the massive rut that they left with the huff half way through while I was doing probably upwards of 80 when I hit it that did me in. There was some serious air to be had at that moment......a friend of mine that had never been offroading before I'm sure thought the end was near that day.
Here you can see that things were a bit more serious on the other end of that upper picture. There were some larger trucks there that were having some issues as well. Regarless.....it was a blast!
