    Another "Allan" weekend in pictures. Yes, this was a "work" weekend. Not play.

    There's no clearance issues here... so 44's will fit on the rear:

    Then the neighbors asked if they could run snowmobiles across the water-filled mud pits. I said sure.

    Ok, so I had to take the Truck Blazer through too.

    Stopped for a lunch break the next day.

    They are 44" Gumbo Mudders that have been grooved out.

    Here's the plan: Keep it as it is, and set up a PA system in it and use it as a portable announcers booth at the mud races we hold.

    Then, I strip it, and sell the tranny, rear end, frame and keep the 454 for my Camo Blazer.

    by far the best picture is when you have it in reverse and you're spraying your open cab, that gave me a smile.

    I like your Monsterbaygo!!

    That looks like so much fun it should be illegal! :laugh: --I'd love to have been there!..that RV is tempting me to pursue the one offered to me free while back--I'd love to cut it like yours and make a beavertail ramp truck out of the rear section,and leave enough of the RV behind the seats for a sleeping and cooking area...You could use yours for a portable stage for a band to play on!(know any artists??)

    I love the shots of the roostertails,and that thing looks cool with 44's on it!--you really should put a back wall on the "cab" though,so you wont get drenched with mud --or worse,a rock in the back of your head!--be careful having all that fun--your pictures brought a smile to my face!! :grin:
