    Well we went to the nationals, as usual there were a ton of COOL trucks.We had a good time,but did;nt get to meet any fellow members. I did see some trucks from low country swampers (I think someone mentined that was thier club)
    My favorite were the REAL 4WD trucks not the super shiny ones. So did anybody else make it ? If you did what did you think of the nationals ?

    I didn't make it cause I went to Tellico for the work weekend and some wheelin. Some of our club attended, in fact one of our club members managed to roll his stretched, white CJ7 off the top of the rock pile!! little bit of damage, but nothing real bad. Just funny to see on video!!/forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I was there but didn't think that it was as good as 2 years ago. There were alot of cool real world trucks but there were also a few assmunches with trailer queens that had 2 or more stacked blocks in the rear with 40" custom springs in front. The guy that had the black Z71 overheard me saying that those 40" springs probaly ride like a covered wagon and was very quick t tell me that it rides like Caddy /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif. It was nice to check out some propane conversions /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif. I didn't see a singe 49" IROK or even a military Micellin /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif.

    I saw that thing down @ gate 2. No drive shafts and no heads on the engine. Why even bring it /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif.

    Try the Tater Skins @ Charlie T's /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif.

    I agree it was fun,but it wasn't as good as it has been in the past. I know the Z71 your talking about I've seen it the past couple of years. could you imagine taking that thing up a hill sideways ??? /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif You should have told him a caddy would probally perform better off road (if he even knows what that term means)
    I geuss I missed the s10 with 50 something size tires, but I thought for sure I would see some 49" irocks....not a one.

    missed the 10 door burb , rolling on a 10 bolt with 44's. Just curious where they the truxus tires ? Seems like that was what the majority of the show quens were running. I hear that they are only good for the street, I will admit MY truck was a FORMER show truck that never even saw dirt. I am in the processs of changing it over to a REAL WORLD 4 WD.The day after the show my son & I took it BIG TIME MUD BOGGIN.
