    I got the into the mud pit half way up the doors and covered the left head light. Had to pull all the plugs after getting winched out by Matt (BabyBlue) to make sure I diden't suck any water in (a little came out when I cranked it), Than in the mud pit again it cought on FIRE! 3 Guys were on it with fire extinguishers withen 15sec (Estabon, me, and some guy we did not know). The fire was caused by tranny fluid being shot out of the dip stick tube onto the hedders. What fun!

    Hey Matt I got most of your right tail might sitting right here... well pieces of it... you want it back? LOL.... [​IMG]

    I also found a couple lug nuts in Tank Trap, part of a broken tow hook, valve stem and a part of what appears to be a Ford door handle.... any takers of this stuff? [​IMG]

    I didn't put my Blazer thru the gauntlets like you guys did. I only got a few pinstripes from some trail brush, and a chip in the windshield from a flying rock thrown by an 18 wheeler while on the way home.
