    Man that was fun. Good Shots Boss. Look forward to seeing the rest. Here are some pics of me on 11 (Guardrail, Hellicopter pad) as I'm about to rip the side off my truck that I was sent yesterday.

    What I hate is NO picture really lets you know how steep 9 and ll is. Titanic was at about 45 degrees when he lifted that wheel. To bad there isn't a picture when he was comming up and hit the tree. He had air at one point under 3 tires just before he poped the log and sent that guy flying. Hopefully it will be on the film that film crew was getting.

    I don't need no damn shop manual, I got a pornographic memory.

    Wow, cringing is the right word. Takes a lot of something to do that to your K5. Not sure what that 'something' is tho..........[​IMG]

    BigJBear on Saturday. I was riding with him and his wife Saturday. Was going just a little too fast and the truck took a funky bounce. She and I both thought we were over and off the mountain hehehe. We could feel the suspension unload. BigJ got it stopped and creeped us out of it. It was a crowbar moment.
    Friday when I was on Guard rail they tell me the only thing that kept me from going over was the winch line. I was being pulled up by my Bud and his 8274. I was on the throttle helping out the winch and caught traction so the winch was unloaded. One of the guys watching said "Damn good thing you were on the other end of that 8274 (fastest unloaded line speed winch). At one point you had air under both passengerside tires and the winch caught up and pulled you back down". (BigJ, Ken said that) I never thought it felt that far over but it was bouncing like all hell and I had no point of refference since out the windsheild all I could see was tree tops.

    I don't need no damn shop manual, I got a pornographic memory.
