    I went wheelin' yesterday with a group of local Iowa guys at an OHV park near Solon, IA. The plan was to meet up around 9am and hit the trails. As soon as I arrived, I had a few guys waiving me down because they were already stuck. After pulling him out, the Burb was slightly muddy.

    Almost all of the other vehicles in the group were Jeeps, but I didn't hold that against them. :D

    Chris using the go pedal:

    Me climbing the same rut:

    After hitting some easier stuff, we decided to hit a gully that was quite greasy.

    Me pulling Chris out:

    The stock pickup in the background was with us and was buried too. He got winched out by Chris.

    Same spot, different angle:

    Brent (8_YOUR_H2 here on CK5) has the black Rubicon.....he had to winch himself out.

    Here is one of the many hill climbs we did. This stock Jeep made it that far and got strapped the rest of the way up:

    A view from the top of me climbing the same hill:

    One of the guys who was pretty familiar with 600 Acres took us to a steep ravine to cross.

    Brent heading in:

    Me heading in:

    Almost planted the bumper:

    Brent got stuck in a nasty hole....the Beast to the rescue:

    I only got stuck twice.....both times were within an hour of leaving.

    All in all it was a great day. The Burb did excellent on its shakedown run. I wheeled all day without breaking parts and drove 80 miles home with out a hitch. :D

    I am extremely pleased with the MT/Rs in the goo. A Detroit for the rear is in order as well as a better cooling system to keep the 388 happy during high RPM blasts. :D

    Dang I gotta get my JUNK running....The Jeepers would have gone crazy with two 'Burb tow rigs around :grin:

    Did you get video footage? I'd like to hear that 388 screaming at red line :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

    Ben says those MTR's worked great in the mud. What kind of mud or tires are all you nay-sayers using????

    Nice 1st Gen burb. Not sure when the burbs started so not sure if 1st gen is appropriate. Looks like fun anyway. Now just to get mine out of the garage.

    Nice pics dude, looks like fun!
    yah man throw a locker in the rear of that thing and you'll be suprised how much of a difference it'll make.
    I just got back from doing some mudding today at hollister hills.. my powertank was dry so that means no arb for the front, i'd go into some mud holes thinking i'd blast right outta them... wrong. Everything i've done before i've been spoiled with my front arb locker ON. its a challange to run a trip without that. i was getting stuck where i know a front locker would have made the difference in that mud. :thumb:

    Unfortunately No. There wasn't really anybody "extra" to run the camera, and I was too busy driving. :D

    Thanks everyone for the comments! :waytogo:

    Here are a few more pics!

    One of the guys in our group was wheeling this white Grand Cherokee. He popped a tree and lost the bumper and grill.

    Chris in the green Jeep did return the favor by winching me out at the end of the day. :bow: :bow:

    Once again it was a great time and thanks for the compliments. :D

    Nice lookin burb man, 67-72 is the best body style for chevy's, then again I'm a little biased.
