    Its been raining like hell for a couple days here so I went to check out my mud hole today!

    The mud isnt very gooy going in cus its ealy so I head to what I know will be a good bog in a couple of weeks. I get the mud flying past the windshield on both sides with only rear drive working.. as I started to pick up speed the wheel spin began to stop so I stopped in what turned out to be 12 inches of gooo... I am running some very well used hummer tires in the rear right now and they looked like slicks.. Stopping was a bad choice,,, nooo I had too keep the mud flying. When I tried to get it started going again I kept getting dropped back into my old ruts.. rocking was getting me no where.. I had managed to get myself hung up on a small tree lying wedged into the mud betwwen my hard break line and the axle wedged into the bed...I didnt know about the break line till after it was broken /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif All right next to the building my boss works in /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I was in direct view of where the execs have smoke breaks..

    I love the rain...



    I can say the gov locker on the 14 bolt works great but, not having matching gear ratios sucks..I need my front drive back. I woudnt have needed to winch myself out ... New tires for mud too.. bald tires and mud..mmmmm bad
