    Today my son Matt(Bullet) ran is first mud bog with the Jimmy since we have completed the lift, tires, etc. He took 2nd place in the 34" to 42" class which started out with about 30 trucks. He got beat by 11" by a long bed Chevy P/U with a 454 and 39.5 Boggers.

    Kinda makes me want to replace the tired old 350 with something with a little more hp.

    It is all on video. The tires are 37x12.5x16 SSR's, and did a terrific job.

    Yeah, never had so much fun with so many hillbillies /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif This was my first competition of this matter, and really had no clue what to do besides line up put it in 4wd and mash the skinny pedal. Everyone in the mud bog had two runs to get the farthest in the 110ft pit. The pit was develish, first a mud ramp into the pit that would make you nose dive into black clay then evey 10-15ft another hill or ramp to make someone high center and the last 10ft of the run was a 6ft pit that could swallow any 44in bogger. When it came to my turn I put the 241 in 4Lo and and 1st gear, on the first run I went 83.6ft and was in 6th place, I was not happy /forums/images/icons/mad.gif At the time the furthest was a blue Lwd bed chevy with a BB and 38 Denman GH's that went 91 ft. So after watching every one else and how they picked they lines, I walked over to the Jimmy and aired down to 20 in the front, 15 in the rear and air up the Ranchos to 5. On the second run they let us back up 20ft for a head start, I went balls to the wall on that run. Started off in 1st and shifted to second 30ft into it to get speed and at the final 15 ft downshifted into 1st at full throttle for a good launch into the 6ft deep pit Once I ceased foward momentum i opened the door just enough to see that the mud was up to the bottom of my door and had swallowed my 37's I was impressed to say the least /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif , felt like jumping onto my hood and doing a touch down dance /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif But I was beat by a hick in a BB chevy 39.5 Boggers, but he was a pro at this and had such a lopey cam that the thing could barely idle. Not bad for my first truck and a Stock motor, tranny, and trans case!!! All I need to do is convince my Dad (Derf00) to let me drop in a 468 MPI BB and give those hillbilles and rice burners a run for thier money on a track or mud pit /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
