    feels good doesn't it? i blew a 36x12.50 swamper, messed up my oil cooler, and blew my power steering pump in the mud. it's good but, bad too. i wish i could just screw up bolts.

    I ruined an MTR 2 weeks ago. Think it happened in the snow - punji sticked the corner of the tire. It was flat when we woke in the morn.

    Get road hazard on your tires and carry a real spare - had both or I would have been in about 75 miles of nasty roads trouble!

    Gawd I hate the snow!!!

    wanna know something funny? this morning on the way to work, he split his passenger hub in two. Not the locking hub, the WHEEL HUB. We have no idea as to how this happened, but it took out the hub and the spindle, and all the bearings. was pretty impressive. he's really lucky the wheel stayed on so he could get to the side of the road. Good thing we have spare stuff around, we had it back on the road by late afternoon.

    The matrix. when Neo is on the ship talking to the little bald guy ( cant remember his name right now) who kills everyone later. The little guy offers him a drink, and neo spits it all over.

    Just what is considered "wheelin' hard". Breaking stuff? 'Cause I suppose you could do that puttering through a mud hole and just not see something under the mud. People are always saying "you don't need that unless you wheel hard" when referring to things like 14b, 1 ton rearends and such. But not really wheelin with anyone else other than my brother in law, I have nothing to base the terminology on. Can someone give me an idea?

    and dont worry all....the hub/rotor assembly has been fixed. i never heard of this happening to anyone else before. The hub that rides on the wheel bearings <font color=red> broke right the h3ll in two </font color=red> <font color=blue> craziest thing i ever saw</font color=blue>
