    Saturday the myself, chevyman_400 and a few other members of our local club joined MNorby and the Powell Valley club on their private land for a play day. 30" of snow fell the night before.

    I knew it was going to be a good day when I got the tow rig stuck on the way in

    First part of the day we went out and played on the snow-covered rocks:

    Then, we hit the mud hole

    Then my wife wanted to take a spin. She really knows how to get a truck stuck!

    The trailer I widened got hit by a drunk driver last summer and totalled. This is an off-the-showroom-floor PJ 18' 14,000GVW trailer. AFIAK it's 83" wide but I'd have eto measure again

    EDIT Found some info:

    It's that one, 18' striaght deck, slide in ramps, 14kGVW

    Removable fenders, on trips longer than a hundred miles and day trips I'll put the fenders on while towing.

    They truck's tires are 38.5x14.5 Swamper SXs

    Thats' how they came from the PJ factory. 1 bolt on each end of each fender through the square tube is all they are. I changed the nuts on the bolts out with wingnuts for quick release.
