    learned something \"new\" today

    couldnt find anyone to wheel with today so not learning from last time I went wheeling by myself I decided to go.In the hills north of my house there is an old rutted road. Back when my jimmy was stock I used to get stuck on it every time i went up there, so i decided that my truck is lifted, I have bigger tires, a new motor ,winch and I just welded my rear diff so I should be able to make it.The problem with this it was still wet from spring runoff and we just got 3 inches of very wet snow, so it is really sloppy out. any to make a long story short I ended up buried up to the bottom of my doors several times and haveing to winch my truck for over a hundred feet on its diffs then having to turn around and do it again to get back out i learned Never go wheeling by yourself, A warn 8274 is a hell of a winch, Never go wheeling by yourself down the old rutted road and even in heavy mud I can still pull 5000 rpm in second gear /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    "Never go wheelin' by yourself" I wish I had that option... when all your friends drive lowered Honda's you don't have much of a choice! /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif I think I need new friends!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
