    Those are some great pictures. I know how you feel. Everytime it seems like summers finally coming, it snows again. Oh well, it will come soon enough.

    Hey! A few questions for ya:
    1.) How have you managed to keep the body in one piece?
    2.) How did you not get stuck in that mud?
    3.) Did you actually get it up that hill (the pic with the hard top)?
    Gosh! I hope I can get to that level of driving some day!

    Remember what a wise man told his pupil...."Patience little grasshopper."

    I know what you mean! I was walking through the grocery store the other day when I started to notice that my basket was rid'n a little rough and I started thinking how this thing needed some rancho 9000. Then it hit me[​IMG] I'm talking about a shopping cart[​IMG]. Yep can't wait, and nice pic's too!

    You and me both [​IMG]

    Hey! A few questions for ya:
    1.) How have you managed to keep the body in one piece?

    Slow and easy and a lot of luck, I think my luck may run out this summer though.

    2.) How did you not get stuck in that mud?

    SMP and myself were the only two not to get stuck in that bog, we had to back out though, there was a mud wall at the end, in fairness to the others that got stuck, I think we tore up the mud pretty good for them.

    3.) Did you actually get it up that hill (the pic with the hard top)?

    Nope, I was climbing until I broke the long side u-joint axle shaft (dana 44, now have dana 60 haha) and slammed back down, broke my bumper that I had at the time and bent the receiver hitch to hell that I no longer have.

    Gosh! I hope I can get to that level of driving some day!

    Me too

    From what Donna posted, Wayne drives on his front porch when he's bored! Ha ha!!!!
    I'm sitting here waiting for my refund check so I can get my lift and tires. My tires are so bald, I got stuck on a private road. LOL!! Actually, it was some pretty good mud but with decent tires I shoulda been able to go through it. Nick had to call a tow truck to get it out (stuck up to the front bumper) so I've been banned from any type of off roading until we get some height and meat on it [sad].

    Re: Man, I can\'t wait to get it AWN this summer!!

    I hear ya Steve! Its been a thrash fest at tRusty's house the last couple of weeks, first the tub swap and tonight it was a new set of headers with new exhaust tomorrow. I've still got a bit of welding left from the swap but its real close to done. Lately I feel like I've been working on it more than driving it...hang on I have been working on it more than driving it.[​IMG] I can't wait to go and break in the new sheetmetal down in Oregon with Mudhog and the gang!!!

    So is the UAV ready for Moab or do you still have a few more details left?

    I can't wait for some fresh carnage err wheelin pics, its been awhile![​IMG]

    Steve,
