    Just thought that I would share with you guys and gals that my truck actually made it out onto a local wheelin' spot last night. I took it easy, seeing as I havent been on trails since April, still need to learn my [lack of] power in the 350 and I STILL am not used to the bhydro assist being somewhat slow. My driving needs to adjust to all of this before I really start romping on it.

    I did get the chance to burry the 42's in a loose hill climb, and somehow managed to bust out one of my bezels out of the grill. I'm all ready for the trail carnage in Fulton this coming weekend! BRING IT AWN! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Didn't your driveway get lonely? /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    If it's the first time it's REALLY been out, remember to go around the truck with a torque wrnech and retighten everything that's managed to loosen, which for me was about every other bolt.

    I was with dan and it was a cool thing to actually see his rig in action after all this time. It's one flexy good looking beast on a trail! I, on the other hand, attempted to stuff my truck between 2 trees on an atv trail and wrinkled the front of the passenger fender to the rear of the door. Guess before too long it'll be time for the desert tan carc paint, cause it looks like chit on my nice glossy blue paint! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    That desert tan paint wears like iron. I've scraped and dented mine and for the most part the paint won't come off. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Dan,

    Talk to me about your Hydro Assist at the park this weekend. I'll speed it up for ya! Had to slow mine down a bit - I couldn't drive straight down the road!

    See you boys there - and Yes, there will be carnage!
