    how about when I helped rescute my moms jeep in my old C20 pickup? my lil sister and mom were out offroading near the salton sea, and found a saltbog... sunk it up to the hubs, and I followed my cousin out ( he in his massive jeep) and became an anchor point while he winched her out.... ( his jeep was too light, and started sliding towards the bog)

    dragging my parts truck out to my friends palce in Maricopa was quite interesting too... the tow bar I was using to drag it broke TWICE en route.. the first time, a bolt fell out, and my parts truck tried to pass me ( one arm of the towbar was still connected...) the second time, one of the bolts sheared, and I got rearended by it. fortunately, we were close enough to johns place, that I just unhooked it from the other truck, and we rolled it the rest of the way. ( that gave my friend elizabeth a truly rare privelage: she's 1 of 3 people who's ever been allowed to drive Burbanzilla)

    the final story for now, was 3 months after I did my engine swap, and dropped the mildly built 454 into my C20 suburban. my brother, his friend Mike, and myself were on the way home from harrahs akh chin casino, on Maricopa road. when we came to Riggs road, the light turned red... and I of course stopped. glancing in my rearview, I see a brand new Dodge dakota stop about 200 feet behind me in the other lane. realizing what was about to happen, I casually mention to my brother, and mike `hey, check out that baby truck who's going to try to race me'. sure enough, the cross traffic direction turns Yellow, and the Dakota pegs his accelerator to get a head start on me at the light. the light turns green for me, and I peg it to the floor, the 467 cubic inches of torquey cammed bigblock coming to life like hell on wheels. the rear wheels hooked up perfectly (no spin) and launched me forward myself, and my passengers into the backs of our seats, and my truck into an even more perfect victory: the dodge never got past my rear bumper, and gave up shortly after... after hitting about 70 ( 8 seconds later) I let off the gas, and let her coast down to a reasonable speed.... about a minute later, the dodge flew past like he had a small penis, and we all had a good long laugh.

    I'm stuck in the driveway right now with a broken fuel pump. Not too exciting I guess. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    When I was stationed in Georgia I bought my first 4x4. It was a nasty rusted out 82 Diesel Sub. Me, my daughter (3 years old then), and a friend of mine were out playing in the non lifted wonder when we found a water hole. I wasn't going to go through but he kept saying "you can make it!" I fended him off for a while but then my daughter said she wanted to go though and it was on.

    Last time it ran

    My friend had to run(literaly run 4 miles) home and get his Grand Cheroke and his camera. We couldn't get the engine to start once we got it out of the water so we pulled it home. As I dug deeper I found out that I bent 2 connecting rods when I got water in the engine. To make things worse my son was just born and I had orders back to California in a week. Now I had figure out how to get my family, my wifes car and my dead Sub back across the country. When I got back to California I tried to rebuild it but I lost interest in it and sold it so I could get my K5. BTW, I only had it 2 weeks when I destroyed it and I still hadn't made my first payment on the loan I took out to buy it.

    Well needless to say I'm usually not the first one to do a water crossing any more.

    I got my sandrail stuck last weekend. I took it up to the lake with me so I could have something to do at nighttime, since I cant take my boat out at night. Well I was showing off in my rail with my date, and got stuck to the motor in the sand. I figured that she would bitch about it, but she didnt mind, she went and got help. I had to get pulled out by a heep.

    Ok got a great story,
    About a week ago a couple buddies of mine were out wheelin on the Dunes. They both drive /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif90's chevy full size short bed half tons lifted 6 inch on 35''s. Well they were out crusing around when one of them got a wild hair and decided to race accross the sand flats. To his dissmay he discovered they wern't very flat. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif At about 45 to 50 mph he found a 10' plus razor back and dropped off the top of it. He flew about 30 feet coming down on the nose and standing it up on the nose. It hovered there for a while before deciding which way to fall. The truck chose to land on its feet but the damage had been done. Both front tie rods snapped and the front tires blew the inside beads. The bumper was buried to the bottom of the headlights and the bed was bent to the back of the cab. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif Needless to say Redneck cowboys, alcohol, and loud music don't go hand in hand. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
