    I want to start the olympic mudding team. That would be awesome. Sorry I'm just watching the olympics and thought it would be pretty sweet to have like boggertrucks going down moguls or freestyle mudding.

    1986 GMC Jimmy 6" springs 3" body, 38/15.5/15 Swampers, 14-bolt FF rear, Dana 60 front, 1991 front-end.

    Funny you should say that... I was thinking wheeling could be a cool event. But I think it's too mechanical for that to ever happen. Everything equipment wise is man/woman powered where this is not. But that's ok, we got stuff like ARCA to make up for it... [​IMG]

    hate to be realistic, but the germans will probably put a Benz G500 (which i hear is one helluva offroad vehicle) and the brits would probably use the Defender 90. Also, my parents are swiss so i go to switzerland every summer to visit my grandparents(more now since my granddad just died) however, they have offroad events and they're crazy, its on the espn of europe(eurosport) and they use like huge trucks w/ 4-6 axles all equipped with stuff like CTIS(central tire inflation system) kinda like wat the hummer has. and these things go over everything.

    I dunno, they can always bust out w/a lifted Unimog, then we might be in trouble...
