    Flopped my K5 onto the passanger side when i was doing some donuts and figure 8's in the mud... Saturday i could spin perfect donuts, and then Sunday it dried up a bit... the truck decided to bite and hook up as i was sliding around sideways. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    I didn't get any pics of my k5 when i flipped on its side, cause i was too busy trying to get it back on all 4's. Some dude took a couple pics and i gave him my address so he should mail me the pics this week... Another guy i know that lives a few streets from me said that he got video as my truck was going over.. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Hopefully i can update this thread and post that soon.

    Hey kidjethro! Spotted: The elusive Super Swamper sidewall footprint! This one of the 38" tsl variety. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    The whole passanger side looks a lot different now. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif Dented the front and rear fenders pretty good, got the door and the mirror, and cracked my hardtop.
    Also found out that Rockstomper Rockrods aren't that difficult to bend. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    That's really amazing that your truck looks that good after a flop. Mine certainly looks much worse.

    Yah well.. I've spent the last 5 years keeping my truck pretty... Then i got my '67 camaro and realized thats the vehicle to keep super clean as my show car, trucks are meant to be used and abused. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I spent a bunch of money on my 1 ton axle swap and i'm gonna have fun with my truck after i spent all that dough to make it capable! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I kinda cringed when i saw my fenders smashed in, the body was straight but it's not like the fenders were perfect to begin with. I'm gonna have fun with my k5 before i start spending money on the body and paint.
    Each new dent i put in my truck, is the most fun i've had with my k5..

    Hehe.. the fenders got hacked a few months ago when the 1 ton's and 38's went in. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif That was the beginning of the hacking and bashing. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
