    That crazy yellow rig is driven by a guy known as 'jamiemac' on these boards. He's Hotrodk5's brother. What it is, is a suburban chasis cut down and the rear end moved 18" forward. It has a 14 bolt, open I think, maybe a gov-loc. I beleive the front was only an open Dana 44 but I tell you what, he hit axle hill HARD and nothing broke with 38" or 39" swampers. The body is an s-10 stretch cab. Hopefully one of these guys will get on here and tell all on the rig. Hotrod's K5 sounds sooo good. His name really fits him.

    All I can say is WOW...Thanks for the pics. That place looks like there is only one way in and on way out. How did jamiemac get off his side in the creek?

    Very carefully. The only reason he wasn't on his side was because the whole side wall of both tires were on the ground. We hooked a strap around his roll bar and everyone pulled like crazy while he either backed out or was pulled. He wasn't stuck as in couldn't move, he was just cought in that deep rut and the rear end having boggers just climbed right up the side of the wash and that's when he got real crooked. The big jeep behind him tipped around that same spot but was easily corrected. That big jeep, by the way, is on an old 70 something 4x4 fire truck with Dana 70s. If you look close at the pic of him on the ramp and look at the rear end you can see the leaf pac of the fire truck AND above that a little you'll see the leaf pack from the jeep. the jeep frame is on the fire truck frame and has shocks between them. He's got hydralic steering too. Very original set up. If you go to http://communities.msn.com/OffroadK5s/6superliftand33s.msnw

    Yeah, it was a blast. I wish I had brought my camera. I missed l;ots of good pics. Do you have any pics that you can post where I was pointing stright up in the air on the back wheels? [​IMG] Talk about pucker factor. That was my first time on the ramp and I'll say I was impressed with my skyjacker springs. Looks like I need to move my shock mounts to get the rest of the flex out of it.
    I'll say I was suprised at how well you did, mudstud with those 33's.
    And by the way, jamimac's Hybrid had 44's on the rear and 42's on the front. His rear was locked with a Detroit and the front was an open D60. He needs to replace that punny ol 305 if you ask me. But that was funny watching him try axle breaker hill. If he would have been locked up front I think he would have made it.
    Personally I'll say I had the most fun on the twister sections.
    [​IMG] Still cant believe I forgot my camera. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I did notice you had one of me high centered on the rock pile, I think I had 1 tire on a rock and the other 3 were dangling in the air. That was mostly from 3 different people yelling out spotting moves. **shrug**[​IMG]

    Jamiemac's tire size is a little deceiving cuz he has no fenders ;) When I saw you drive to the sky I grabbed my camera and started heading back for the shot but you had all ready backed out of it. I asked if you wanted to 'pose' again so I could snap a pic but I guess you didn't hear me. Sorry man. That was tons of air. I think even more than Hotrods pic. That was my first time on a ramp too. I had heard about 6" lifts and 33's rubbing fenders and now I can log that one down as fact. On the tape you can here the pop pop sounds of the tires rubbing even with the mild trimming the fenders all ready had. I'm glad I wasn't running 35s or I would be looking for new fenders. A new project just presented itself...MORE TRIMMING.

    Well, I must have trimmed mine pretty good then, cause I only got limited rub with the 36's adn 4" lift.
    And I'd have been glad for you to get another shot but I wasn't ready to get the truck back in the vertical position again on purpose. [​IMG]

    That brown Jeep is crazy. Looks like they just mounted the jeep frame springs and all to a 1ton frame or something. Kind of hillbilly looking, but it looks like it works well.

    When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.
