    I went out and played today in some of the mud that was left for Illinois after we had 6"+ of rainfall in the last few days... I made a little video clip... just call me BORREGOK5-wanna-be!

    Carnage! I managed to bust something on my truck!!! Lets just hope I can continue to be so lucky! BROKEN MIRROR /forums/images/icons/blush.gif I drove close to a bush that had a trimmed back tree branch hiding inside. All I heard was SMACK! Didn't even notice until I got to the gas station afterwards! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Let me know what everyone thinks of my handy work... in and out of the mud! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Heck Yeah! Your truck sounds good diggin in the mud. I like the sideways action and the mud spitting speed you hit it with. Now you know we'll all be expecting a sequel, right? /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Borrego! Sorry for the weak attempt at the video! But I haven't learned how to blend the clips together yet! /forums/images/icons/blush.gif /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif The truck did pretty well... but with an open air element, I couldn't beat it up too bad. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif Anyone know of a cheap way to build a snorkel kit for a K5?!!! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    put a prefilter on it to block the big chunks and call it done
    or
    get a stock style dual snorkle housing
    I have yet to see a nice PVC job
    if you must, and please dont, go to a muffler shop and have them bend light tubing up for the job

    The music was by a band called Soil. The first album is Scars, the song was Halo. They sound like a very angry Creed.

    Re: ***PICS*** Just thought I would share a local run...

    Not so sure about that myself... I'm not sure I like the "BIG-ASS-PVC-HANGIN-OFF-THE-FENDER" look. I was hoping for something a little more "publicly acceptible." I have seen a couple of nice setups... but I don't think PVC is my preferred method. Molded plastic, or something that routes into the cab. The ARB kit might be okay, but I didn't like the looks of the price tag...

    Actually - I'm not going... /forums/images/icons/frown.gif I decided to save my bones in favor of possibly picking up a set of TSLs that are badly needed for the BandLands @ Attica, IN run 3 weekends from now. Are you going to make it for that? /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Unfortunately not. Have heard some great things about the badlands. I guess I should just get my @$$ in gear, and start working on the Crew Cab conversion to 4wd. Doesn't look like I will get much wheeling in /forums/images/icons/mad.gif Summer is the busy time @ work, plus the wife always seems to have other plans for my time. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    I am pulling 20-25kB/s off your server, so it's not bad.
