    First test run in the truck was a total success. Nothin broke, I didn't get stuck or need a strap, And it worked awesome.

    Carnage-

    2 blown beads within 20 feet

    Drive shaft pulled apart on my last run, pulled the splined end off the diff, stuck back on the t-case and bolted it back on.

    Totally thrashed the passenger side of my cab. I have rock rash on the windshield frame like 6" from the top of the window.

    1 totally thrashed carb from the mud. It would hardly run enough to get off the trailer when I got home. Took the carb off to douche it out and found like a pound of mud in there and a crack in the aliminum case of the carb. Jammed down to Autozone, picked up a new replacement q-jet, bolted it on and now it runs better than it did before. Purrrs like a kitten. :beer:

    Much thanks to RyanB for bein my support vehicle and crew...haulin my tires up and down the creek bed, reseating the beads, mounting the tires back on the truck and not letting me do anything...Good **** brother. Oh yeah....How many times did I strap you out/over/through rocks this weekend? I think it was like 10 times....... :blink: :D

    Thanks to Dogman for the use of his hose to hose the mud out of my truck. And for the brand new air cleaner so I could get right back into the creekbed. My old one had about 5 pounds of mud in it.

    Anyways, here's some pictures...

    You know the pics are great and it's always cool to see a group of well known trucks together but...

    Is it wrong that the first thing that came to my mind was "Chaz, you're fired!!" :rotfl:

    Here are the pics I took.

    And I think Frizz is running 4" springs with a 2" BL. Not 100% on that. And he is running 42" tires.

    Frank Raines was awsome.
    I ran the creekbed 5 times and i think i got a new small dent for each time. :crazy: :rolleyes: :doah: :shame: :whistle:
    I was on the 'wrong end' of the tow strap like 4 times this weekend, but i swear it was because i was trying the harder lines. :rotfl:
    When i had to take joe's 42's back to camp and then all the way back out to the end of the creekbed, i didn't get stuck. :grin:

    hey KidJethro... i thought you only drink those foo foo shmirinof ice girly drinks... you seemed to be enjoying that Jager when i busted that out! :cool1:

    Well, I definatley can't stomach beer at all...Blehh. The Jager didn't taste much better, kinda tasted like licorice flavored NyQuil. But I had a bottle of Snapple to chase it with....And goddamn does that stuff hit like a train. :blush: That bottle didn't last long did it? :crazy: :laugh:

    What did you have to do to fix it?

    I'm there. :D
