    And some more rock rash-

    You can't notice it too well, but that panel used to almost cover the gas tank.

    Pushed my bumper into my truck so much it nearly pierced the sheet metal-

    And, Damnit. I screwed up my Trim! :rolleyes:

    And then there was some serious damage.

    The most visually appealing would be the mangled driveshaft-

    Also dented the hell out of the gas tank. Need to relocate and put some armor under it-

    And I also tried to tear off the diff cover, but the stupid thing just refuses to let go :p:-

    Not pictured would be the heater core that blew while under some serious RPM's.

    Nothing like a hard wheeling trip to let ya know what you need to upgrade! :D

    Take the rear cover and grind off the bottom lip to almost the bolt holes . This will put the cover above the bottom of the diff . You can them scrape the diff until the cows come home and never peel the cover :D

    I was behind him for quite a bit of the trail, and that's pretty much what he did. It was a sight to see.

    Man, Nick, I was just looking at those pictures again, and I'm sorry but I had to laugh. You beat that truck like the proverbial red-headed stepchild.

    :haha::haha:

    Yes, well, that is why I bought the truck - despite it's overwhelming $600 price tag :p:

    Honestly I am always amazed with that old piece of junk. I ran it that hard and it still got me home. And I've maybe put only $2,000 into it including the cost of the truck initially.

    That poor truck will never have the luxury of being a driveway punisher, though. :D
