    my cousin and I went to a local park to play. we hit alot of trails, the last one we had to turn around because it was so tight that i couldn't get threw, not to mention get around the corners with out seriously damaging my truck. got alot of pics of the back of my truck but here are the good ones.

    the breakage, a slave cylinder, a trip to the auto parts store and $57 and i was back in business, and crunched my fender and door gap, you can see it in the last pic.

    i really miss my gov loc, open diffs suck. i could go alot more places without spinning a tire, but i like the 4.10s better than the 3.42s

    the second pic was deeper than i thought. i checked it with a stick and didn't seem that deep. took us 2 hours to get out. a winch would have worked alot better than our come-a-long and chain. this is where my slave took a dump. once i got out of this hole, i slide into another one almost just as deep on only 1 side 30' ahead.

    this pic, the rear tire was wedged on the tree, and my front pass corner was trying to push the big tree that you can somewhat see. my bumper protected the corner, i got it threw, and pushed in the clutch a bit and rolled back and smacked the tree preaty hard. just took some paint off the bumper.

    then just some cool pics
