    Every off-road web page that I travel to has at least one pic of a 4x4 with one tire on a rock in the middle of no where, I'm sorry but I'm kind of tired of looking at those cheesy shots. [​IMG] ENOUGH ALLREADY!!

    a guy in our local club a couple years back installed lockers, SPOA, shackle reversal, and removed the swaybar from his 73 jeep CJ. then took it out on a run, found a rock that he wanted to get a picture on. Problem was the rock was larger than he originally thought and he dumped the Jeep on its side. I couldn't stop laughing for weeks.

    Awww Steve, it may be cheesy, but not all of us have a RTI ramp in the backyard! If I do anything suspension wise, the local gravel pit with the rock in the center of it becomes the test ground. And, if the truck happens to flex better than it did a week ago, a picture happens. Then it gets dumped onto the web page.
    The nearest rock trail to me is 6 hrs away, I have never been crawling at all, so when this guys mud truck happens onto a small (by your standards) boulder on the trail, and I can get the truck up onto it, I kinda get all proud and tingly and want a picture!
    No hard feelings, but dont knock those of us who havent achieved the Moab or Rubicon or Tellico status yet. [​IMG]

    Well it is a cliche type of picture, but still better than a driveway shot.[​IMG] Unfortunately not all of us live near Moab or some other wheelin' mecca, so the gnarly twisted and sick photo ops are few and far between.

    Don't get me wrong, I understand if there isn't much around, but maybe a ditch that you can get crossed up in or even put the rock under the rear tire instead. [​IMG]

    I think I get the point, a little more imagination and variety, right? How about all crossed up on the fountain at the mall with the curb feelers all maxed out? [​IMG][​IMG]

    How about an informative article showing the benefits of wiper 'wings'? Also the technical bits on the actual installation!

    How about a "Baby on Board" sticker on the trucks of the new fathers out there. Grim, do you have this on your to do list?

    Somewhere at the house I have a picture of my '77 crossed up in a ravine so well that 2 tires are stuffed into the fenders while the other 2 are clawing at air. I'll have to scan it in and send it to ya. [​IMG]

    thats the only thing a ford can do!! u could put the same amout of money into a Chevy or GMC and get a truck that could go over the moutains in the background instead of sitting at the base of it. if i ever owned a ford i would battle it from the start just going around hitting anything in site, after it hit the first thing i bet it would not make it to the next but if i did it with my K-5 (i would never do it, just saying that if i ever did) it would keep on going and everything else would feel the pain. K-5s live on forever like the #3 car
