    Well my friend and I went to this place real close less than 5 min. away and I finally took it off the pavement.
    I realize this is by no means hardcore but it sure was fun.

    Heres where I got stuck. It was my fault I was backing up the hill in the top pics. I slid into a snow covered, deep icy rut and the diffs got hung up, it shouldn't have ever happened.

    I got a little nervous when 3 vehicles all got stuck. I was backing up the hill to back down to help my friend get his jeep outta a creek because there was a lot of ice and he couldnt get any traction. Thats when I backed into the rut. I call my dad to come back in his stock OBS and he makes it almost all the way back and gets hung up again on a rut. Luckily there were 2 quads there with winches they somehow got the jeep out and the jeep got me out with a few jerks and I got my dad out. All in all it was a blast and it was a real clost spot so yea I had fun. And nothing broke. :head:[/

    I'm dreaming, of a white (with red interior) Blazer, just like the one in CK5. Hey Man, chains & lockers, then you can play instead of "jerking". Yea, nice looking Blaze, Kool but won't scare off ladies.:D

    well at first i wanted something aggressive that rode nice and these ride pretty good. Plus i feel i got a deal at 680 mounted and balanced.

    Next set I hope they are SSRs
