    Air is fun! I was catching some air most of the afternoon at sand lake...we all were. The jump we found was the best though...I think we all tried it at least 3 times each. My first try I was going too slow, the second attempt I blew the shift right before the jump and embarrassed myself. The third time i got carried away trying to make up for the two previous tries. Mudhogs buddy Scott was riding me pretty good about Fords being better than Chebbies so I guess I had to try and show him up. When I hit the jump I had no idea I'd get that much air! What an eerie feeling...I thought the landing would be really harsh and I expected to break something but I was wrong on both counts! The landing was very smooth with no real second bounce, and nothing broke!

    I can't wait to see the pics Chaz!

  6. thanks, frank. the best one wasn't caught on film- you know like the one that got away. it was my first attempt that was the best. i didn't even plan to jump, i was just hitting this hill a little harder. turned out i caught some desent air. the second two i got pics of i chickened out and didn't go as fast. now i'm hooked though. i wanna fly!!! i have a bolt on truss for my front 10 bolt but i want to have gussets welded on the knuckles and above the diff. frank, you have the one ton stuff it's your turn!!!
