    Wheelin\' in Vegas w/pic\'s

    Pic's from our trip today. Rick88blaze and a few other friends. We had a POS F%$d and a 74' Scout with us. Both of which were shamed by the prescence of two K5's! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Yea it's pretty fun, you don't have to have a very modified rig to run it. Plus it's within 5 miles of Nellis AFB...where I live! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif When you get to the end of the trail their is a sweet view of the Vegas skyline. It was too smoggy to take one today but maybe next time /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Re: Wheelin\' in Vegas w/pic\'s

    Here are the pics I took from yesterday with stallion85.

    This is what's left of the bumper on the bronco that went with us. It's still stock, so he drags his ass quite a bit. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif As you can see in the pic. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    [​IMG]

    This is Stallion85 climbing one of the hills we hit. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    [​IMG]

    Stallion85 missed the action in the bottom 2 pictures.

    This is a picture of a guy who loves his truck too much. I had to invert the colors so you could see it. If you look under the license plate you can see the guy bent over his rear axle. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    [​IMG]

    This is what the diff cover looked like afterwards. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    [​IMG]

    Just kidding, he was climbing a hill out here and got the diff cover caught on a rock and punched a hole in it. I came to the rescue when I sold him my old 10 bolt cover. I even drove home to get it, and gave him a gallon of 80-90w to fill up his diff with. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have more, but they are just pics of the trucks on the trail, nothing fancy. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Wheelin\' in Vegas w/pic\'s

    That's true. The wheeling around here is awesome. That's one of only 2 things I like about this place. The other is the fact that everything is open 24/7. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    What is the name of your club? Also, you might PM stallion85, he would probably be interested in going out with you guys. We are planning on going out again this saturday if you'd be interested in going. PM me if you want to. This will be my last trip here in Vegas. I leave on the 3rd of February for Korea. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    the name of our club is TOTAL KARNAGE LAS VEGAS.
    you can see the sight here www.totalkarnage.net
    or if you are into jeeps you can check out the other club on our site GRIMM JEEPERS this is one of the jeep clubs that we are affiliated with.

    we had a club meeting last night and I believe there are runs both on saturday and sunday also pretty much every weekend. we also do a lot of out of town runs to lake havasu in arizona and moab utah.

    check out our message forums for upcoming runs.

    Re: Wheelin\' in Vegas w/pic\'s

    What sucks for me is that Jeff and I are finally getting a good size group of guys to go wheeling with us, and I'm leaving on Tuesday.

    I guess when I get to Nebraska next March I'll have to look for some local clubs and see who all I can get addicted to 4 wheeling there too. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    At least while I'm in Korea I should be able to get my wheeling fix in. I talked to cityfarmer on here. He's lived in Korea for like 12 years now. He told me that he'll try to get me out on some of his weekend runs over there. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm still going to keep in touch with everybody I've talked to on here while I'm over in Korea. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The way I see it is that I might not be able to have my K5 for a year, but this gives me a year to stock up on parts. I'll just have them shipped to my folks house. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
