    well a couple of my buddies coaxed me into to going out and playing with their truggies and so I dragged mine out there...

    well the rocks were alot of fun, then I had to go over it one last time... the result was falling into a bad spot. The result was a hung rear diff, a front diff plowed into a rock, a tie rod in a bad spot,a tire wedged up real bad, and a body mount siting on the rocks too..


    so i get here motivated and she moves..then I slide down more, next thing I know I hear the lovely sound of a axel shaft snapping, took out the both shafts and u-joint, then after airing down ALOT more I ended up giving her one more try, my result was sheeriing the bolts on my steering box!:crazy:

    needless to say I was stuck pretty good, but we were in good spirits and having fun, so the guys I was with "who I will keep my mouth shut as to who they are" decided to just leave!:mad: I have helped him replace both front shafts in the midle of know where before..and he had the nerve to just leave! He wouldnt even try to yank it! what are friends for right..:(


    anyways...so I call my partner in chrime as well as another friend.. David "k5redneck" he fires up the 1 ton and comes to the rescue! After we did some recovery thinking, we yanked her out and it went perfect and safe!!

    so, after that we limped it to a main road, we left and I just got in at 4:30 am.. long night!

    so I will go snag it with a trailer in a few hours and get her home so I can change out the box and shafts.

    ok heres the pics!

    here is a frind of mine who tagged along, well she slipped..the result is a really brusied face, a cute nose, and her eye is swollen now! She is a quite a girl though, no drama, tears or complaining! She just delt with it:blush:



    crazy! oh and she wasnt driving in the pics, she was just relazing while we waited for the the fords in front of us to finish up.

    all and all it was alot of fun..now I just need to get my truck home!:crazy:

    Those so called friend should remember "What comes around goes around"

    They will get theirs one day

    With the group I go wheeling with , no one gets left behind.

    It just would'nt be right

    lol

    just the cost of a trailer and 4 bolts for the steering box, pauly383 is on his way over and I picked up the suburban to tow it...

    in an odd way this works out because we needed to pick up his new cab today some how..now we will have a trailer and something to to it with too:D

    lol ya she isnt like most girls, I know three girls that are just like her, but they are far and few im between. she was all smiles, she came out today when I went to snag it and her face looks real bad, I feel really bad about it:(

    shes not mad or anything though, which is real surprising,

    anyways the truck, even with no steering only took a few minutes to get on the trailer! It was nuts how easy it was!!

    this whole trailering deal is really rubbing off on me!

    -shawn

    the truck s home now and I will probably fix it tonight,

    -shawn:grin:

    Sounds like a crazy night, what a bunch of Jerks to leave you out there.....when my club goes on a run we all stop and help someone in need if they break. If it takes too long a few will stay behind with them to make sure they get out.


    I figured the "Amigo's" wouldn't leave you out there.....guess you'll only be wheelin with them from now on.:)

    Do you have a steering box brace?

    That's pretty crazy shearing the bolts off and all........

    just got in from picking up pauls new cab for the 83 blazer, man what a long day!


    the frame was braced, a home brew brace that is holding up really well, I simply was bound up very bad and the tires were completely cranked into a rock and also it was kind of an upper cut too, having to try to back up was not helping at all either, the pics just do justice for how bad it was!

    Next time I am that bound up I will unstick the truck, rather then trying to drive it out, I learned just how hard you can beat on stock steering:D

    all in all I learned some things from it,

    1.. no more wheeling with those guys

    2.. steering is over rated

    3.. having a working radio is a great thing when you are broke in the middle of know where:)

    4.. if you go through the hassel to build a u-joint steering shaft...dont give it away, and go back to a rag joint..cause the rag joint will fail:crazy:

    5.. when you are stuck..realize your stuck..or further damage will incure..

    6. carry a first aid kit at all times " I now have a nice one in the truck since last night"

    7. batteries...lots of batteries for the camera

    Very good! It sounds like you're learning some important lessons. Keep on learnin man! Never be afraid to use the winch, or take a strap. Sometimes, depend on how bad your stuck, it just isn't worth it. Do you have a fire extiguisher in your rig?
