    took at the mounds last saturday.
    its 31 meg so dialup beware

    Darkshadow, 98sportTJ from midwestoffroad.com, a guy from flint with a 85 blazer and I all went out to find some mud and trails, we found a bunch of mud and some really tight slimy trails, darkshadow and I both had a tough time to get around.

    my carnage list
    twisted front driveshaft
    malfunctioning choke
    leaky header gasket
    leaky bead on tire
    i had a cracked flex plate from before and didn't fix it yet.

    i took some pics but i forgot how to use the camera (push button to take pic, then push it again to save it) so i have no still pics other than what i took from the video.

    Pretty cool video. Those were some tight spots you guys were going through. I didn't think you were going to make it through at that one spot.

    FYI you can try and use Microsoft Media Encoder 9 (free) to encode it and will probably have that file down to at least 15mb if not less and will be compatible with all windows media player... as a wvm or wmv file.... :thumb:

    I cant wait to get back to the Mounds.
    I shived my old Blazer through there. With 44s it will be interesting.
    I remember not even being on the trail sometimes, more up on the sides. Had like 3ft+ under my axles cause the trails are all dug out from quads.

    See you there sometime I hope!

    Hey all you Michigan wheelers!

    We need to hook up sometime. I've got an '80 K-10 longbed with 33s, 400SB/SM465/NP205
    [​IMG]

    (old picture. new tires and a new bed since then. the big dent is from a tree and there was a matching one on the other side from a stop sign)

    and just picked up an '89 K5 with a 6-inch, 35s 350/TH350/NP205.

    All my favorite local off-road spots have been closed and the mud in my veins is getting pretty thin!

    Holla!
