Short notice, but Nate, Jason, and I are headed up to northern mountains for a snow run. It'll be in an area north of Red Feather Lakes just south of Wyoming. Saturday, 4/3.

May is probably up in the air for me. I'm going to working on some big changes for the crew cab soon.

FYI, you're not allowed to steal my frame to put your cab and a shortened bed on it!
That would be too short. That's why I was saying short was relative. :D

I would steal your frame and put the 73 C10 body on it.....

The weather was awesome. It has been warm enough that we were starting to wonder if we were going to find much snow; in the beginning it was a lot of mud; not good for the guys in an open cab.

We did find snow and we were breaking trail most of the day. We only saw a group of sxs on the trail.

Note the gap between tire tracks. I had some air time. @doubletrouble has video if he gets it uploaded.

My day ended like this and it doesn't have anything to do with the jump. I'll post more detail in my build thread. https://ck5.com/forums/threads/89-r3500-crew-cab-2wd-to-4wd-conversion-beyond.303347/page-233

Hey, ho! Winchfest!

and towmater?
We only had to winch in 2 places. The one where most of the video was shot and then when my distributor shit the bed. In the first spot I didn't have to winch after Nate and Jason broke trail. I was going fast hence the air time. Aside from the broken truck, it was one of the best snow runs I've been on.
