I tried writing this up last night, but I hit some (obviously wrong) key just before I was finished, and erased everything. So, here it goes again.... We (Ira - aka sandawgK5, Scott - aka 84zz4ss, Rob - Rob 85K5, and myself) left out Sat. morning at 8am from Scott's house. It was a good day....not too long, and filled with good, muddy fun. One of the other three can chime in and correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the casualty list was: one tire sidewall split; one bead lost, but reset; passengers side alternator on the 6.2 crapped out; mutliple ignition fuses in the blue K5, fan blade/pulley/balancer assembly on the blue K5 just FELL OFF (to quote Scott, "In all my years of having GM's, I've never once seen that happen"), causing water pump and severe radiator damage; water in the fuel of the brown K5 that had been plaguing it for a couple weeks now; E-Z locker in the front of the brown K5 sounding more and more like popcorn; fire ants got under my pant leg and ate up my left leg from the knee down; and Ira's pride, for being the only person to officially get stuck - not once, but twice! In our playin', we came across an abandoned-over-night Bronco that (apparently) entered the swamp without a front driveshaft, and then busted the pinion in the rear axle (not sure, exactly). When we came upon it, it was a funny sight. The owner wasn't far away, and among the folks with him was a guy in a fullsize, 2wd Dodge van. They got it stuck.... We looked the other way. We offered to tow out Bronco when they got their act together (I did the driving, with the CUCV). As I was, the passenger rear tire started walking out in that POS F*rd (LOOOOVE c-clip axles ). We pushed it back in, and continued the tow - "If it falls off, keep pulling", Scott said. We were hooked up with the dude's chain that he had (about 40-50ft of THICK chain), and when we got to the asphalt, and Bronco was unhooked, and wouldn't ya know it, that chain stayed in the back of the CUCV!!! Shortly after that fiasco, both the K5's were having trouble staying running for various reasons. With straps doubled-over between all the rigs, we 'freight trained' it out of the swamp and back to the asphalt with the M1028 as the engine. One word - WOW. I HAVE to have an M1028 now....that freakin' think - STOCK - is impressive. I have to have one. I think I just about covered everything. Enjoy.
