Since I no longer have official two lane mud pits in the field, I have now opened up one of our backroads on the property to a few of us to play at. It's only for about 2 months in the spring theres mud and water here; the rest of the year it's dry. Since nothing in "the Fleet" is together that I play with, I took the Bend Oregon red '83 Chevy and decided to throw 40's on it and drive it around. It was a big improvement over the dinky tires I had on it to move it around. This was the first time I've actually driven this truck other than a few miles in Oregon and off the trailer and into the garage up here. We also had a Dodge D-50, Ford F250 with a 6.9 Diesel- we stuck two of my 35" Swampers on the back of it), and my old red '84 K20 on 36" Goodyears. Everyone else was a no show. At first we just played around a little on the road that leads into my "storage clearing" and on the east edge where a spring run-off from melting snow has made it a bit muddy. I broke through to a big hole on the main road making it difficult to get back out or in that way. The rest of the "mud course" I had planned is an old road that has ruts and water in them, and it loops back around down across the seasonal run-off/swamp and back into the field. On my last pass I bounced a bit as I hammered the throttle and then suddenly it acted like it popped out of gear. I ended up shattering the coupler between the 465/205, or I sheared off the splines. No power out of the T-case to either driveline in 2 or 4. [ But it was still a fun day.
