  • If I can't DODGE you, I'll RAM you.
Makes sense! You'd need friends with equally as wicked trucks to help when needed. I suppose you've had to do welding and stuff out there too?
The few times I've really tried to go on some trails was usually a fail. We all got stuck and it was just a mess. I guess "go hard or go home" is the way to go. No point half assing it.
Not only do we not have decent trails here, most people don't have decent rigs.
There's this "Jeep gang" I call them that I see at my girlfriends work once a week, nice jeeps, all brand new and decked out with lights and winches.. but never seen any mud on them. Makes me think they have more cash then the will to use their jeeps for anything but showing off.  {noclue} I don't understand it, but to each their own.

    Adding some reinforcement to the skid plate...



    Also - had been putting off buying another tube of yukon super joint 'grease' because of the expense, but it was time to give them a shot...   Read on a couple other threads where it was really just hi-temp copper infused anti-seize...  But went ahead and ordered the 'real' super joint grease.   Well I got what others had posted...  copper infused Bostik never-seez.  heh







    So I ordered up a tub of this...

    Been awhile? Yea, I would say.  Welcome back stranger.

    Photobucket changed some of their stuff awhile back, and tried to hustle money to get the pics usable. Some have gone back, others still have issues. The photogallery here has gone to pot, due to not getting the needed upgrades, and the overlords do not care.
