Shooting sounds like fun, but sucks about getting stuck in the ditch.

If it helps you justify them, sure! lol
The truck also would have been sitting 3" higher and slid further down the ditch, so I don't know. Honestly when it's sitting like that, the best thing to do is pull on it I think, rather than trying to throttle out of it and shift the weight around more.

yeah, thats what we decided to do. Called in the tow truck, and he spent 10 minutes trying to decide which way he wanted to pull her out. Decided that either way(pulling from the front or back) the opposite end would swing around, and since the rear end would most likely handle the abuse a little better, we pulled from the front. In the end the rear end didnt swing around and everything worked out. Although half-way into pulling her out the winch on the tow truck started to crap out . so he has to get a new winch this weekend lol.

Brian, You still trying to get rid of your 35's? I still havnt decided whether i want a 35 or 33.

Oh, i thought it was brian. Why are you trying to sell yours? and you have the 18's right? Unfortunatly i have the 17's.

the truck is treating me great! other than a few hicups with the tranny, its running like a champ! i need to get the truck into the tranny shop here and have them install a lift kit, feels like its starting to slip a little. DOES NOT like it when i go WOT.

I leave this month for training, then afghanistan in october(training from now until then). so the truck will be getting new shoes, Poss. a lift thinking about just going with coilovers and bilstiens, and a AAL in the back instead, new exhaust, intake and a Gryphon.

haha i think the one that freaked the most was the fiance, mostly because her 3 year old was in the booster seat at the time. the look on the father in law's face was priceless though hahaha
