Pics first; they are poser shots, but you get the idea, the videos have the wheelin stuff:

my partner in crime that day along with being the cameraman and who you hear laughing the whole time.

VIDEOS!!!!!!!!!!!!:


Just driving around on back country roads



New BFGs at work



My first snow hill. The first time I went up it, I slid a little, but it hadnt been rode up yet; it was fresh snow.



4 wheeler trail we ride on



slush hole

In the below videos, i was down in a holler with only one way to get out and it is the hill you see me trying to get up. I kept hitting one spot in the path that the truck wanted to slide. I'd move over a little, but it would still want to slide back into tracks. the final video shows me slapping that biotch in the face and going up it in 4-L0 1st gear.





here is me conquering the hill; you can see where i struggled befiore. excuse any language on the vids, i was a little aggreveted at the dang hill.



over all, i was EXTREMELY happy with the Ranger. She did great and could not have asked for any better. The tires performed extremely well too! I think i did pretty good for my first time in snow with a truck.

That doesnt look like 11" of snow, but nonetheless looks fun. Glad you like the new BFG's..

If we get a big snow here in Ohio, I'll be firing the diesel up to go play. I want to see how the 35" KM2's do, especially on a truck that heavy :) Til then, it sets, salt free. While I save my money driving the '98.
