Went off road, got stuck but had a blast!!!!!

Ok decided to go out to the lake with my girlfriend and a friend who has a ZR-2 Chevy. We could help but go around and do some serious off roading!!!! Mainly because i just finished my lift, and wanted to feel like a bad ***. Its a B3000 with a LS 4:10. It did surprisingly good and made it thru more than i ever thought it could, I have 30 inch tires. Here is pics.




The ZR2 almost got stuck trying to pull me out. After I got out he went thru. And i hammered it and made it also!!!! Victory!!!

that is why when on sand you need to keep up the momentum and keep the RPM's down.

Your experience is like some of my early offroad experiences when my truck was stock, lol.

This is a 2wd wheeler speaking:

Momentum is everything

If you lose momentum, you are going to get stuck!!!

You will dig, to your diff...lol

It happens to me every time!!!

lol. funny, hey, ricky, you still got that spool? i want it again.

Thats what started my offroad bug. I got stuck exactly like that, and then a week later i got a bodylift, and then 6 months later got my 31s. In sand like that, momentum, low rpm, and baggin tires is very helpful.

much much damage..

they decided to get a camera op if im correct, did brake stands in the sandy water in 2wd, and dug in, then in 4wd he was too deep to get out.. long day, it was a while ago but his truck was trashed


back on topic, looks like u had fun, what kind of lift did you do?

sand=low tire pressure, same for 4wd, just the added security of 4 wheels pullin lol
