haha very true.

for those who keep wondering why its so tall, ill show you why.

here a picture of "the trench" its the baddest pit around!


and a few of the only rigs that can make it through








of course i wont be in the same class as these guys. i might barrow some 35's and stay in that class because the next size up is 36-44's. but all the other bogs around here i should do very well with 38's.

Not to poop on your parade but I doubt a ranger could get through that. I dont doubt the height, its the torque.
