Did some wheelin this weekend

So I took the truck out to do some cruising around this weekend and ended up in the mountains lol. Had a pretty good trip just did some familiar trails and hit some snow. Lesson of the day is don't go snow wheeling alone haha. We hit a bunch of snowy patches but I decided to just plow through it and couple kilometers into the snow I shot out of the ruts and ended up sideways in the snow. It took a while but I got out. I had to chop up a bunch of cedar bows and Stuff them under the tires to try and get traction. Don't think I'll be heading into the snow solo again lol. Anyways, onto the pics.

The 44044's ride great and have a ton of flex, however mine settled allot more than i expected and are almost flat now. For that reason I'm not overly impressed. If I redo my front I'm going to keep the leafs and have a custom leaf pack made to pretty much the same specks as the rancho springs just more skinny leafs and more camber to the spring so it will hold its shape better and flex more. I'm not saying the 44044 springs are bad by any means I just know there's better options if you go the custom route.

Thanks Ryan. It's been years since I've been out to the island. If the opertunity to make my way out there comes up I'll be sure to let you know. And if ever your out this way let me know and maybe we can put together a bc meet or something!
