finally...an actual wheelin trip!

So these pics are slightly out of order, But... it was a great trip. I was in arnold CA with a few friends and wheeled Slickrock trail and a few other ones. It was TONS of fun and so far the hardest ive pushed my truck. I loved it and cant wait for my next trip to somethin more hardcore....gotta great rush from it. Anyways, enough with the blabber and onto the pics.

This is what happens when you let your jeep mentality get ahead of you...god these guys were dumb. First they let the guy with the most built up jeep first....it was like his second run period in this jeep he bought built up...so he sucked at driving. Then they decided to run a stock jeep....yet this part of the trail required lockers front and rear...and lift, cuz without it, your rig just wouldnt make it up the mid section..so he got winched out...and not safely lol

The built jeep that the driver kept killing...lol

and heres a few pics of this bronco...now this guy...sucks at driving too...i heard he snapped both ujoints in his front axle...and he was open front and rear...idiot kept laying on the skinny pedal and broke it like that...so he hooked the winch to me and SLOWLY came up..

and if you wanna hear about sketch..well these guys had a .22 rifle in the back of their truck with a whole bunch of rounds just chillin UNDER the spare tire just skattered about. at this point when they gassed it up, everyone heard a loud BANG....that gun coulda easily shot any one of us...luckily noone knows what got shot, but a round did go off...

Nothing makes you feel better that the truck held together and kicked butt!! I remember that feeling and the confidence in the truck and driver skills keep increasing with more wheeling trips......
