A friend maybe more, time will tell. I just met her a week or so ago. She loved it. We had a lot of fun and met some great people. We had no idea who we were even going with. Just met some people and started wheeling with them.

Thanks for All the comments guys. The day started off a little weird when a wheel flew offend gooseneck and we had to turn around and get my 16' bumper pull. I guess the bearings needed some tlc. Lol. The tire went flying across the interstate and actually caught the grass on fire. Ha

I cant believe I was stuck at work just 10 miles down the road from you!! Not fair!!

Great job taking on Warn Valley! Did you drive out or pull cable? I did that run last year but had to pull cable for the last 100ft of it....still a blast tho! Cool thing about Bundy is if you come back agian most of what you seen will be different.


So did the drivetrain perform as you had hoped?

Awesome, lol the truck looks so small because of all the giant tires laying around. What are your coolant and trans temps generally while you're doing stuff like that? Just out of curiosity

Trans is 180ish. Now coolant and oil are a problem. I was shutting it down at 220 on both. That's why we were standing on top the truck. Just waiting for it to cool. When I finished the trail it was 230 when I shut it down.

The first trip out after major work is always so much fun. Anticipation, setbacks, and payoff of all the work along the way.

Congrats gettin the truck back out. Looks like it performs awesome!
