first test run after sas

finally did a real test run on the truck.. it literally was my first test offroad of the tryuck.... i was a lil scared actually that something happened wrong on the mopuntain. so.. 40 trucks did an 80mile ride, 35 miles of them were mud, tight trails, lots of corners and alot more trees to hit you everywere.

i chained only the rear tires as my front tires still hit the leafs when turning, but i didnt need them that much. had to winch out of some pot holes some 3 or 4 times the rest were tecnical turns and using the winch to help the truck make the turns, but a really fun ride.

also i started on my new winch bumper could finish it as i only had 2 days to work on it

we had to sleep on the trucks the night as we couldnt make it to the camp site we had thought... (they are the pics on the open land witht he dry mud) and tghere was no space to set up big tents, just small 2 ppl ones, so driver sit it was.

at night we had a few beers some bbq and hear the whole night some cougars and some monkeys.

this are just some facebook pics ive found on a few ppls pages ill later add a few more pics..






this was 2 feet deep and had at the end an almost vertical step at the end but no need to winch outl. only like 15 of us made it without winching







he is on 38.5 boggers and 4 mud chains stuck, had to winch out








no im really happy with the truck.. cant wait to see the second test run
