how i spent memorial day weekend

had some fun out around clearlake at a place called indian valley

went out with some friends and had a blast. now i just gotta get a driveshaft thats actually long enough to work for me...that was about my only issue besides my newly installed manual tcase not wanting to leave 4lo....often.

otherwise the only other issue we had truck wise was my friend who also had tcase issues and blew a ujoint.

it was a great trip and i wish i had more pics....i might have a few more later from my friends camera but this is about it.

at the end of the day i think my truck did awsome. the lockers felt amazing...i loved the traction and the ability to creep through alot. i was about the lowest (besides the f150) and had the smallest motor but kept up just fine. for the hill i lost my driveshaft on...if it wasnt for loosing the shaft theres a possibility i could have made it up....but now im ordering a few things to make the next big trip in july alot more fun hehe

on with some pics in no particular order.
