There was a bit of fresh powder on top, about two inches or so. However the rest of it was a mixture of ice, old hard snow that had melted, froze, melted, froze, exc for the last few months. We were trying to get up to my buddies cabin near Grand Lake, Colorado. His parents stopped having the road plowed back in December after Christmas.

I was the first to hit the fresh "trail" at around midnight Friday night after a 2.5 hour commute from Denver. I got about 90% of the way and got stuck. After some digging I managed to back down to the bottom. Then my buddy in his 02 stock Suburban gave it a go. He has studded snow tires, rear tire chains and a limited slip. He managed to make it all the way up (with some help from my original tracks of course).

I tried again but unfortunately got stuck yet again...truck got pulled into a small ditch and I had to have him winch me out. Chevy 1, Ranger 0.

However I got the last laugh on Sunday when the Chevy broke...sheared a power steering shaft in the pump and had to be towed home.

I slept in the bed of my truck both nights since the small 26x26 foot cabin was full with people...I like my privacy. Fri night was around 11 degrees and Sat night got down to -2.


Here are a couple more pics...

Lots of help from friends when I got stuck...

You will have regrets when the slave dies. I know I did and I ordered mine with it.

Did some clean-up work on her last week. Re-coated the valence and honeycomb in SEM Trim Black. Also painted behind the grille and front frame rails with Ace flat black. I also installed a new 3000k 55w HID kit for the fogs.....expensive way to find out your fog relay is faulted. lol. Still waiting on better consistent weather to finally take care of my new-to-me flares...this time shot through a gun.



Needed new valence hardware....became TrePaul_wannabe for a minute on an Ace run...



And complete...minus shackle insert.

Looks good Shane. I need to pain my bumper, mirrors, and grill again as well as the frame rails. I dont want to take the hours it would take to sand them down though.

Anyways I got a new upgrade to try out. Baja designs OnX 20"

the bed doesnt have enough support to. Its like all wavey so when you knock the dent out it pops back. No big deal really adds character.

Good-bye mazda today. Came around a turn and caught some anti skid. Threw me into the ditch and it sucked the truck in. Nothing I could do but hold on. Shes junk yard bound here after I get my stuff out of it
