Minneapolis Mini Meet

Me and David headed up to the junk yard and then on Carlos Avery for some good old goofing around. I was looking for a roll bar that I knew they had and the guy said some guy bought it not 10 minutes before I was a bit angy. Heres the pics.






I was driving along this road doing probably about 20 and came up on a puddle so I decided to hit it. It was a bad idea, it was a rather large hole and im pretty sure I damaged something. It now shakes going 55 and theres a rattle in the engine. Heres the only pic I have of the aftermath


And heres a couple vids, we were using 2WD becuase i tried it first with 4WD and nothing happened it just hoped out.




And then theres the cliche going home mirror shot:

Haha... looks like a good time.

Sucks about the truck... but hopefully it's just some dirt throwing the wheel outta balance for the shake...

I dont think its mud on the rim. I dropped in and hit hard, it was like a pothole. Time for an extensive underbody wash.


Oh and that roll bar sold for $9, yes NINE DOLLARS.

Matthew < OWNED by guy who bought rollbar.

lol.

That's the perfect example to getting it when you first see it, rather than waiting. That's how i somehow now have a ranger part junkyard of sorts. lol.


When did you put the 4 lights on it? Looks great!

Well I first saw it on a post on here, and I waited until today because today was half off day. I was waiting for david because its up there near where we went, if I wasnt waiting for him I was going to go as soon as I woke up this afternoon.

I just got the 2 middle lights on today, I put the 2 outside lights on a while back. I cut the wires on the old ones so right now none of them are hooked up.

It was a fun day, and one of the first times I have put my truck in mud. It sucked about the roll bar. I guess it was my fault, I didnt get going fast enough lol.
