and DAMN!
I've never wheeled that park with my truck, but i've rode a few times and it just turns into a slippery fun fest when it rains that much, the posi rear was KILLING ME! the first hill climb i was beating it pretty hard in 2nd trying to get up that ledge but no go :( I almost had it once we had already stared unspooling the winch as you can see

BUT, that didn't stop me.. my buddy who was supposed to be there when we got there.. got there about a minute after i had the axle torn down waiting on the new shaft he had taken out of a 44 of his. got it all put back together and kept goin, finally got to use the rock lights.. I also had an issue with the truck running real hot, maybe its the lack of fan shroud .. time for an e-fan.

Looks like a nice place to wheel. What park is that? I might be down in Texas this summer to see my sister in North Richland Hills.

Dang Matt... That place looks real fun. I'm really liking your truck. Looks great. It's very hard to tell how hard things are in pics but if I aired down to like 4psi, do you think my yota would even have a chance at making it up that right side? Just trying to compare. I have no idea how hard it is in person. Great pics though!

they just opened not too long ago. and there's not too many full size trails yet, but there's a ton for quads and dirt bikes.


Today we went up a few trails again and it was a little easier.. I made it up everything today, we had to strap the ZJ up a ledge, then we went back at the end of the day and tried again... anddd he stripped some teeth off the pinion gear but up until that point he was giving it HELL, i had no idea an open D30 on 33s with a V8 would take so much abuse..


Oh yea.. my front end got like 2 or 3 feet of air, i was looking at the sky for a split second hah

it was a good time, we need to go cut more trails, it gets old running the same stuff a couple times in one day.

I really wish someone was there with a nice camera to catch my wheel stand haha
