More snow runs!

So went up to the mountain again today, this time with my buddy's tubed out wheeler. Fixed his front axle shaft with one from a u-pull-it, and since it was nice thought it'd be a great day to go out and play. Had a blast, yet again. This is why I love Oregon, and I why I SAS'd my truck. To go play in the snow wherever I wanted to! Made it almost to the top before I aired down to 15lbs (I know, it's not that low, but it's really all I needed for traction). Only reason I did was to get past a small hole someone else got into and had to dig out of, which was about 3ft below my tires, wasn't looking to roll my rig today haha... Anyways, the Range did awesome, as I expected and it was a great time. Onto pics!

Useless? I wouldn't say that, not one bit. He'll still take that where his wheeler goes.

I may have some in my photobucket, I'll have to dig them up tomorrow... I have the proof though. Up on that mountain where we were today, he blew up his Neutral safety switch and front driveline about a year ago. He's not afraid to wheel it. Lol.

Maybe not completely useless, but I would have to say excessive is more the key word. If he dropped it about 6" it would look much better. I just done see the point in having that high a center of gravity for an offroader. Seems more likely to tip. Your truck looks good though.

Jesus, lol does he fast rope outta that chevy? Honestly, he should get bigger tires. Hell yeah. BTW, your Ranger I would say, is a huge mission accomplish. I don't think there is anything more you could do with it IMO, that's a perfect looking 4X4! Is your engine tricked in anyway to run those 37"s? Never mind, checked your page......wait, 37"s and 4.10's?!

I should rephrase that... He will take it where is wheeler goes, I\'ve seen it. But he\'s got a Jeep on 38.5\'s on FW\'s and his 73 chevy to wheel. Its mainly his DD and tow rig for his toy hauler and the wheelers. Its big, but its awesome. Faster than **** too.



He tried running 46\'s. They cleared up front but the rears were too close to his fender for his comfort.

If I go up again this weekend, I'll be sure to have someone video me comin up the hill. As of this past weekend, the roads were so rutted up, it was stupid at the bottom. Minimum tire size I would say, would have been 37's to get to where I was in the pic of me facing the hill climb. It was redic!
