Muddy and broken

Took my B4000 out the other day, it did quite well minus me beating it until it broke, slammed it sideways into a tree, ripped off the front valance and lost both fogs, broke a rear brake line and the front drivers side axle, man was it fun tho.. Only got a couple cell pics.. The hole the Bronco is in is where I lost the front valence ect, I went flying through it..

I had only taken it on trails before and yes, its very deep, he hit the other side like I did except he was going slow, theres mud ect on my roof from that same hole. I bought a bunch of bushings, shocks and other things for it so I took it out to see what it would do before I tore into it. New axle was $40, not sure if Im going to replace the fender and valance before or after winter.

yea you dont go tearing into holes like a bat out of hell...go slow so if it gets too deep you can back out...i did that when i was wheeling and was fine...my buddy went fast into a hole and sucked water into his motor and hydrolocked it

Ill go back and get more pics and maybe some video, hopefully before it gets frozen up here. The Bronco hydrolocked, we took out the plugs and cranked it to get most of the water out, drained the oil and filled it up with gear oil, jumped it with my truck, sputtered and died, tried again with some ether and she ran while holding the throttle, alternator shorted out tho. The high lift didnt work, waited for a friend with a lifted cummins ram to pull him out, I had broken my axle at that point. I came flying through from across the other side, see how theres kind of a trail in the picture? The rest of that watery mess is only a foot deep at most, neither of us knew about that hole there. Maybe I didnt hit that exact spot but I crossed right about there, where I was standing to take the picture is where one of the trails is. I can drive fine, but like I said, I was beating the **** out of it, purposefully.

Why would you purposely mess up your truck?
