That pic looks like most of the driveways around here. lol Not saying the trail isn't rough, just saying there's some screwed up driveways around here. looks like fun tho'.

I imagine you've got a lot of sand down there tho', am I right? up here it's all red clay. That sand is a lot different driving, I learned that real quick when I was in Florida.

Nice looking truck, I think it would pass for mines twin, if I had the tires and you had a winch anyway.

I figured it would be more sandy than clay that far south, guess not.

lol, there's not any driveways around here as steep as that second pic, but that first pic is what most of them around here look like, about a 45 degree hill is the most I've seen on a road, BUT, it was in someones driveway, no gravel just clay. lol

Up here where I live about 30% of the county roads are still gravel, there's some county roads that look as bad as that trail in the first pic.

well i was saying them hills are clay but at the bottom of the two hills is a small pit about 50 yards long and its full of sand actualy nothing but sand and mud and if you stop 4x4 or not your gonna sink to the frame very quick... especially if your cocky and think you can stop the pedal to the floor thinking youll dig your way out... loll nononononono watched many of people sink and ive got over 30 under my belt from just pulling people outta that sand in that one spot it is seriously a sink hole but ive only got stuck 1 time when i was pulling my buddy's z71 out

Yep, sand is hole different game from clay, when I was in Florida I worked for a peat mine, so driving in the sand and peat was required, I thought I could take my truck through it, made it about 300ft and bottomed out.lol

Luckily the company provided a truck, it was a f-150 with a 4" lift and 35x12.5 tires, I loved that truck, not because of the lift or tires, but because of the King ranch package it had, it was a 2005 and when I left in Jul of 08 it looked like ****, we tore it to pieces driving it through that mess, sad really that such a great truck was used for that, but it was there money and they spent it the way they wanted to, even tho' I was the one that got to enjoy the truck. lol

Yea, I don't know why they wanted to use such a nice truck for that, but I still had a **** eating grin on my face that you couldn't have wiped off with a ball bat when they handed me the keys. lol

yea i drilled out holes to accept the lights i tried to make them even as possible but i couldnt cuz i had a crappy drill and it was hard to drill strait down when you have to drill at a angle but they came out ok.... i wish id done better and their procomp 6in fog's 28$ a piece their well worth the 28$

and id have a heart attack were i stood if they handed me the keys to something like that bu the thing about it is... if youd had to drive your truck youd be tearing up your dd

the tires are amazing off-road but on road their actualy very good too just vibrates everything around 0-15 mph haha but you wont notice it that much if you have sub's in your truck but i love them just keep them rotated and they will last forever im working up on mileage on them i dont remember exactly how much but i believe around 18k or a lil more on them and still 2/3in of tread left

I wanted to drive my truck, they said it would tear it up and bought the 150 as a company truck of sorts, I took it home with me when I left and everything, they paid for gas, insurance, up keep, all of it.

I'm glad they told me not to drive my truck and got the f-150, I went through 3 or 4 transfer cases, a few drive shafts, 2 or 3 fenders were replaced then I said screw it and just drove it with them tore up, the company offered to fix them but I told them they would just get bent and tore up again, I couldn't begin to tell you how many tires I busted on logs and various other things in that peat.

All of that in 120,000 miles. lol None of it was on purpose, but when you have to do it everyday you break ****.
