Playing in some muddy snow and the new brush gaurd

On Sunday I wanted to wash the truck, so I decided to get it dirty first.













Favorite pic:


And this is why wrangler RT/S's suck. I cant wait till I get my tax money back so I can get some A/T's



Then on Tuesday I drove 100 miles to pick up this grille gaurd for $50. I think I may mount 2 more lights to it. Its a Mavrik or something like that. I have a westin one sitting in the garage that I got for $150 but I need the mounts for it.

Once again its Carlos Avery. Its like my playground. It was awesome, it was pretty muddy. And then I found a self-service car wash between Avery and home. That mud really sucks to get off, its really really really fine sand, and it gets on absolutly everything. I have to do a good engine detail when it gets warm out because its all over in there. The car wash I found has some really good pressure washers that will wash it off, mine at home won't.

They arn't trails just sandy roads. If you go to the northern half you WILL get lost. I have to use my GPS to find my way around. Expect to spend 2 hours back there if you dont know where your going. If you get lost in the part south of broadway ave, you're a lost cause. When it gets warm again we should meet up and play in the mud.

love the truck and brushguard, matthew! as for adding 2 more lights, i wouldn't. it would appear crowded. as for AT's: my goodyear wrangler AT/S's are ten times better than RT's...(had those, sucked)
we do need to hook up again and do some off roading.
and i'm still looking at the Mastercraft courser MT's (when friend can buy mine)
