some crazy wheelin in the ranger today. i need sliders!

almost got some body damage today! i'd say i was literally a 1/4 inch away

and what i pretty much walked through (with good spotting)gave some more capable rigs a bit of a time too
since i went first, once they saw the ranger do it, everyone else had to lol

WOW dude. You got more ***** than I do. I would be scared ****less to do that in your Ranger. You need some sliders if you are gonna do more of that kinda stuff.

It looks like some paint on that tool box wouldn't hurt, either.
