Took the ol girl out in the snow wheeling trip today with a nice scare...56k no way

Took the ol girl out in the snow today to go to a local spot I know about up on the mountain. I love this spot because you have a nice view of the mountains.

Well on the way up I was just taking a curve. I had four wheel drive engaged and everything. I went around it at like 20 MPH and the back end got slid and in the ditch I went. All I seen was bank coming and I was like oh ****. Luckily the only thing that hit the bank was my back tire. No damage to truck! I put the beast in 4 lo and first gear and give it the gas. The old girl come out of there.

Luckily the bank opened up into a little opening for me to get out.

Now on to the rest of my pics

Great pics Scott! You know what I'd be the same way. I don't care how much snow is on the ground a foot or 3" If its not plowed, I would feel the urge to drive through it just because its fun...to me atleast.

Yeah it would just can't right now. Maybe one of these days. But yeah its been way too cold to get out and clean them. No heated garage or anything so they will have to wait till a semiwarm day

No way thats your truck, its way to dirty to be yours!

i know you don't want to hear it, but level it out! and i think you should colour match your grill, since your bumper is already, i think it would look better :)

Time to take the bed off to clean under the truck.. lol J/K man... Nice wheelin pics! Ya gotta love a beautiful snowy landscape.


I had to winch a Grand Prix 4 door out of my ditch today. The guy hit the brakes and never let off = no steering, duh! lol That damn car was actually pretty heavy, and deep in the ditch. My ditches are 5' deep. The Superwinch didn't even groan.

It is down right embarrassing watching people here when we get a dusting of snow.

Here is a good example.
