Went wheelin' this past weekend!!!!

What's up comrades,

Well since I got everything fixed up and working properly now I decided to take a few hours and play in the dirt a bit with the GF & dog. Truck ran great, took sway bar off and oh my what a difference in the dirt. Feels like I'm running on coils and flexing all over. Anyway, lets get to the action!

Yeah it's fun, but it was pretty rocky. I just noticed that the rocks chewed the **** out of my rear tires lol. Took chunks.

I don't trust jumping spindles, those snouts snap off so easy.

So? Don't be scared. done a few little baby jumps STOCK. it's still a kick in the pants. Also landed so hard on my truck with just spindles it lifted off the ground on the jounce lol (and if i'm bull-s*itting then ill go straight to hell!) It'll take more than you think!

this was the first, smallest jump of the bunch. the others were like 3 in a row in castaic that we mobbed through. Oh, then i drove it 250miles to vegas from castaic.
