How NOT to put out a fire and other fun stuff

ok we had a nice fire going and it died down so we stared covering it up so we could leave.. after a while of shoveling someone was like "matt just back your truck up and throw dirt on it"

well it sounded like a good idea at the time.. until it stopped sinking and i was laying on the diff lol

we filled the holes back in..


then a hill climb that looked good from a distance.. then i caved to peer pressure.. again.

Im glad i didnt make it because coming down was going to really suck! just going half way backwards sucked enough. i know your not supposed to lock the brakes up but Low range on these trucks just isn't low enough

another random pic for the stickers.

nope, and thats where the high lift saved my ***, just stuck it in the hitch and started jacking it up, as i lifted it, it rolled forward until the point it looked like it was gonna come back and hit me so i just hopped in and drove off it

i'm not fixing the front end, i'm missing 6 teeth off the rear spider gears so im gonna get a lunchbox locker for that and just run 2wd until i get the SAS done

i would HIGHLY recommend a highlift to anyone who spends any time in the dirt.. its saved my *** like 5 times now.
