Took my Ex on its first trip

We took our 2005 Ex on a Cub Scout camping trip this weekend, we got 21-22 on the highway.

The campsite had a narrow trail to navigate, I had to pull in the mirrors but the king of the road worked its way through the trees with ease. We had Scout outing to attend and we filled it full of people. The only hitch was a patch of wet soil caused the 7000 l truck to get stuck in the mud, mine i a 2wd. With a tug on a rope from my buddy's old Dodge truck we were out and moving.

I love this truck. I gave her a nice cleanup and bath today, ready for the next trek.

Hate to say lie o meter.

I am going to do some suspension mods to increase the handling ability and load.
