It took a jeep on 44s with 2 winches and a bulldozer that the jeep anchored to to pull me out. Jeep was supposed to be a weak point so the bulldozer wouldnt rip me apart. Haha i wish i had pics of Recovery, but my phone died and i was driving. My buddies didnt take any that i knew of. We had been there for almost 5 hours before we finally got her out. Haha

I do have to admit my 30 something dinged me for $2500 two years ago, said he'd pay me back within 6 months........Figure that's about what I'll give Jack for graduation, and since Heath didn't graduate he got a GED if he still hasn't paid me by time Jack's gone I'll write it off for his graduation, 20 yrs late.
yup 18 and they're out...except our last one who is a tad special
somehow they all seem to keep hittin me for money until there isnt any...guess that says more about me than them but ...
its family, family is always first.

i remember when that stuff was sorta fun...now i just have a winch for just incase and have only used it once.
worst i ever did was planting my truck braced against two trees to pull a jeep back up a cliff that would have gone about another 300" if it went again seemed kinda fun at the time today it seems unnecessarily stupid

So, I swear, that some of the dumbest **** comes in on my shift at the shop. Walk in, it's my Monday, and sure enough, some how, a jack extension gets stuck in this guys brakes. Destroying the hub, brake drum, shoes, and just about every thing else on this wheel end. Its sitting back on my lot, untill i get parts in the morning. But, in the mean time, heres some pictures of the brake shoes. Haha. Only one i took.

Mounted and balanced 4 new Cooper's for the Ranger, and replaced the R rear upper shock mount. Soon as I get it aligned Jack can drive it to school. I'll be doing 6 more tires next week, ordered some Maxxis MT 255/85R16 for Jack. They're an inch taller than the stock Toyo's, not gonna drop his tach a lot but with an IDI he couldn't afford to go too big. Plus on a dually if I went any bigger he'd have needed spacers. I had to order some P weights for his steel wheels, all I have were MC's for Ford aluminum wheels, some AW's and some ZN's. So damn happy the powers that be decided we need 20 different style of wheel weights.
Thinking I prolly should get some beads too, sometimes these dually wheels are hard to get balanced. Got a feeling these mudders will be in that category.
