a little dirt mount flex, no bumpstops at the moment.

dropped the coil right out, need extensions and limit straps.



just a little hill climb action, nothing major



drives fine on the highway at 70mph, no goofy noises(other than crazy loud 3" cherry bomb exhaust and the constant whirring of the 3500), crawls all over in the dirt. need to get rid of the bfg's though. needs some real meat.

getting a little bit of snow again.

went snow drift busting on the side roads and in the park, went pretty great. other than the 4' monster that only grabbed one side of the jeep and spun me 180 in traffic.


and something fun from the yard. i would think that purchasing the whole tub would have been easier(and cheaper to fix) the tub was rust and dent free before the plasma got to it.

while useful, that's not it.

I'll be mounting them in a couple days.
