the competition was frigging amazing on sat, lots of cool jeeps and rock buggys ( do want a buggy ! )

i've always ran just about anything, with 32's i stuck to greens,blues,light blacks. with 33's i run blues and blacks.

i really need to throw on like some 36s or bigger ! ( i would love to ! ) but i would need to get a trailer to tow it cause of my stupid 4 banger engine ).

i have been eyeing the new dodge ram 1500, that is one sexy truck.

anybody wanna buy my 02 WJ ? lol

and what happens if i break an axle shaft or something off roading and need to tow home?

much prefer a trailer, plus it wouldn't put so many un-necessary miles on the tires

Yeh, the new ram is friggin sexy... oh man it's nice, lots of space... but with the one i want and options i want im looking at close to 40 grand!!!!! i might wait a bit till they get some " used - new " one in, i dont mind saving 12 grand if the truck has 20,000 miles on it or something.

i went to the dealer yesterday, i was eyeballing the 09 ram 1500, quad cab, navigation, black leather interior, 5.7L hemi.. oh man..... though, they didnt have any of the ones with the " RAM BOXES " in the back, he said they werent to popular, but i really like they way they look.

anyhow, here are some pictures of wheeling last weekend @ Rausch Creek, thanks morgan and logan for the pics.

Imma wait a few months after i start my new job working the night shift ( 11pm-7am ) to see how my days start to pan out before i decide this would make a nice daily driver / occasionally pull heep to trails sorta deal.


if not, maybe an SRT8 Grand Cherokee, or charger or something.

I must say a blacked out GC SRT8 would look perfect by a blacked out wrangler well soo would a blacked out ram come to think of it and you could tow the blacked out wrangler. i made an image in my head. haha
