I hate repacking bearings, water in T-case/trans, etc, so I stay out of water like that....
I had water in my center console.
When we crossed the creek, it was border line high as to what we would normally cross. There is only one way back out, and that is back across the creek. After I broke both the rear driveshaft, and front u-joint up on the hill, it started to pour buckets. That's when I started to get nervous.
Seeing his 42s disappear in front of me gave me a bad feeling. Knowing there was a TJ behind us on 31's gave me an even worse feeling. We rolled the dice, and almost got trapped. You can bet we'll be a little more aware of the weather next time.
Scored a set of FREE, MICKEY THOMPSON DRAG SLICKS. This guy was dropping them off @ the recycling center. He changed his setup & didn't want them cluttering up his small garage. It pays to use this place for my used oil. About 75% life left in these 32x14.5-15's. Just in case I work up the nads to try a drag strip run, ONCE. Did I mention they were free & I'm a hoarder? Of course this "free deal" is going to cost me a call to Tom Woods asap.
Now if I can borrow a paint booth to lay down some Loden Green Metallic (w/a little extra metal flake).
I forget who had that sweet Green Golden Eagle that helped me decide to keep it the original color. Thanx guys!
