Default First time mudding...2nd time off-roading.

Well the film is of a mud puddle area where a lot of logging has been going on. Second time I also took the truck over some very ROUGH logging roads. Let's just say the suspension takes a beating and everything in the truck gets tossed. I gotta take it easy so I do not tear off my front and rear bumpers. I bent the bracket for my trailer light harness though. It was very fun...had some aggressive tires in the rear, but up front it was street. 3 minutes of fun equal to almost two hours of spraying mud off.

Future mods: Front brush guard with fogs...D hooks up front so I can get pulled even though I mud ALONE. No one ever wants to tackle the roads I go on even in their lifted vehicles. I want a 2" lift to give me a tad more clearance to avoid any under damage. But for a 2wd she is FUN. Sorry for quality it was filmed with my cell phone.

Got some pictures of two days after before I washed her. I'll have to get them when I get camera out of truck. The scream is when I sprayed mud all over my girl. And yes at 2:25 I about crapped my pants when I couldn't steer so I PRAYED.

Before the wash:



Should've taken a picture of the front...it was WORSE

After the wash and my Flowmaster 40 series muffler installed with a walmart tip


Finished my system install...too much bass for me, but it'll do...I've had it for YEARS and it still hits new. The HU is a Dual 7" flip out touchscreen that works brand new

I have just empty space there. I'm waiting to install my two fogs until I figure out room wise from the hooks and brush guard.

It sure looks like you were having fun. I got dizzy watching you go in circles.

Yeah only damage from it before I purchased it. Just cosmetic damage...plus little rock chips. UGH! I don't even have more than 5 and it drives me insane.

Only reason I didn't get dizzy driving is because I was always looking where I was going to let off gas or steer away. Did not want to meet the two trailers and the truck(far right of camera) that day. As you see I ALMOST met the embankment. I was like oh crap -prays- when I saw that I was not going the intended way.

Ha ha..When the all the wheels start sliding on the greasy mud, watch out. You have to find yourself a bigger piece of real estate to go safely, crazy on.
