Default My Jimmy's first mud bath

So i finally got the new engine in, and cut my fenders again just a little.
so i decided that i wanted to play around.
I went to acouple different trails, one of them a house was being built on *one of my friends land* and i completley killed it, got stuck in mud that went up to my headlights, smart move on my part.
then after winching my self out with my Hi lift jack! Yes yes, i did say that with my hi lift jack, it does work.

i picked up my girl, and we hit acouple trails by her house, her first time ever. she was flipping out i about flipped it acouple times, because i had to go up at an angle where her side was about two feet from water.
ehhh not the smartest, but it was fun and now shes addicted.

heres the pictures of the after math.
not too great, the sun was really blazing down on so there was bad bad lens flare












bahaha and my mirror fell off, and i had some duct tape, so here is the rigged version of my mirror



Sooner or later i will get it completely covered and have some pictures of the fun it self.

if anyone lives in the myrtle beach/ grand strand area hit me up!

With tires like that you'd expect a better coating lol. Still, nice pics. Can't wait to see the thing fully coated!!

when you lift it look into Dick cepek Crusher tires. they are the ones that i think ride/grip and look alot better than the grapplers.

and if i could relift my truck i would so go bigger, a 8" lift.
gah maybe next summer.

Anything is possible with enough time and money. Hell, look at that new machinist building an 18" lift to fit 54" mud boggers on a blazer. That is just pure insanity though lol.
Question for you. 8" all suspension lift, or would that be a 6" suspension lift combined with 2" BL or shackles?
