    This is not my truck (Im waiting on one of two deals to be made), its my friends, and we had the other day off and drove down to this empty lot, with all the melting snow, its MUDDY AS HECK! We had a little fun and washed it up at my house after. Just thought you might get a kick out of seeing it. Its a 4x4, so I told him he could plow for me, (not really). The other day unfortunately, he broke the drive shaft.

    I am getting a Ford (most likely) so I can bring some dignity back to our school parking lot. Either a rusted out F-150 I can get for cheap, or a 88 PSD I can also get fairly chep, but with fuel, I think not.

    I am not sure how it fell of, but its rattled for a while and it might have had something to do with the fun he had with it in the winter (lotsa drifting).

    He hasnt hit anything, but his dad got it for him like that cheap.

    He has a set of offsets in the front, and the back tires are normal, so the front sticks out, and the back sits in a few inches. Its quite the truck.

    Was that the most mud you could find farmerkev Around here there are a lot of river bottoms and gravel/sand pits that can very easily swallow a truck. (ask me how i know) But lately I tend to steer clear of the mud I like my truck too much to beat up on it. I will probly be buying a beater truck so i keep my 99 in good shape. Or just keep riding with my friends and watching them beat up their trucks. :D

    HAHA well I didnt take any pictures of that day but trust me it was stuck preety good. i was heading down a hunting trail to go duck/goose hunting when all of a sudden I just felt the whole truck sink i get out mud up to the bottom the the doors kicked it in 4 low and hammered it and it barely i mean barely pulled itself out of the ruts. This was after I put on a new set of 285 mud terrains I wouldnt have had a chance with the stock 245s.

    No, its not THAT muddy, but for in the middle of the city, not too bad at all, two alleys come together in an old abondoned lot. We couldnt stay long to do much more, because the neighbors probably didnt like it, one lady saw us and sat there giving us the "evil eye" so we threw up a little more mud that way and left. We were NOT supposed to be there, so we didnt want to stay long, because well, look at the truck, it doesnt exactly blend in.
