Local Wheeling in Denton
Brian Moake and I went Wheeling in Denton today, playing in the mud and crud. For those that don't know, B.F. Goodrich AT tires aren't real good in mud and crud :-). I happen to own 2 and 2/3rds. Two good on the right side, and two nearly bald on the driver's side. Fortunately, Brian has good mudders on his J-10, plus a snatch strap. We used it several times while we were spraying mud everywhere. I should say he used it to pull me around :-). Everything went real good for about 2 hours until we went through 3 deep mudholes one after the other, we made it to the other side and had taken a break, when we noticed that he had broken motor mounts. We decided at that point to call it quits, and head home. On the way home, we discovered that I had destroyed the front pump in my transmission. We limped home in Brian's wounded J-10, and my GW is down for the count at the moment. Brian happens to have a 727 he's not using, thanks to Mike Saltsgavers, and he generously let me borrow it. I'll get it swapped out this week, and rebuild my old one to return. Thanks to both Mike and Brian.
Just thought I'd add a little to this.
We first got there and saw a Ram that had sank up past the front
bumper and had been pulled out by a TJ.
Their late model Nissan was sitting water about 2-3" below the bumper. After a nice tug he's out. (I need a sticker for my fender) Lindel, having sat in a really slick spot couldn't seem to get it going...
We all got turned around and were heading out. once we got around the "stuck spot" they disappeared.
Does anybody know if you can get little nissan stickers? hehe...
Don't let him fool ya... He went everywhere I went. If the tires
hadn't been bald he would have probably made it through the hole that
turned him side ways. The other two yanks were just a matter of
