I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend, and I want to say thank you to all of those that gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we can all enjoy the lives we live here at home.
I had a really great time at the Silver Lake sand dunes this weekend. We all went for my buddy's bachelor party. We were slow getting up Saturday morning, but once we did, we were off to the dunes!
My one buddy (the bachelor) unfortunately cooked his starter sitting in line to get into the dunes. Time for some fenderwell headers I think for him. So he didn't even get to play
The orange '70 bronco's fuel pump quit after 2 hours or so. He loaded her up after that.
The red and white Chevy held up good all weekend.
I certainly put my bronco through it's paces. I can now say that I am confident in the front suspension build
I did a lot of drag racing, but when I wasn't doing that I was zipping around the dunes like a pre-runner because the truck rides PHENOMENAL! Could not be happier for it's first time out. Still some things I would like to tweak, but absolutely no complaints.
Now just enjoy the pictures and videos! Make sure and check out the last one, it's a doozy!
Ready to rock 'n roll
It was a real nice trip down to Mears.
The wind was rippin' across the dunes on Saturday! Felt like standing in a sand blaster.
Pretty busy out there.
Had to tow the black chevy out after the starter quit. Couldn't quite make it up the hill without some help, but didn't want to let off either!
Just a little flexing at the hotel parking area. Still not quite as good as I want, but I have some ideas.
Don't look as big as they did in person, but here is some moguls at 50 mph or so.
A little drag racing. Wish I would've have gotten some against real competition. LOL
And the highlight of the weekend was hitting the jump with the rzr's and buggies! I couldn't believe how well this big bronco flew and landed. Can use some shock adjustments to help control the rebound, but I was very impressed!
And here is a video of the jump. Guy from DuneTV did the editing, I thought it was hilarious! Thanks to him I will now be embracing the rust, and naming the bronco the RUST OR BUST BRONCO!
