that was a thick and sloppy hole (giggity). we all knew as soon as you hit it that it was bad. it was so thick that as you moved through the hole the mud moved forward with you rather than flowing around the bronco. and it was so deep you could barely see the tops of the driver's side tires. wish i had a video of that.

Teaser

Touche. Here's my teaser. Going to Indian Valley, again, weekend after this. This year my wife has made it clear that she wants to celebrate Mother's day. Usually I get a pass because of the whole "deceased mother" thing, but not this year. Saturday the 20th. Be there. Here's the coordinates 39.155589, -122.587887. I'll swap the picture out after lunch when I get the updated image of my clean and shiny Bronco taunting the mud and dust gods. 1636 Hours 5/9/17 as promised. Here it is on Saturday before the wash at the gas station, in the wash bay, and sitting in my driveway today ready to get dirty again.

Normally I don't bag on jeepers, jeeps are alright. They have a gnarly turning radius, great clearance stock, and removable doors and top. However, this guy, just takes the cake when it comes to mall crawlers. I'm pretty sure he saw me take the picture of his shiny monstrosity fueling up behind my mud covered beast.

You shoulda seen the mud falling off while I rinsed it. Normally I wash it at home with a custom soap blend, but I needed a pressurized water line to break the mud off so I could clearly see the rear bumper bracket on the passenger side. Turns out, it's cracked, it'll straighten out for sure, but it'll never be the same.

LMAO its getting fun for sure. I'm enjoying wheeling every week and fixing all my little issues. Today I had to readjust the steering wheel as apparently I manged to knock the sleeve to the point the steering wheel was ~90 off center lol. I also received a new reservoir (pn fotx-9ko44A) that began leaking right after my hp pump quit. When I went to move the truck after washing off the 400lbs of mud I noticed a pinhole leak at the 30yr old parts truck donor oe tank. Put another one on order that should arrive thursday via prime. Even if theres an issue, it wont be a problem since theres an aux tank! Heres a few shots from Windrock I skipped by earlier

Topless!

Probably the single greatest day for me was when I finally removed the top for the truck's 1st time. Yeah, I popped that cherry!!!

I spent weeks coming up with a design to lift the top off and then store it on the ceiling. After finalizing my design, I stumbled across this product, SOLD! Figured I give it a try, if it didn't work I always had a backup plan already.



So with the winch setup, off came the top.



Perfect fit!!! (Thank God, lol)


And here she sits in all her TOPLESS glory!!!


My son and I in our 1st of many cruises without the top


Had to take a selfie!!!


As much as I love my Bronco topless, I had to find something to protect the interior on bad weather days, so I opted for the Softtopper. Man, great product and even better customer service!






The softtop is a nice addition that allows me to enjoy the open air. It works really well in bad weather! Love it!!!

Got to work from home today, so I had a chance to wrench a little during breaks. Got the steering wheel nice and recentered, got this little booger out

Slapped the new one in and got washed in eau de unleaded

Decided to drain the tank through the access hole using a submersible pump salvaged from work so I could keep the 19 or so gallons or so that was still in the tank, and wrestled the tank and skid plate off the truck. Hopefully the new one comes early enough Thursday that I can get a coat or two of paint on it and have it back in by Friday afternoon. Hook everything up and test it before driving the 2hrs to AL, wheel it, and 2 hrs back on Saturday.



Btw laying on gravel sucks as I'm sure many of you are well aware.

Since I'm fixing breakage, here's a video of a slick spot where I managed to pop a tiny little slit into my heater core hose (I have no idea how).
Yn4I7offFZc
It was right at the barb and already had a screw type hose clamp. There was plenty of hose there, so I just cut off an inch or so with the split, tightened it back up and kept on rollin.

It turned out the ruts to the left kicked me into the side and dented the door a little and put a nice little dent below the drivers side tail light. Also picked up a few lbs of clay there too.

We got engaged in Vida, Oregon on the Mackenzie river back in 2014. It was early spring, we took the Bronco. It had a failing fuel pump (which I was unaware of) which I ended up cutting an access hole for and swapping out shortly after we got home. The whole way up over the mountains and down onto 101 in Oregon the poor girl would stammer under load, pull over, shut off, wait, restart, GO. On departure day I swapped out the fuel filter for a spare I had and we made it home with no issues aside from a bad thermostat letting my truck get far too hot. Laying on gravel does suck. I'm glad we have an asphalt parking lot and my wife got me a creeper. @Greasmoner I'm totally with you. Also, I'm jealous of your Bronco crew. All my wheelin' buddies have dodges and yeeps.

To be sure, they are a great bunch of folks to hang with. There's a handful that have their trucks under the knife lately or it'd be a crowd. There's another bunch of old timers I haven't seen in a while from the dixie chapter. We used to draw some sizeable lineups.

It'll happen again eventually

Look at that shine!

The first time up this little side trail I was solo and may not have taken the best line, but it sure felt awefully tipsy. I wanted video of it from the front to give me an idea how leaned over I was, so next time out we grabbed this clip
