Went wheeling last Friday in the snow and rocks, was an interesting trip to say the least. Got out to the trail at around 4 in the afternoon. Aired down and gave her hell. I broke the first ice and crossed the creek. Got up the trail and the combination of snow and slick rocks and 50 degree temps made climbing difficult. Then it went down hill, my truck died on the rock pile the bronco towed it off and almost to pavement when it started again and ran like a champ, the bronco wanted to do some climbing so he passed me and went over the rocks with ease thanks to his clearance and flexy sas. and my truck died again... So the bronco was stuck on the uphill side of me with no way to get around me. He attempted the rest of the trail only to blow a dana 44 long side and stub shaft. So we 2wd back to my truck and left them there over night. Returned Saturday to put a fuel pump in my truck and drive them both home.

Nice Pics. Looks like you Wheel Right. Lifts are nice to have, but a good set of tires and skill will bring you farther on the trail.
