STUCK big time stuck time

DId a little trail called China Wall last weekend. My girl Julee loves MUD (not my thing) so I went for it, right down into this ditch without checking the depth first, almost out of it when we hit a rock and high centered.

This stuff was like concrete mix and the BII was going nowhere fast.
Took a 90 4 runner (stock) with a strap, an hour of digging and rock stacking, lots of dirty clothes, and 7 people to get her out. Came very close to leaving her up there for the night. Thiws picture was right when it happened before all the tire spinning, shes covered in dark brown chocolate mud right now, I detailed the interior yesterday but this mud can stay on the outside for a bit, I have only been stuck stuck like this in the BII 3 times to date so its like a trophey...after spinning the tires a bit and trying to pull her out she sunk up to the rockers in the goo

A winch is my next mod

I am now a spotter and she is a co driver (BII never looked so good)

I got the coolest ring you guys have ever seen, its Tungsten Carbide Steel and very shiny, we went to breakfast on saturday and I said "oh look a jewelry store, lets go look for a ring for you" We picked out two rings in about 5 minutes, and they both fit us perfectly without even sizing!!

How is that for meant to be?

Never been so happy in my life........ and let me apologize now for my lack of involvment on the board lately, its spring fever :)

More mud, SLaughterhouse Gultch 04/14/07

Julee REALLY likes mud so I let her have at it

She dented my door pretty well and we overheated my rear ARB until it was leaking air and the rear diff started spitting gear lube out of the vent tube...fingers crossed the ARB is okay

I will now be doing a couple of mods to the 8.8 to keep the temps down
Last thing I want to do 1 month before Moab is pull my 8.8 apart......

Those are some good videos. Did she ever get over that ledge?

I don't use MySpace as much as I should. My only "friends" are my wife and a friend she grew up with. I guess I should add some friends from "Serious Explorations". I'll send you an invite. I'll be the one in the cowboy hat (I'm not a hick, but I was at a rodeo and had to dress the part :D ).

not that one, no. But she did climb another just beside it that I was unable to get up in 3-4 attempts. Of course my GF just walks right up it....she picked a better line, she's a natural!

Oh and thanks :)
more videos coming soon enough
