I don't really have time to get it dirty. I usually just ride with other people. But, once I fix everything up front, it will be like it is. I don't like going through mud as much as I do Trails. I want mine as a trail rig and a beach cruiser. But, on the east coast, there isn't a whole lot of beaches where you are allowed to drive.

In North Carolina there are lots of beaches. If you go down in the off season you can drive on most of the beaches.

There is another mud bogg right up 360 on June 25. It took me three washings to get the mud off my X.

Thanks for reminding me why I don't like going through boggs myself. Good stuff though!

Update (September 8, 2005)

Well, it's been awhile since I've updated this, so I wanted to type a little bit. I am currently going back to school to get my associates degree in Automotive Technology and getting my ASE certifications for Master Tech. Basically, what I'm saying is I haven't had time for anything. I did try and make a ASMI Air Intake work out for me, but it went a little sour when the filter got wet somehow when my truck was parked which allowed the engine to idle a little strange. I got rid of it. I am still working on my F-150 handles, but that's on total hold; so is my front driveshaft dilema. Hopefully I'll have time to finish it next semester. Here are a few links:
