Here are a couple of me running tanktrap out at hollister hills. It was no fun with no powersteering. Thats what got me into the situation. Also the 2.9 sat there idleing along fror maybe 10 minutes while my buddy hooked the winch line up to get me out.

here are a few after the bedbob. I hope I can have as many good memories in the new ranger as I did in my old one.

I'll make sure that you do. As soon as I get a 4Runner done I'm not going to be as worried about body damage (or any damage for that matter) as I was with the Explorer. :thumbsup: I plan on having some good memories with the new rig.
 






you will probably never forget watching me almost roll in a creek with ken cooke in my truck ;)
 












Where's the chop, Colin? :p 37s, winch, no doors...
 






Matt, that first pic from Hollister is screaming to be an avatar!!! :D

Colin you crack me up. Its a warn winch by the way.

Hey Bill how do I make the picture my avatar? I found those while running a few searches over on pirates. I know this new truck will bring alot of memories as well.
 






Nice pics :eek:

Here's how you upload an avatar-

1. Go to "User CP" at the top
2. "Edit Avatar" on the left
3. Downsize it to whatever the limit is
4. Upload :)

I tried setting your avatar up....BUT, since you are in a special user group("Brought to you by the letter" if ya know what I mean), it says your allowable avatar size is -1 X -1 pixels. You need to see Rick to change that.

Here is the resized pic I was trying to use.

you seem to find your self leaning on your side in ditches quite often dont you.

:D
 












I did usually find the driverside on the ground more then the driverside. Luckly the new ranger will have much more wheeltravel and hopefull be more stable so I wont find myself in that situation very often. I was pushing luck before with no cage. Now Im going to try to get a cage in the near future.

That's awsome Matt. I'm sure you meant driverside more than the passenger side, right? ;)
From what I remember you did have more damage on the driverside.
