You know you just need the ones with that Green X with the neon yellow straps front and rear. :D
 






If you look very closely you can see a tree, which is missing some bark right about the same spot our new smudge is-in fact I think this may have been the golden moment--
That is the bad tree.

so that little rock is right after this-you have to make a sharp left and try to squeeze through

I am still trying to figure out what this was built from

These folks were having a blast- looked like a fun time!

I wonder if this truck has ever been muddy--I mean real muddy.

It has now

we decided not so much on this trail and took another one

on this hill there was a pit to the right-going to the left seemed like the thing to do but had it's drawbacks also-as in you went sidways up the hill facing the woods--
getting sucked to the right made you go into a hole which flipped the front end off the ground on everyone who passed it

timing was off on this one but he was in the air-coming down in this picture

here's flip4ford popping a wheelie--and loosing some lemonade

And this little bronco 2 is a dang good little truck. I was amazed how well it got around

May have popped a wheely-- don't know about the lemonade though (only my laundry lady knows for sure :) I hit that hill all wrong, hit it too hard, and bounced all over it, but I made it up. Man it was an ooogey mess. Used my winch for the first time on my own truck to get up another hill, and watched everyone behind me do the exact same. People with mud terrains where getting around-- most people with all terrains where having problems. Over all I think my little exploder did quite well.

The little BII in the above pics has dana 35 front and 8.8 rear- linclon locked - He paid less the $200 for the thing. He broke the window last year- and I gave him new ones 4 months ago. :)

The black rig was an old blazer highly modified. His name is wildman-- he breaks something every trip out (this trip was a broken rear driveshaft) 20 minutes he was back on the trails using his spare.

The big bronze colored jeep is in my 4x4 club here. We all missed it when CLint (happy jacks little silver BII) pulled out 2 jeeps at once, that would have been great to see.

I know allot of these guys from wichita 4x4 club, the offroad gang (www.kansas4x4.net, and ford truck enthusiasts (www.ford-trucks.com) web sites. Great bunch of people.

My next time out will be March 19-21st at tuttle, April -?, May will be @ Wynoka, and of course the 4th annual "Tin Cup" run the second week of August. (Tin Cup, Red Cone, Iron Chest, and Holy Cross passes) Wifey only allows 1 weekend a month for wheelin trips-- (and the annual CO run.) Apparently I am somewhat of an offroad addict---

Hello My name is Flip and I am an Offroad Junkie.
 
























I can't. Seems I only have a couple of pics I can post at a time on this site. Same thing over on another Ford site. I can't post pics. Rick asked to put my 44 outer conversion on this site and gave me a few months free membership. That membership expired and I'm just a regular user and I have two pics on other threads in my user cp. I can delete those but would only be able to post up two for a while. Then delete them and post two more. So I save those.

That site has public and private parts. I didn't realize that was part of the private stuff. I wouldn't have posted the link if I had. That's just the only place I have to post pics right now.

It was some pics of Ian and Travis in "Hank" (red BroncoII), Chad in "Elvis" (maroon Sport), Mark in his X, "Jr." (gray Bronco II) and the two heepies Clint pulled in with it, and Curtis in his Rubi.

Yup we have the wheelin sickness bad. We name our trucks. They are part of the family.

They are not that good but I could send them to anyone who wants them. I disabled auto run and pulled the pics off the wally world cd with out all the stuff they try to put on your puter.

From the looks of the fender and the wheelbase, I'm going to guess a K5 blazer.

I was never muddy when I owned it. I hate cleaning that stuff. Plus there isn't much around here. :D

You can host the pictures on photobucket or something similar and just use the little picture icon to post pictures, it will allow you to post as many as you want to that way.
