Felt good to use the truck for what it's intended for again - pics & vid

Finally found a place in Missouri where I can stretch the truck's legs a little; it's called Saint Joe State Park. Really nice ORV park with a sand flat area, lakes, picnic facilities, etc.

There's not a whole lot there, but it was the first time I've been over 30 MPH in the dirt in a long time. Everything out here is rocky and heavily wooded trails, so sand and wide open space was fun for a change.

Also helped out a 1st gen taco that was mired in a deep mud hole. I set up a nice right angle pull using the snatch block and a couple of trees and winched him right out.

Spent a long time looking for a good jump, couldn't really find one, but I did find this. Blasting across the creek I could just barely get her off the ground.

You are correct, hitting water at speed can in no way be beneficial for the truck.

Sure is fun though.

chase, do you have a CAI? since you have glass what did you do about the intake hole? my intake gets dirty 100x quicker since its exposed. is that what you guys are worrying about when hitting the water fast?

I hate you Chase. I miss LA more and more and our old stomping grounds. NC and MO don't hold a candle to 'em.

Truck looks good man, as always
