    I wouldn't be able to do the dumb stuff I do, without someone to get me unstuck, so many more props to Kyle (Kmok). I'm still amazed at his will to put up with me, my truck, and the realization that I will get stuck, somehow, someway.

    I'm still kinda learning how to offroad. Getting better. I really, really want to to do some higher speed offroad stuff. The Mid-Travel kit will not help me in such thoughts. I think I'd be a lot better out in a desert running around. She ain't no rock crawler, not even a log crawler. Might be able to crest a dune or something though!!

    And that Bills 491 shot...fail is about 30 seconds away. I get stuck off camber real good right up where the black truck is. Couldn't get out the D/S, water was just below the door. I did alright in that...creek?...other than that one spot.

    5 lugger has done well in spots. Did well in the snow overall. A few "nice job baby" taps on the steering wheel, slammed her around a couple times. Next time I go out, seriously need to put some damn sand in the back, not once have I gone out with sandbags. A couple fails could have possibly been avoided with that little addition.

    I currently run 30x9.5x15 Hercules Trail Diggers. No issues with rubbing whatsoever.

    I actually did alright out in the snow. Made it more exciting!

    You would be surprised what a 5-lugger can do against terrain. If there is anything I've learned through the years is that you become a better driver because you have to pick the right lines.

    ...A little lift and a longer head start never hurt either. :D
