    My lights are good. Just a few dents. Backed into a stump on big sandy while trying unstick hunter and matt. Nice dent on the back bumper. Look's like armor's on the list.

    The 4runner wrecked shop this weekend though. Only trouble was at the bottom of west line where I found myself in some soup and I couldnt quite clear the bypass by where roger pulled cable.

    I've got a bent tie rod to go with that and I need to pull my front wheels and figure out what else is rubbing since I already blew out all the mud.

    Oh ok. Yea it did great considering the lack of grip you had.

    Damn, that sucks. I still have yet to check my truck over. I'll probably start cleaning it this evening and then assess the damage. Do you have an idea of when you might have bent the tie rod?

    No idea, its drivers side so I'm thinking it was dropping into the creek or coming down flat rock. But it got me home and I can park it while I'm in Nevada and fix it at at my buddy's when we get back so no big deal.

    I just spent 2 hours blowing all the mud off the truck including pulling both the front tires to check for anymore damage. It's amazing where all I found mud, my brakes were completely packed even after a 200 mile trip. I still have several more hours of work before it approaches clean.

    Oh ok. Yea a tie rod is fairly easy to change.

    Yea I understand. That is why I said that I was going to start cleaning this evening. It will probably take me a couple of hours a day for the next few days with the pressure washer plus a couple of runs through the auto carwash to get it back where I want it hahaha.

    Lol yep. When I was installing my skids the other day, I found a big chunk of mud on top of my frame. There is no telling how long it had been there.

    I'm not looking forward to cleaning the inside, between the dust, the dog and a few mud holes with the windows down its a mess.
