    Here are some new pics of my truck being used to off road to a destination! I went through such narrow trails that it suffered extensive scratches in the outer coat of mud :)

    A sample from a 30+ year old pile of asphalt:

    My buddy with a VERY old jar, still sealed substance inside of it :hungry:

    This is the last strip of road, drops over a very steep bank onto the highway. They must have excavated it when they put in the new road:

    These were everywhere...property markers?

    Those are surveying markers called monuments, and you're right they are property markers.

    Man, that lump of asphalt could be worth some big bucks. You kept it I hope.

    That makes sense. There was also a sign that read "Any intentional damage inflicted to Survey Markers will result in a $250 fine".

    It was hung right near those monuments and bearing trees

    I WISH it were bald. Its got a bit left. The rears have just under half tread left and the fronts are slightly less. When they do wear down I will be able to swap them out for new wheels and better tires :)

    Thanks! Its funny you can tell there are about a million scratches in the fender flares, but mostly only in the caked mud. Thats what I get for using a very narrow ATV trail to get to my destination
