NW Broncofest pics!

A bunch more pics came in. There are literally hundreds, but I shaved that down to a dozen for now. I knew one of the guys had taken some shots that show the real angle of that hill we were on, so, here ya go......(few other shots in there, and more coming).

Oh, sorry, I am just linking to Superford because some of the pics are high quality, easier to look at the thumbs and then open what you want.

more Broncofest pics


I should also mention Greg's green Bronco, in the same predicament as I was, was the only other truck with grippy tires that ended up "hanging us out on the ledge". He runs a 6" lift and 36" Swampers.

Re: NW Broncofest pics!

No vacations planned now for the next decade or so. [img]images/graemlins/beach.gif[/img]

So, no need to keep this.

That Shirt is actually from last years NW Broncofest. states of Oregon/Washington in the background, Bob K's Wife's!!!!! Bronco in the foreground. Front left has a small 2BigBroncos logo.

Yea muddy, since there was knowone behind Greg when it was his turn, we had to get a bit creative on a winch anchor point for him.

No Burned, not ready for rolling action yet.

Re: NW Broncofest pics!

Yea, these were better pics because they show how steep the hill is if you look at the person/tree in the background, and look at how the camera is up above everthing else. Also, the angle of the antenna. We were happy to come down off that rock! I didn't really care too much about rear quarter damage at that point. As it turned out, there was one pic after showing the rear quarter on top of the rock. Nice thing is the tire stayed ahold of the side of the rock long enough that I eased it down onto the quarter, which was just high enough to only scrape over the rock, no damage. The bumper did pull backwards at the end just a little.

and Yes, EFI is nice, never a hiccup. I needed my feet for braking, not trying to start a dead engine!

uhhh yeah... if he was already double-footing the brake, he would've had to get out the Hi-Lift to hold that sucker if the engine died on that hill! [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: NW Broncofest pics!

Yeah, those pics really show how steep it really was [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img].
I have a question for ya though...why not shift into Neutral, and roll down off the rock? Id think it would be easier to inch along if you dont have all that torque (from being in 4lo) to fight.

Re: NW Broncofest pics!

Rep't, good idea. But, I had got to a point where I was teetering and honestly thought I could roll any minute. Going forward was a sure way to test that. So, at that point, didn't matter where the shifter was, I wasn't going to move until the cable was on the back, to keep that end from passing my front end. Once the cable was on, it was actually good in 4wd low, it pulled forward real slow, cable stayed firm and brought the back down as I inched forward.
