Re: whats ur funniest 4 wheelin incident?
I don't have any pics yet, but will get some today. I took the 89 out yesterday, trying to find a way to a trial behind the house. I finally made one, and went wheeling down the trial. I haven't been there in awhile, since I had my 4 wheeler. For the most part, the trail is open, only branches scratching the truck. Then I get to a wooded part. After figuring out the best way to go, I head between to trees. This is an uphill trail, and having open axles doesn't help any. So I go around this tree, then cut back to miss another, and then I heard a hissing sound. Didn't think anything of it at first, just kept going. Sort of. I didn't want to go anywhere, just spins. Hmm. Get out only to see the right rear tire popped off the bead and folded under the truck. I can't go up, basically stuck, and can't go down, a big a$$ tree branch is right at my back window. After a few minutes trying to figure out how to get out, I tried to back up some, maybe get away from this branch. Well, didn't work that way. The branch was an old maple, and didn't budge at all, but the back window did, all over my back and on the seat. Crap, and I'm about a mile in the woods. How the $%&# am I gonna get it outta here?? So I trudged back to the house, grabbed a bottle jack, 4 way, and one snow tire off the 97. Pushed the tire all the way there, and my back is paying for now. And for being a nice meaty mud/snow tire, it sucked in the mud. Almost got stuck on the trail getting to the road. I'll take some pics of the carnage and some of the trail. What fun. Hopefully next weekend I can do it again!!!!!
