Inaugural Mudding
 
Went to a friend's house and spent about 7 hours replacing all 4 ball joints and the front axle u joints. To celebrate, we took the truck out back to their "mud hole." It was the first time I've taken this truck out in anything other than a dry pasture.

Working on the truck:

Needless to say, Cooper Zeon LTZ's aren't the best in the mud. They didn't clean out at all. I got stuck twice.

The rescue truck was an 04 2500 Suburban Quadrasteer on 33" mud tires.

Yup those tires definitely look like they wouldn't perform too well in the mud. Looks like a ton of fun though and that's definitely a nice looking 2nd gen! Thanks for sharing!

Did all that mud on your left front throw off the balance of the wheel?

I had to drive about 2.5 hours home and it was shaking a bit. :shy:

How are your Federal Couragias wearing? I may be able to get a set for $1100 installed, and was looking hard at them. Hopefully I could get 40k miles out of em.
