Thumbs up First time wheelin'

...And I gotta say I'm addicted. I stopped to get gas after work yesterday and needed to make a u-turn to get back on the highway. The dirt lot that I usually turn around in was a mud lot because of the rain we've been getting, so I put it in 4 auto since I would be going from pavement to mud and back to pavement quickly. It was short, but it was a blast.

Here's a pic of her after we got home:

HeHe, my Ram looks dirtier by the time I get to the end of my driveway! You'll need better tires pretty soon, and maybe a winch. You'll know you need a winch when you really get stuck, as in, you have to crawl out a window! Yes, it's addictive.

Thanks! One of the reasons there isn't more mud is the tires. I'll be going with ATs when its time to replace them. Not sure I want to do anything serious enough to require a winch though lol, this is my DD.

I was 18 when I said the same thing about my 1960 Willys Wagon DD, then one fine March day I decided to go fishing, and being left stranded in a mud hole the size of texas about 20 miles from town... all my rigs get a winch if it is even going to see one mile of gravel road in its life with me.

I hate mudding, every stuck I ever got was in Mud... Snow Wheeling and rock crawling are my forte. God bring the SNOW... I want to do my anual Turkey Day run.

Unfortunately, it looks like the tires will have to wait. The chip in my windshield that became a crack last week, and was fixed by Safelite, is still spreading so it looks like I may be on the hook for my deductible for a new windshield.
