Re: 4x4s and Wheeling Rigs...

Hey Timbuk, My BC buddy. Those big wheels on the quad make it kind of squirrley on the top end but it will fling softball sized clumps of mud in the air, and on the driver.
The stude was a challange. A dent in every square 6". I worked with an "Old time" body man who taught me the dying art of leading body panels. The sheet metal was thick enough to actually stick weld on. It got a lot of looks and compliments when it was done and driving around. Traded it for a 78 Z-28/T-top. That ws a mistake.

Very nice. I would like to have one. However, I don't think there is one left in Iowa, that's not rusted out.

Here is my Series III Land Rover. I put a winch on it three years ago and started getting it muddy.

Re: 4x4s and Wheeling Rigs...

Here is one of my 71 blazer on the last decent wheeling trip I took.

Thought I would add an ACTION pic to the thread!!

Here in NY there really isn't much land to wheel on, and none of it's public.
But hey, thats why I bought my bus! So I can move back to COLORADO where the real fun can be had!

This pic is a few years old. It now has one tons, detroits, 40's, a ramsey 9000lb winch, and a real soft top.
I have a very nice double wall top for sale for a first gen blazer if anyone is interested.
