Damn! He doesn't HAVE to live up to his name, does he?

You wouldn't believe how slowly it rolled over. We were right behind him, and I actually told Shelia "Watch, it is going to stop and rock back onto the wheels."

Nope, all the way over, nice, slow and easy.

Hope he was alright. Sure wish I could have gone.

That was near the beginning, wheeled the rest of the day. Had his 10 year old nephew with him who thought it was cool.

Wish you could have made it also, it was a great day of wheeling.

In the gravel pit, Shelia and I were sitting on top of a mound of dirt, not real high, but steep sides. Truckman comes flying up the opposite side, catches air at the top and stops it exactly beside us, facing the other way. Looks over at Shelia and calmly says "hi".
Laughed our asses off.


Have my trail top on the Jeep right now as I can't get the soft top on until I bang out a few dents. Can tell you, fiberglass is way stronger than people think.

They call it "Tippy"
As you can tell, It was just an easier way to check my front drive shaft, to see how it was holding up.

It was a lot easier to do a lube job on the chassis that way. Never thought of that.
