Lizard Gulch with the truck formally known as the TURD.

Dave was smiling ear to ear all afternoon. It was a beautiful afternoon. We went from the exit to the fence and back to the exit so we ran the full trail both directions. Then we stopped to help a Mennonite who had his 2wd Ford stuck down by the river. It was an easy unstuck. The tan 80 is Eric K's one of the newest members of WWOR.

Here are the photos I took.

It was hard getting photos because with just 3 rigs we moved very fast.

Thanks for the pics Eric. I had a great time. The two barrel on the Ramcharger worked wonderful. It only died once. Did I say I had a great time? If not I had a great time. It's nice to not be the one taking the bypasses or at the end of the tow rope. It was sweet. Thanks to Eric, Dave, and Eric for going on the maiden voyage of the new and improved TURD with me.

Oh and we forgot the two casualties of the TURD on the trail.

Some bonehead took the bolts out of the hardtop and put quick release pins in the top. It quick released the top right off the first time it flexed hard on an incline.

Also the spare tire carrier sort of just fell off. Check out the welds!

Glad you had fun Dave. I know what a differance it is to switch to a better vehicle.

You've got to do something about that paint job though. :lame:

What's wrong with the paint job? The camo was started on it when I bought it so we decided to finish it. I let the girls decide how it was going to be painted. Since they have a part in this wheelin thing they picked the colors. I'm just the driver and the mechanic and I think Trevor said it right when he thought it couldn't get any uglier. And yes it is dark pink, light pink, purple and black. What's the matter Ron, your truck not tough enough to wear pink? :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

at least we could never loose you on the trails:rotfl:
Lose, the spare tire and the top did come loose on the trail.

As far as losing him, I think the only place that he would be camouflaged in Idaho is next to a spray painted RR car. Even in town or in a parking lot that rig is going to stick out. It is not very stealth.

I don't think stealth is the look I was going for....I believe obnoxious, gaudy, horrendously different is more the look that was desired and pretty much achieved. The more I look at it the more I like it just because it is so offensive.

Ramcharger - $1300
Paint - $50
The looks it gets in Walmart Parking Lot - PRICELESS

:drive: :rotfl: :thumb:

HA! Offensive. You are going to have to do more than that.

It reminds me of a story. We had an old 81 Subaru Wagon 4wd when we were in Montana. It was the biggest POS there ever was. No body panels were straight. We were at Costco one time in Billings and a guy in a Ferrari pulled up and he searched out the perfect parking spot for his Ferrari away from all the lessor cars. When we came out he was waiting and he yelled at us. Why did we have to park our POS next to his Ferrari. He found our car offensive. To each there own!

Or when we had the American Flag painted on the hood of our old Land Cruiser. Somebody in Boise told me they found the flag offensive. I told them that there were flights leaving the country every hour and maybe they should get on one of them and not come back.

Okay, okay. I give up. Your truck looks great! I wouldn't change a thing. Tell the girls they did a great job. I think I will stick with faded red or orange (depends on how the light hits it) for my truck. :thumb:

i make it a point to park next to expensive cars with my dirty POS's. especially hummers, escalades, 3/4 and 1 ton rigs with 20+ wheels. serves them right for wasting money on objects of so-called class. mostly only respect classic cars since they mainly have the time and care invested worth the respect. just my opinion....every one has one.

and damn the whole flag thing....go to iraq if you dont like pride in the land of the free!!!!!!!!
