Yeah, the center console dumped everything in my lap when she fell into this hole. I added another pic...had to touch it up a bit, its been lightened up to show the terrain Im about to drop into.

Re: 4X4 Action Pix

Good day for wheeling by the looks.
Great pics, like the yellow, it really stands out.

Went out last week and found/played on a wicked muddy hill climb but we had no camera with us.

Re: 4X4 Action Pix

Hit the off-road park 2 weeks in a row Here's a few shots from 11-6-06. I know some might look like poser shots but my 6 year old isnt too handy with the camera so occasionally I had to stop and get out to get these shots.

Got to go wheelin w/ Johnny @ the ORV park. Heck-of-a-nice guy. I got there late, but had fun wheelin. Forgot to flip my air cleaner lid & sucked in a bit of water, but fixed it & drove it home. Need to change the fluids of course & get out & do it some more! Thanks, John for getting me out there. Hope to do again soon.

Previous owner was a Bondo loving bodyman. Havent you ever seen an "EVROLET"? I have a large stick-on metal chevrolet tailgate emblem off a newer truck that is supposed to cover the old logo. Does anyone know how to get the thick sticky backing off of it without destroying it?

Re: 4X4 Action Pix

These are a couple of shots I took over the summer at Raglan, Ontario. We were talking with these guys afterwards and they told us they were "company cars".

Re: 4X4 Action Pix

he should have kept going till it said "rolet"

on the tailgate band-- the sticky crap comes off best with a razor blade or sometimes Acrysol will loosen up the stickyness and you can peel it off. i had to get it all off mine when this happened:

Re: 4X4 Action Pix

How does that thing steer offroad without crossover steering? The few times I wheeled my 72 it was a real pain. Im springing for crossover before I see dirt again.

Re: 4X4 Action Pix

No crossover steering makes for some challenging situations, it is a constant struggle. I've been talking w/another member: "Critter" on the 69-72 Blazers/Jimmys forum section under the thread "6 Inch Lift" about what probs I have dealt with. My Dana 44 has the wrong knuckles for crossover so I'm gonna beat on it all winter to see if it holds up. Then I'll decide if I want to keep the Dana 44 and swap knuckles or try to find a Dana 60 before I do the crossover. Thanks for asking. ~John
