That picture above of me and you...well if you remember further up the trail along that rock wall, well I hit it about 5 times with the quarter panel....eek its sooo bent i dont know how I am going to get a lens cover back on... :D The other side looks about the same up at the rear door...If you check out the other link i sent ya to the trail ride to Alpha you can see the one dude sitting on his bumper going up knuckle buster....it was a sick trip....I ended up denting just about everything on my truck.

The Velveeta thanks you for the kind words and hopes to see you on the trail...I will be at GSMTR 06....Wes you better be there...

No worries dude...the 80 wont be on the road for a lonnnnggg time.
Velveeta is way cooler anyway.....it just needs bigger tires.

oh and a toy box, FI, longs, and more dents... :beer:

I am going to put in a hand throttle this weekend....it will be much sweeter on the trail and a good poor mans cruise control for the 12 hour trip up to tellico.

Al, I got some cool new body tools I'm dying to try out.
Next trail run I'll bring my Dyna-Mo body pull clamp. Just need someone there with a winch. You'll have a tailamp housing back in, in 30 minutes.
Also have the uni-spot dent puller to get it really straight.
But if you have another day like last Saturday, It would take pull clamps on all corners, and there would be cables and winches all over the place stretching your truck back into shape from every direction :D .

That gadget seems really cool. If I only knew how to use it!

Lowtideride, do you have any pics of your truck before you started modding it? I would like to see the extent of what you did.
