Daylight Savings Run Spring 06
Pond Run

October 17th, 2005
 
The pond on the family farm is dried down to mud- the perfect excuse to test my new Aussie Locker!
 

Our pond, shown here after the run, is about 50ft in diameter.  The mud is deep enough that full grown cows sink chest deep.

My friend Mark came along with his 79 fj40.  He's got a Spring Over Axle lift, 6.2 liter diesel, sm420 transmission, Aussie Lockers front and rear, power steering, and Warn 8000lb winch, but currently runs 33x12.50 Liberator All Terrains (soon to change).

The truck is sitting on its frame rails at this point.
