I bonzai'd through some drifts in one of our concrete trucks yesterday. I don't have any faith in the the Scorpions on our work trucks. Well, faith to sink like a rock, but not for anything else. Maybe I'll sneak out in the mini rollogon this weekend.

Storm's coming :D

Just got back from 2 nights camping on Fordyce through a hefty storm and single digit temps, it was badass and the snow was perfect. Should get some pics together soon

zukidude1.3 11-12-2012 08:59 PM

Got done elk hunting last night at about 4200 feet on Mount Hood and there was like 3 inches... and now it is raining up there. :shaking: Fucking hate waiting for the snow to come and stay. :mad3:

Sweet! You all fit in that tent!?! Thats some cozy camping!!!

jblack6527 11-15-2012 02:28 AM

Some badass pics and vids in here! Some of them make me think just how fawked we would be where I live if we got snow like some of you guys. We get 10 inches here and it may as well be 4 feet. Power out everywhere, nobody moves, it's ridiculous.

zukidude1.3 11-30-2012 07:36 AM

I am gonna rename this thread rain the way things are going. I put tires on my rig, got a better air compressor, fix all the clapped out shit from last year and now it's just raining. We went up to Defiance last sunday. I had to drive slow. my wife is 8 months pregnant and she went with. Next video will be balls out.

Edit: I broke an axle on those rocks on the way back down. I made it... but I have no proof because the damn camera shut off right when I got to them.

Well we got dumped on this week so we are gathering up a run for saturday. My entire front end is out and on the shop floor and I am gonna slam it back together friday night and hope it all works. Got the locker fixed I think, and two good axles in so it should be dialed. I got extra batteries for the go pro so I am hoping to catch some good footage. I will post up.

Cool keep us SoCalrs updated. We could only dream of snow wheeling like that, unless of course we make a trip up.

Not much snow up here yet, but still got out for a little bit of snow wheeling and fun.

Here's the videos from our Wahtum Lake Trip.

My first daughter was born a few weeks ago and will be putting the damper on my snow wheeling for this year.

I just watched both those videos all the way through, that's some great snow wheelin man! That little zuki does some serious work. One of the single most significant times I hate how heavy my jeep is...the bronco 2 in our group can feather the throttle just right and pop up on top of the crust at times. I'm jealous!

Thanks man. I have been teetering on building a 4 runner but haven't pulled the trigger because I'm pretty sure that even on 40's it may not be light enough to run against my Samurai. I really want a 4 door though for my growing family. Part of me wants to build a Sidekick with the Toyota axles I have but at the same I want some big power. I have a 3.4 swapped four runner with a supercharger just waiting to go on and I think 300+ horsepower would add to my giggle factor when snow wheeling.
