Damn, you made quick work of resetting it back up. It's always a question of 'just one more try' or winching. It sure seems like that last try is the one that does it, doesn't it?

Drive around in FWD as much as you can to try and break it in this week

Also, DAMMIT you JUST got those doors!

How do you like the Pitbull Rockers overall? Always seems to be a love/hate relationship.
I've been pretty happy with them, they did awesome in the snow. Didn't give me any trouble the day we took them out and it was unbelievably dry. Following day after a bunch of rain they still performed well when things were greasy. They are load range C bias, so they're super soft and work well under the weight of the truck. The double beadlocks help keep things together at low pressure. I'm setting them up pretty well for success. I'm pleased so far. Going to be putting ~1000 miles on them tomorrow through Sunday. We'll see how they wear!

I usually do a good job of making the last attempt the final attempt of the day

There's tube back there hiding behind the fender to protect the cab firewall and the door if something ends up there, it did it's job and caught the tree, probably also provided the traction to bind the tire up solid. Door completely unscathed though!

Made the dirty dozen! So That's cool!

And back to truck updates!

Just got home from a 5 day 1,160 mile trip up to the North Maine Woods.



We traversed the North Maine Woods from the South Western most corner, up through the North Eastern most corner. From checkpoint to checkpoint it was 370 miles of completely unsupported travel, I had an awesome time!









I'll dive into a better update on the trip once I get all the pictures and videos sorted out.

Trip was awesome, I've found that bourbon packs better than beer for long haul trips
