It looks good still and I like how you sprayed the rims. Yep - I lurk in JF but have to spend time there. It is a great place.

They arent sprayed, powder coated Got them on ebay last Christmas. I used to spend a ton of time on JF but havent lately, more interest in picking boarding back up I guess.

2004 Chev Silverado, ext cab, long box z71 off-road 4x4.

Cab on the back, crap loads of room for gear.

Comfortably seats up to 5... 6 alright.

Goes through damn near everything.

Only thing I need to say is 4WD and 4x4s are great for getting through shit... but they don't stop any better... in fact, often worse because they are heavier vehicles. Just cause you have 4x4 doesn't mean go screaming down a snow covered hwy. Drive for the weather. Rant done.

So true. Snow/ice traction tires are what gives you control. The problem is that many (most?) truck and SUV drivers don't swap over from their all-season, all-terrain truck tires when winter comes, probably because suv tires look aggressive (fine for deep snow but doesn't help on ice like a studless snow that has special temperature-sensitive compounds and siping would), and tires of that large of a size cost a small fortune.

Computer-controlled traction control and stability control also help immensely to keep the car pointed in the right direction.

It's not about how many runs you get, it's the quality of the turns you made.

Totally agree, drove through a recent storm where everything was iced over and I still had summer tires on my truck, every bridge I hit, I would instantly go sideways and the computer would kick in and fix it. Its all about angle and tires, I got stuck on a pile of leaves on a incline and a few buddies had to use their man power and push me out. Traction control and low range couldn't get me outta that one. Pretty entertaining watching all the wheels move and stop trying to find grip. I'm too lazy to deflate my tires a bit.
