I went to the woods.

We took the wife's GMC canyon over an unnamed pass thats about 50 miles of single lane and dirt road today.

At the top we got into the snow. The truck was going great until the front driveshaft PUKED its guts. Why the fuck GM decided to put cherokee parts on this driveline I will never understand.

So we hooked it up to pull it about 40 feet to dry ground to asses the situ.

Hook fell off when pulled, and caught the tranny line on its way out and RIPPED the line right out of the radiator.

My wife was already upset that I broke her PUSSY ASS truck in 8 inches of snow and now its shooting/bleeding tranny fluid 8 feet straight out front like it just got it its neck sliced in a prison brawl.

She looked at me like I murdered it!!! Ya know, 30 miles up the hills from a one tavern town in the middle of nowhere!
Your vivd descriptions are truly a hidden treasure of this forum.

Cleaning out the garage and getting rid of a number of shotgun stocks I bought think I was getting in the business years ago.

Time for Mother’s Day. Looks like this strawberry home made ice cream is going to be a hit.

Yeah, I think I'm going to merge this site with my other off roading site. However it's mostly the east coast.
