Well with snow that actually amounted to something. I must say that the JK handles really well in the snow. Even on the untouched roads. OH and when that dumb a$$ plow driver made a U turn in front of me. I did slide a little. But you know the little bit of knowledge I have picked up on the trails helps knowing how the jeep is going to act in slippery conditions

Well some of us fools are stuck at work........... Evil or Very Mad


I came in at 6:30 and I was quite surprised at the quality of the roads.. My neighborhood was like powder and close to 8 inches..

I got to 40 and it was quite slick.. Not having much patience for people out with cars that shouldnt be out I passed quite a few down the road. Got to the hill on 40 before Daves cove rd which is quite steep and long and I gave the 6 cars in front of me some room to make it up the hill before I got there..

Well dumb aholes!!!!!!! If you slow down to 10mph of course you are gonna get stuck.. All six stopped on the hill..

Not me........I thought I was in a maze..... when i crested the hill not a single head light was behind me.....

Time to start really thinking about what tires to put on the Duramax..... Probably stick with old faithful BFG's...........

this snow is great cheers been out twice now when in 4WD it's to easy been running around in 2WD much more fun. Did get it completly sideways in 4WD and still getting it. Snow blower is paying off after a 3year wait for a good snow to use it.

Beautiful day! My street barely touched. Headed to Meade but got turned around, hit bass pro since my boots split, then to grocery store for flour (cant have choc chip cookies without flour) then hit liquer store for some absinthe. Too many morons in thier sedans in a ditch. Dogs having a blast with snow over top. No problems backing into an unplowed spot. No excuses for missing work on monday tho. Now tomorrows shoveling will be a bitch but if we had more open spots... well they should have plowed arundel mills better - couldnt see the curbs! Really wish I could go snowing with Paul - I know how he likes this stuff!

It is killing me right now. My wife is stuck at work. I want so bad to take JR out. But being as Jr is my wife's first child she wants to see he in the snow for the first time. The taking him out for a road trip she is more scared of the other assholes out there then my driving so. Now I am snowed in. To add to my earlier post my father in law sat here long enough for me to run the wife to work then he was off to plow some of the lot at work. So now I am stuck here. DAMN

Saturday was a successful maiden voyage for the lockers in the snow, and after making it to work today with the only problem being the couple other cars sliding around the side streets, the scoreboards are looking good:

Jeep 2, Snow 0 cheers

I do need a trailer for the Jeep. On my way up to Baltimore either the transfer case or trans went out. POS luckily only stuck on the side of the road for 35 min. Now waiting for dad to pick us up to get the Chevy.

That thing needs to go back to the dealer and tell them to shove it.....


I can see things going out when they get abused but that is ridiculous..................



The Crush impressed me even more.. The SX's are awesome in the snow.. I ran around last night in 2wd..... Today I parked it in a six foot pile of snow in the medium strip of the road while I used the snow blower on the driveway. Couple of jeeps stopped to check it out.... Possible new members.


I did break the door handle.. Something let loose inside and wont release the lock.. I seem to recall a few writeups on this issue but I have to find them.. Im sure the master tech of Fallston Fab will know the fix or figure it out..


Never made it up to Fallston Fab last night to play with the boys.. Last I heard Tom, Chris, Tommy and Ron were out playing with the jeeps and 4 wheelers. We had a bunch of people over and the Duramax got to play all night too picking up people and food...I need to put some shoes on the Duramax.. I was alittle worried about it before I left work but I didnt have any issues at all..

What a blast on Sat.! Picked my Jeep up on Friday from Bosley just in time for the snow. My rear locker got shredded at the last comp so I put a spool in it (Thanks to Matt for the vote). Ran some errands during the day in the Jeep then headed over to Tom's for some 4wheelin! Jumped on our ATV's and headed up to Fallston High School to tear around in the fields. Then headed down Mtn. Road to a buddy's house and he joined us with his ATV. Spun on down to 7-11 for some beer then back to our buddy's for some good ol' BS'in....oh yeah..we cooked up some pepperoni over top the propane stove...(now that's livin......the red neck way! Headed back home later that night by tearing up the back roads all the way.......we felt like we were 16 again....what a day....don't know the next time we will get to have a day like that.......come on more snow cheers santa

Allright now I am definitely tagging the jeep and then putting a rack on the back to carry my new 4 wheeler (have to buy it first) on to get to Fallston Fab..


Not that I didnt have a great time with our friends.. but its just not the same as OLD SCHOOL OFFROADING fun...
