Default Off Road up a mountain!

Yesterday I got to do a little off-roading. My friend and I drove to the top of a mountain privately owned by his family. Last time we went it got so muddy at one point it was impassable, this time it was 22 degrees and the ground was frozen solid. So needless to say, it was an easy, but still exciting drive. The view at the top was awesome! And I have never been more happy to have heated seats!

Here is a video, its pretty long but when the rover passes it sounds awesome. I havn't really heard the benefits of not having a resonator until yesterday.

There was one point where I had an issue, but once I engage CDL it wont be an issue, ive got another trip coming up and I'll be sure to have it engaged then!

No I dont mean the turn signal lights themselves (blinkers), I mean the ones above those, the top aft corners of the turn signal lamp unitshave side marker bulbs in as well that should be on all the time your lights are on.

You can "just" see them in this piccy...

Looks like that was a good day, I might mention though that in pic #2 you guys are parked where my house is suppose to be - in the video (at about 2:34 into it) it's like Mom always said never trust a vine you don't know

It's kind of funny, I drive a Disco and my best friend drives a Grand Cherokee. Now if he only had his only private mountain. That really looks like it was a good day on the trail. Any day that you come home with the same truck you left with is a good day, being able to reuse the truck makes it a great day.
