Anything new goin on

Just thought I would check in and see whats up and whats new in the Arkansas chapter. Hope everyone is doing ok. I have some pictures to share for anyone interested. It was a bad combination of ice and a sloppy dirt road. Check out the carnage.

Ouch! No one hurt I hope.

Nothing new really. Have an antifreeze leak (loss) somewhere on the explorer that I have to find/fix when the ice goes away. The 56 is on hold until then as well. I have parts, but....hate cold.

Oh...bummer. Drop it off in a ditch?

Where was that picture taken? I saw a lot of those triangle shaped houses in Joplin last time I was through there.

Yeah...Ice is funny that way. I just got off the phone with jimkidd, and he's been on the same stretch of I-40 for the last 7 hours or so. Trailer brakes froze up and he finally got a semi to bump him in the back to get it moving.

He's doing a whopping 7 miles an hour now.....should be home right around daybreak. Hit the state line at Memphis at 11 this morning and has traveled about 60 miles since then....

Talk about the road trip from hell....

The snow melted off finally! I was able to get the halogen sealed beams in the 56 this evening. I haven't tried them out yet though.

Well I tore the cat and the rest of the original exhaust off and put a 4 inch straight pipe on . Man does that old turbo sing now ! I am still getting contact on the firewall with the down pipe and I worked it over pretty good this time I think I'm going to get new body to frame bushings. When I went over to Jim's he pointed out that my cab was sitting lower than my bed I never noticed that before so thats next.

Saweeeeeet!! Isn't that the coolest sound. I love a straight piped PSD. Got any pipe left over? I've been thinking about straightpiping the duals. I miss the growl.
