The only mud I can find around here has a great big fence around it. I'm also fairly sure that I would never, ever make it out. It is more of a pond about 18" deep (I cimbed over the fence) About 30' long. I took my waders the next time and sank up to my hips by the time I was five feet out. I couldn't go much further, cause I was by myself and I was afraid I'd get into a situation and need help getting out. I figure if I sank to my hips, a truck is gonna cut some mean ruts... with its bumper.
I did some checking, thinking that if it dries up a little, it could be a lot of fun, and the land belongs to PNM. So much for that.

By the way, nice rig. Do you still have it?

I presume you asking about BIG RED?

Unfortunately.. NO... I had to sell her... Was at a point where I really needed some cash and needed to stop spending sooo much on that rig. I had nearly $18K invested in it. That's $8K for the rig + haul it back from Portland OR. Then, $10K in mechanics to make it run right. Sold it for $8K.

At the same time I had that rig, I also had a white 96 FSB on 4" lift and 33" tars. 4.56 gears and a detroit in the rear. Was a nice rig but, didn't cut it as a daily driver. So, I wanted to sell this Bronco and keep BIG RED. But, BIG RED sold much quicker then the 96 did.

I'm newly divorced in Mar 08. I'm currently an apartment dweller. Once I get another casa of my own.. I will build another EB.

Hey Eddie. Nice seeing you on here. I was just over your way by Bldg 836 this AM. Can't believe you take that beast in mud. My tow rig stays on ashpalt as much as it can. How was the concert?

I'm not gonna avoid mud if it's in my way. Usually don't go out lookin for it. But, I had to see what the ol' girl could do. Needless to say, I'm not disappointed... LOL!!!
