My 4 year old approves!... Impressive to see a 4 year old turn 40" tires with ease while standing still in my driveway. Dax was stoked to see the skid marks they left on the driveway. He did say he'd want a blue one when he grows up, but Daddy quickly made it clear that if Uncle Kevin wanted to give away his 40... desert sand would be just fine! :bowdown:

Kevin has built one of the baddest 40's out there! :thumb:

Sure....it's usually empty! Gotta get back up and open more of Jenny Creek! Don't wear you dress clothes....aundant snow/pine needles/sand/trail debris tends to fall from high in the sky! :D

about 5 years ago, right after I moved to Louisville and still lived in the dutch creek neighborhood, I took a project to remove a gigantic cottonwood tree for a young couple. instead of hitting them up for thousands of bucks like a commercial outfit, I did it for free firewood, beer and good karma.

I'd never been over to that part of town yet, but in doing so i spotted wild rice for the first time and thought it was so rad that i drove my wife past it later that week. we both got the biggest laugh out of the "if you can read this please help flip me over" sticker and decided after seeing it that adding some sort of 4x4 to our personal toybox would be a good idea.

when we started house shopping and found this one, we figured any family with a 40 on 40's in the driveway would make pretty darn good neighbors and i'd say we were right on that!

it makes me smile every time i see it, especially when its all dirty and sitting on the trailer after some good fun!

^^Yeah....I remember when we took our 100's there. I pretty much did the same line, Nakman was a little more to the left, but the IFS didn't flex quite that much so it was more dramatic. :rolleyes:

Video is awesome! :eek:

Who has the video of UB jumping the giant drift at the end of Jenny Creek a year or two ago. That was the coolest WR high speed assault I have seen.
