Monster Truckin' in the High Desert

Had to knock off work early to make up for some overtime I worked earlier in the week, so what better time to go do some wheeling. As I came up over a ridge I found this burned out husk and decided to see what the awesome stock articulation would get me. Plus, I'd never tried to run over another vehicle before. <grin>

I want to go back in the near future with a trusty spotter so I can really montser truck it by driving over it from one end to the other.

Nice Trucks, I just swapped out a 5.9 diesel into my 05 powerwagon and added twin turbos, big intercooler and a lot of engine work. Truck is 90% done, jsut waiting on DT Pro Fab to make the rear long arm suspension for me and i will finish with air bags the whole way around the truck. Invested well over 30K to convert to diesel but the truck will very powerfull and weigh in at over 11,000lbs. Have 16.5 winch in front and the 12,000 in the rear. Should see it in Diesel Power magazine when its done. Take care

This is getting a bit more sejcubtive, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
