 Hey everyone!!! just seeing if anyone got there jeep out today in the snow and had some fun?  Today we took the whole family and some friends out in a few jeeps and hooked some sleds behind old Ironsides  ( m38a1 ). Here is a video of us getting half way up the hill then getting the m151 stuck LOL we had to put chains on the it to get the rest of the way up. I had already put chains on Ironsides before we left so it didn't have any trouble at all. Anyway I will put up a few more videos once I get them uploaded!!!

Hope everyone had a good Christmas, post some pics if you did something with your jeep today!!

Well dose spending time working on it count?  I re-fabed my tranny cross member and tacked my new body mounts on the frame.

WOW, that looks like great fun. No snow here in southern Wisconsin. This is the 3rd time my nephew has been up from Texas for Christmas with hopes of playing in the snow only to see trees without leaves and brown grass. Unhappy

to many jeeps, parts, and accessories to list here, but apparently enough to keep me in trouble with my wife.

I had mine out today, using it to haul branches I was pruning off my fruit trees. 45 degrees today. I'm happy for low utility bills so far,anyway. I was joking with my wife last night that the neighbors must think it's not going to snow this year, and that's the reason no one brought me any Christmas cookies this year  (I plow the street in my little neighborhood-no one else has a tractor that can do it)

Good fun Joshua!  I had the jeep out on Christmas eve...but no snow here! (lots of good looks though!)   Not to snow on your parade of fun, but shouldn't those kids on the sleds be wearing bike helmets, elbow and knee pads, goggles and all the other safety crap!?  Good to see regular fun!  You got the right idea!

No snow here but after a hectic week with a funeral, houseful of relatives, & Christmas I took "Gumby" out for a little solitude and reflection in the mountains.
