With respect Dean it can be a little difficult to decipher your posts, so if I have misunderstood I apologise.

No one has had a pop at you. So what if you need a spanner day to sort your car ? Gentle ribbing when someone gets stuck is par for the course. I got the sh1te ripped out of me for ages about getting stuck at the lost lake ( and rightly so) , it's banter fella. We all have broad shoulders, get on with it :wink:

hey i was the first one to say get the cammera out.

the fact that before i got in the house there was a whole page on what was or would be wrong with it, rather than any one simply asking hows the truck it was all servers you right for dunking it. the fat i put there is nothing wrong with the truck seems to put people off and og your eml is on it is a be series find me one that isnt at some point.

this is not the first time i have dunked it and it wont be the last i didnt by a fronty to go the shops i bought it to go off road be it sand snow or sludge.

the amount of fun i had can be measured by the amount of time it takes me to clean it

this is why i had it mapped for more torque becasue ask any of the guys will tell you the big hill is a laugh and next time i promised to stay out of the puddle but then i am quite sure if i had not done it rob was eyeing it up for a go
right the truck is clean so i am off to shower the rest of sludge off :dance: :dance: :dance: me

Again, I'm struggling to make sense of your post, but if I read you correctly Rob was there ?

I'm sorry , but if Rob was there I don't believe for one second he didn't take the pee more than we have (unless he was having an off day ) :wink:

Ask me, Simod, Stevd and countless others about getting stuck or doing something daft. Getting ribbed about it for 6 months afterwards is all part of it I'm afraid. The fact you had fun doing it is brilliant, just don't expect sympathy when you come back on the forum :twisted:

As mods we have various tools that we can use to manage the forums, one of which is the ability to be able to change the poster of a post...
I started a review thread ready for when you guys got back, and changed the poster to Rob as he organised the meet and thats only fair.
Mods/admin often start threads for reviews for members to make it easy for when they return and so that all the posts get into the right thread, hence why I also posted in the organisation thread with a link to this thread, and then locked that thread.
I also sent Rob a pm so he knew that I had started a review thread for him...
So I cant really see what the problem is Dean, this is just one of the many things we do to help members and keep the forums tidy and concise. :?

To be fair I wasnt expecting rob to post till this evening as last night after the meet he had a 300+ mile round trip to take his lad home. Robs truck seemed in good health after yesterdays anticts and i have no reason to believe why he shouldn't have made the trip. Unfortunately I don't have any contact numbers for anyone on the site so I can't find out.

glad your alright fella got back earlier than thought today so going to have a crack at that box later.

when you come over to pick up might find some extra bits wacked on it for you

shame i got stuck but next time your this way si wants to come and have another go now he knows he can potter around and stay safe even on road tires but will get a sign put up saying no frontys in the pond.

cant wait for the vids me stood there with on sock on.

gave it a mild wash last night as lights where a bit dirty cant think why and then took the rest of the bash plates off and gave the under side ago and got 95% of the sludge off some keeps dripping out of the holes in the chassis but cant do muh about that at present.

next time 10am start i think and bring the barbque
