I did take the truck out into the mountains back in February.
3 nights in the freezing rain and snow.
I slept in the back with the cargo cover on. It was pretty cold lol
I stayed fairly local. The lake I went to was fairly low elevation so I figured I wouldn’t run into too much snow. A few friends went up the night before, I traveled alone in the Deuce and reached gravel at about 9pm. As I gained elevation the freezing rain turned to fairly heavy snow fall. There was about 2 feet when I reached camp. It rained heavily over the course of the weekend so much of the snow mekted
out there alone in the dark with the snow falling I had a real “Just a man and his army truck moment”
I felt confident and had an extra boost of moral when I managed to reach camp via radio 25 kilometres out.
truck did it’s job, my lights did their job, and the radio did it’s share.
Moments like that really make the mods worth it.
Unfortunately I only managed one short video and a single picture.
mine is starting to flake off in quarter size chunks.Down to the original factory paint and in some spots the primer. I’d say there’s at lease 9 layers of paint. Right in the middle there is clearly a layer of white.
