Nice job on the hat! We didn’t get snow but over 2” of rain yesterday. I didn’t even try to move “ole Blue”. She currently doesn’t have the front axles or driveshaft but that’s next on the maintance list.View attachment 821021View attachment 821022
Well, it snowed last here last night. So naturally I got out my snow blower and got right to work. Then came the time to move Brutus. He started right up.
I engaged the front hubs and put him in gear. He wouldn't go anywhere on the by now packed snow. So, I put him in low range. Still spinning tires. Now I get out of the truck and put sand in front of the tires. He still wouldn't get going. I'm thinking to myself, "Well this is embarrassing, I own the most famous military vehicle in the world (next to the Jeep and the chariot) and my SUPER MANLY vehicle won't go in snow. " I've been driving Brutus for seven years now and have countless times in snow. Then it finally dawned on me...."Dipstick you turkey, you forgot to engage the front axle!" And of course Brutus got going immediately if not sooner. I think my propeller beanie properly illustrates the way I felt when I realized I hadn't engaged the front axle.
