Any rednecks here ?
« on: November 01, 2013, 09:16:24 AM »
Okay I might be a Hillbilly I'm not too sure. I am sure that we know how to have fun on the weekend. This was a few weeks ago. We are doing it again tomorrow with a ton more rain the last couple days. It should be interesting. I have pics of A friend's Cherokee that was buried in my woods. We had to use a highlift to get it high enough to put supports under the tires. Still needed a tractor to get it out.

I hope you can enjoy the video. He's in 2 wheel drive just showing off...

Love mud boggin'. Don't love digging out. Hahahaha!

P.S. You might want to edit the title of this thread. You either left out a "d", or I need new glasses. ;)

Not mud bogging but I have been know to spend too much time at the local short tracks.  I'm not a real redneck as I hide my Serra Nevada Pale Ale under a budwiser cozy so no one is the wiser.   Son in law has been trying to get me to get a car ready to race for next season.  Problem is I don't have anything that can tow a car to the racetrack anymore.  He and my daughter both race and last big race of the season I think his family had 22 cars at the track.

Bumper mounted winches are a boy's best friend.  :P That's quite a pickle your friend got in.
Before I had a winch, my rule-of-thumb was to go in 2x drive until I got stuck, then get out with 4x drive. Hahaha! If you get stuck in 4x drive, you're pretty well stuck.  ;)

Looks like the typical drive to town from the farm before the township graveled all the RFD routes. :-\.   Sometimes the ruts would get 'split' so many times and the ruts so deep that Dad had to abandon the '46 Willy's Jeep and hook up a flair box David Bradley wagon behind the chained-up 'M' Farmall to get my brother & me to school in the Spring when the frost went out of the ground!  I don't remember it being all that much fun, though. ???

Dang.. I'm a redneck and didn't know it.   That pretty much looks like my driveway in the spring.  LOL    I don't bother to wash the car until late June. 

We have a steep hill here in the woods and one winter I was pulling the four wheeler home on the trailer.   Got just about to the top and lost grip.  I started to slide backwards.  And since there was a trailer back there we kinked.. bad.   Hubs was bent outta shape about it.   I just got on the four wheeler, drove it off the trailer and went to the top of the hill with it. I parked it so the front was tight against a tree facing the van.   I hooked the van up with the winch and pulled the car / trailer up the hill.   Dang proud of myself I was!!    Stuck my tongue out at hubs and wouldn't talk to him the rest of the day.  humph.

Personally I think a dirty muddy truck is a Happy Dirty Muddy Truck. :)  And I'm pretty sure the driver is grinning too....


Edit:  Oh ya , Wolfy.. the spring frost heaves.  I forgot about those.  I've seen cars sunk down to the point of doors not being able to open with those puddin' holes.   Our road isn't toooo bad...  might loose a muffler or hubcap, but thats about it.

Nice Truck!  Even I can appreciate the usefulness of that baby.....   

Does it come with one of those awesome little tractors like Hushnel got?  :)    If so.. I'm asking Santa for one....

That is pretty hard on that aluminum ramp.  But I guess you gotta do what you gotta do.

That is a nice Chevy in the last truck photo.

Yeah Creek. Very clean. You don't see them much up here. I have a GMC I plow with. I got it cheap with a broken frame and no title. '83  350 4 bolt. headers and an Edelbrock carb. Here is the wrecked body but the driveline is awesome.

Harbor freight has a 12,000 lbs winch on sale right now for $299. If I had the cash....

Mud Boggin is big up here, we don't have the big rock crawling trails PA has. This is an even that was going on the same day. We were bored and came back to my place. Their place was a drag strip with mud on the surface. These trucks were designed for real deep stuff...

Yeah buddy. That looks like hummer lake or the end of it. I used to belong to Jeepsrus. We helped build a lot of the trails there. Rattlesnake was my favorite. For folks that don't know this was the best off-road park on the east coast.

Kyle knosp ran the place and was kicked out for breach of contract that was B.S. and an excuse to turn the place into an industrial park. Hummbolt if you search it.

Kyle now owns The Badlands In Attica IN. The second best off-raod park LOL.

Man you brought back a ton of memories. I have a million pictures of that place. I remember my last ride there was the 911 Benefit for the families who lost loved ones in the towers.

I had a friend follow me through that and wasn't as lifted. the water came into the intake right behind the left headlight. it hydrolocked the inline six and it put a rod through the block.

I parked my jeep on the side of the road and loaded his on my trailer. We took it to a friends house who was doing the engine swap.i got back to my jeep at midnight, luckily still there in one piece loaded it up and got home around 4am.


Good friends, good people, and good times. That's what makes life worth living. You can keep your fancy cars and big houses.

My favorite pic from Paragon.

While I did not know Kyle, my friends Dean and Lynne were friends of his and his wife...I've got a few more pics scattered thru-out cyberspace of Paragon if I come across them. Good to hear he was able to open up another park.

Redneck?  Yeah, I are one.   8)

'necks and hillbillys are not always one and the same though.  We have thousands of rednecks here in Florida, dang few hills. 
I have been known to have driven my old 4Runner into some bad mud, but never just to give it a go.  I am usually trying to get from point A to point B.  Sometimes sand or mud is in the path.

Very cool. All that in two wheel drive. I cringed a little when the guy put his hand out to keep it from tipping into the bank when they were in that ditch.

I remember a model a commercial where they drove up and down stairs and all over. Jeep made some nice ones too back in the day.

Thanks Zammer.

Thanks for the memory, zammer!   Before Dad bought the Willys, we relied on a Model A Ford to navigate the muddy roads in the Spring.  The thing was unstoppable.....the high clearance and narrow tires negated the need for 4WD.   As evidenced by your video, it was a machine built & well-suited for the road conditions of the times. :)

We spent over $1500 to get our '03 cavalier inspected. It was a small leak in the evap system. Had the dealership fog the system to find the leak and it took replacing alomst every component on the car. That I could have done without the fogging.

I told my wife I was going to buy an Old Model A and strip it. Herculiner everything, then put it back together and drive it for the rest of my life...


But being a true redneck, It would probably turn out something like this....

I'd have to add a gun rack, a roof top carrier tent, and old conveyor belts for front fenders. You know those fenders are gonna catch a tree or two.

We Hosted our first Mod Bog event. We raised over $200 for a friends daughter to help her get to the world scout jamboree in Japan in 2015. We asked for a $5 per person and had Chili and Baked Ziti for free. I think they got their moneys worth.

I get too much of it too.  I got so stuck trying to get a mineral barrel across the creek a few years ago I needed my neighbor to bring his truck over and with two trucks and a 100' of steel cable we pulled out a Land Cruiser I had that was buried up to the top of the wheel wells.  He went around all summer telling folks I drove where people liked to fish.   :-[

A good friend of mine and I went to the regional market. We found 3 US GI Jerry cans for$20. Two were in good shape we each kept one. The third was in very rough shape.

A true friend, he takes it to work and sandblasts it, cuts the rust out, and welds it back together. He did this for a fuel tank on my 69 CJ-5 project.

I think he went above and beyond anything I could have expected. This guy is an artist and doesn't realize his talent. The more I look at it the more it screams "Rockabilly", "Rat Fink", and "Rat Rod". A 1960's feel for a true put together with parts on hand Rat Rod Jeep.

Here is an update. I have had this full tube chassis for almost 10 years. I am now getting it finished for this year.
 The Entire driveline is out of my 87 Cherokee.

The front dana 30 has welded spiders and 2002 Grand Cherokee knuckles/hubs/disks/double piston calipers/cross over steering.

The rear is a Ford 8.8 out of an explorer. factory limited slip. This will be 4 link rear. I have the ends and the nitro shocks. I need the DOM tubing. Ordered just waiting for it to arrive.

I designed the transfer case mount on a CAD program and A friend cut it with his CNC machine. Turned out well. It is top mount because I have a giant skid pan that covers the entire under side.

The Cherokee shell weighed 1800 lbs. the naked tube chassis weighs 400 lbs. It's going to be 1400 lbs lighter!!!












The KEG is the fuel tank. I ave two. one will be for air from the on board compressor. The gas tank will be labeled "The main event" and the air tank will be labeled "The after party", Since we use it to air the tires back up. I run 8-12 psi off-road. 24 on the street on the Cherokee anyway. I chalked them for even tread wear.

The only engine compartment picture I have...

In recent years, the "Redneck" term has been expanded to include an even broader range of positive attributes and I will gladly confess to a few.  "Mudding" brings back some bad memories, though.  I recall needing help to get a 2WD truck through muddy roads during hunting season, pulling others out of bog holes with my PTO winch and giving up on a trip because I - probably - didn't have enough vehicle to get through a bog hole created by others.  That's not to say that I didn't enjoy a good challenge decades ago; I still recall proving that sagebrush does make a good winch anchor and I had forgotten the Model A's reputation for being virtually unstoppable.  Back to the more positive, "Redneck" has also been re-defined to being more patriotic, hard-working and self-reliant than many others, so I - hopefully - deserve that term.

Do you really know the true meaning of the term "Redneck" ?  Do some research on the Blair Mountain War around Matewan WV in the 1920's to find out more.

They wore red bandanas and called themselves 'Rednecks'!

I always thought that it came from folks working out in the fields and getting 'Rednecks' from sunburn :shrug:

Presbyterians? :shrug: :rofl:

In Scotland in the 1640s, the Covenanters rejected rule by bishops, often signing manifestos using their own blood. Some wore red cloth around their neck to signify their position, and were called rednecks by the Scottish ruling class to denote that they were the rebels in what came to be known as The Bishop's War that preceded the rise of Cromwell. Eventually, the term began to mean simply "Presbyterian", especially in communities along the Scottish border. Because of the large number of Scottish immigrants in the pre-revolutionary American South, some historians have suggested that this may be the origin of the term in the United States.
Dictionaries document the earliest American citation of the term's use for Presbyterians in 1830, as "a name bestowed upon the Presbyterians of Fayetteville, North Carolina.
