I was taught when running the backhoe to always put down the stabs.

You'll wear out the wheel bearings from rocking.

Also, sitting on rubber is too bouncy

I think a set of hydraulic out riggers at the back will be the answer. the truck comes with a 45,000lbs recovery winch and 2 pieces of pipe that you hook to the back hitch at and angle which is to hold the truck from sliding back. these pipes remind me of tent poles and I don't think they will work very well in the real world of today. the hydraulic outriggers can be used as anchors too. thought will be required.

You will be able to figure something out. Just need to think outside the box, and a working idea will come.

Good to see you back here Joey. I have been following your adventures on the book of faces, but your explanations are better here!!

That'll be a good tool for your adventures. Lots of possibilities.

Gerry was right about not healing as quickly once your hair turns grey, haha. Be careful about falling off of things too, I've noticed I don't bounce as well as I used to.

Used to be able to land on my ass after a 3 or 4 foot unexpected drop and hop right back up, now I just set there and moan a while first, lol.

Yep, my recent bounce had me moaning for week, seeing the chiro today as well.
Just fed my daughter some Alaska salmon last night and we had fun telling her again about you and our adventure at the fish wheel.
Thank you again.

3 weeks ago we towed the water truck and today it tossed a code so we towed it again. then I had to use the Green Toy to lift up a bit so I could get the safety chain unhooked. the outriggers for the Green Toy are on a pallet ready to be serviced before being installed back on the Green Toy. oh the fun we have at the end of the world.
