      what happens to water that goes into the exhaust? What happens with really hot headers going right into the water?

      Most water should get pushed out or prevented from coming in by the exhaust pulses. The rest would drain out of the weep holes in your mufflers. The headers would just cool off quickly. Nothing should happen but I'm sure there is always a chance of warpage/cracking.

      This would be epic if the tractor was spinning its back wheels furiously.

      hows that the wheels on the tractor are sofa king clean?

      Stuck in the snow last February, thanks in part to the douche in the plow, who was also stuck.

      yes, it was something to do with either the access or the rock itself being on private property.

      I guess I'm just amazed at the forces involved here.

      Great pics, by the way.

      Sorry for any confusion. I simply am enjoying the TCL'ers who are mixing it up in the messy stuff.

      Thanks... I was unschooled in that little tidbit. I'm used to seeing them just drop on the pavement when the U joints let go.

      Now I know. There is a reason I don't offroad... obviously, I'd never get back home.

      Went mudding in my friend's H1 in Bulgaria. Had the street-ish tires on it so it got stuck when we didn't have enough momentum to carry us through this mud. Had to get the tractor to pull us out.

      and considering the terribly corrosive effects of volcanic ash (airliners consider this the equivalent of microscopic shredded glass), this won't be a very long lived Rav-4.

      "The Sebring is an extraordinary car. Ugly to behold and hateful to drive, it is not cheap, elegant, comfortable, practical, prestigious, clever, economical, luxurious, well designed, well thought out or, if the rental car I drove in America this year is anything to go by, especially well made either." - Jeremy Clarkson
