Nothing broke and was a great trip. A friend of our went with us with his new Dodge ram so I took my tow chain just incase. We logged about 50 miles of trails. It was great day and I have a ton of pics and a few vids that I will post after work.
It took me about 2- 2 1/2 hours to clean it but there is no visible mud anywhere on it now. I even got on the ground to get it all off the suspension and brakes. I got dirtier cleaning it then being out in the mud. Now I have to buff out the brush scratches on the sides but it's not too bad.

+1

when that breaks, you will be lucky if nobody is hurt. when it snaps it will sling, shoot your back window out and probably smack anybody close.

a good way to wash the under carrige......run the sprinkler that goes back and forth, stick it under your truck for about an hour, then move it to another side...will wash the underneath easier

I am thinking that they are extenda flares from Bushwacker, not sure.
I also have a strap but some of the areas are pretty bad so I took the chain as a last resort.
