    A BAD START FOR OUR #1st MUDBUGGS

    left our house at 7:00 for mudbuggs . we met up with troyheb at wataburger 7:30 for breakfast. AND OFF WE G, 1.5 hours later in lake charles POW the left side tire blew out, NO PROB we had a spare, so i jack the trailer up and remove 4 lug nuts with no problems, BUT the 5th one did not want to come off the stud started to spin. i was on the phone for 1.5 hours to find a (16) wrecker or (6) a tire shop that could cut the lugnut off NO LUCK. so i had a wise idea to call a welding co. that would come help me out, i found one after i called 3 different places 1 hour later he shows up and in 2 seconds and a $100 later the stud is cut. i put the spare tire on and off we go 11:47, the spare is a little low so we start to drive slow to get to the next gas station to fill the tire up.. and at 11:54 PPPPPPPPPOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW the spare blows the Fup i unhooked the trailer and sent the wife to walmart 15 min back the other way to get TWO NEW tires and NO LUCK so she went to academy and they had them, 15min back to meet me, i changed both tires just to be safe. 1:40 back on the road to mudbugs, arrived finally at the holiday inn

    thanks for stopping to see if we needed help jetskr and fullboogie

    FYI, I had a friend of mine recommend to have the studs tack welded on the rear of the hub to prevent the spinning if it does rust up.
