My tranny should be done while Matt is up north playing Yankee. We'll have to get together and post off road pics to get him homesick.

(2) 3.5x15
(2) 2x15
(1) 10x29
(1) 6.5x29
all 1/4" thick

but since you dont have the body lift, and your radiator doesn't hang down, you could probably make the 3.5 a 3 or so...

Dude new rear bumper! I'd rather be raped by mexican apple farmers than have that thing on the back of my truck!

Did you get rearended? Rear square steel bumpers aren't hard to make, other members have made them.

Well I would just have to get out my handy dandy tranquilizer gun and dart you real quick and steal your lift and tires and gears and skid plate and you have to much stuff to steal. I might need to dart you twice, then I will take your hellas since my front one is broken(but still working I don't know how since it fills up with water)

Then I would have the baddest, even though I already have that trophy hoohahaha get some
