Me too I had to freeze my spiders and wd-40 them to get them in. Also file a hair off the ends of the axles to get the pin back in. Baby was tight in there!

about the same for me, looked at it, scratched my head, thought about it some, then put it in neutral and pushed it 10ft forward to get it out of the way! lol

Where are you rubbing with only a 31.5 on a 4x4? kinda odd. I was nowhere near rubbing with my edge and 31s (even with the 1" difference)

Reupholstered the center arm rest. Put an inch an a half of memory foam it it, looks a bit obtrusive, but feels like a damn pillow on my arm.

Recharged the A/C. Thing took a full 22oz can of that stuff, and is still at only 25psi when the compressor kicks in. I guess it needs another one...

Thought about washing it...Nah...

Drove it to and from work then decided on the way home to take it up to 102 on the freeway. Poor truck was struggling and could not make it any higher. So I let up lol.
