Just sold my headunit for 350$, what can I buy now?! haha Getting a 3"x30,000lbs recovery strap (no hooks) tomorrow morning, but what else..

Edit: Thinking of getting the summit 3" BL, on sale now for 150$. Only thing is doing the work... Dont really feel like it haha. I just want it for more clearance in the front, which could be solved be a fabbed bumper. I hate making extra money, too many decisions

Yeah the only way to get any actual ground clearance is to get bigger tires. I would probably save the money for right now.

Oh, Joe I wanted to make sure that you did call R/C and let them know that we have a group that wants to camp there?

Should have it back early this week. I dropped it at Performance Evolution. Matt said it shouldn't be more than 200. Had to have the gears sandblasted cause I let them sit outside. He said the price may even be under 200 if he doesn't have to build a jig to hold it straight.

I think you have an 8.8 right? If so he said he does them all day long in the Mustangs so it shouldn't be that bad.

I don't know if he would install the Explorer axle in the truck but he can definately handle the locker install for you.

Travel itinerary(?) is made. Leaving Ottawa at 4pm, should be there around 10:30. Drink up before bed (lol). Then leaving Sunday after wheelin (if that's still happening). Getting home very late.

Simple, yet efficient haha

I found a Mile Marker PE8000 winch, couple years old, used a few times, with the remote for 350$. Anyone think it's worth 300?
