i am still chipping away at things i can do while i wait for parts. gonna have a mad scramble once **** shows up though. i ended up having to settle on cutting my bed to put in a cage. not the end of the world though. tent will still fit! tomorrow night im headed to cut the plate to box my frame. I hope to have that done for SL.

so far im toght on time, but should still make the deadline! I'll probably end up coming down with the paint on the bedsides still dripping.

I'm almost ready. Lift will be on soon (hopefully this weekend). 35's probably late may. Than re-seal (change out for slider while i have it out) back window. I'd like to have gears and trutrac but they will probably have to wait

The gooberment screwed up my return so I have to wait for it but I was debating buying some stuff today. I hate spending coin but I know I need to. I don't wanna be doing it all last minute but its getting close.

Edit: I just ordered my coils. I went 650 rate.

I dont just raise hell, I bring hell.

Does someone still have a site I can crash on and throw money at them? I am probably going to have a buddy coming so I will have my 2 place trailer with. I have a 10' x 17' tent that I am willing to allow people to sleep in.

Vicodin is awesome!

They're on Backorder, with no date to be delivered.

With the dollar at almost par and the price difference it's not worth a US shopper to come over here.

My duras were $880. Over here they were $1200-$1300. That was 2 years ago with not much difference in exchange rate.
