Trail run.

Pics of the mud are coming

aftermath:














Only issuew was my E-Fan fuse blown twice, and overheated in a mud hole. Had to stop and let it cool off for a little while and drop in a new fuse.

just got off the phone, my fenders are at BC supertrucks. Only one hitch...

a new guy at mcneil packed mine, but didnt pack the 6" for my buddy. BCST opens the box and no 6"... they didnt make the shipment. so now the 6" are going out today(from mcneil), but wont be picked up till tuesday. Brandon is doin everything he can to figure out a solution, but its looking like mine will come by themselfs, and dan's will be sent up through the states from mcneil. my biggest thing is i need the fenders by middle of next week at the latest for our spring meet. Lets hope they show up in time.

I will update as soon as i have more info.

yea i am. i figure id get them mounted so i can get a better idea of how far i wanna bring the beds out. any idea what the max you can pull them to? i was hoping about 1.5-2".

im also gonna give it a go painting them myself. may not come out perfect, but id rather save some cash if i can get them nice enough for my standards.

the farther you go the more dangerous it gets.
