Very cool! I love it back there.

naw! i like my 4x2 lol i think if I had more weight in the back like my friend I would have been fine. He had no problem. But I would be right behind him and just stop and start spinning.

I want a bigger motor haha

Your tires remind me of another guy who ran those same OEMs on an Azusa trip a few years back. BFG would have held up more, much thicker tread, better rubber compound too.

I'll sell you mine ! LOL , so I ended up not having any money for tires and having to buy some old used/ almost bald tires for 40$ so I could drive without worrying about popping, they will hold me over a few more weeks for new ones.

Thanks, I like the billet to!

08xlt it's out the 15 before the exit to wrightwood? I don't really know directions unless I showed you haha slot of little roads that take you to the top
