New wheels and new offroad tires

After running the Crager street locks for a few months... I figured out that they are just too heavy for my little 3.0 and decided to trade my friend for his aluminum wheels. Knowing i was going to but new wheels in the spring, I wanted to see if it was worth the extra money to get aluminum over steel, for power and mpg. And there is a very noticable difference between the two... definatly going with black aluminum wheels when the time comes. I also picked up a set of 35 13.5 mickey thompson bais baja claws for free, threw them on my old steel wheels sitting in the garage and now I have my self some decent wheeling tires. The 2 are a little worn but should still do great in deep mud or snow. should being the key word lol Also got the better looking mirrors finally. Let me know what ya think.



Silver diff cover is now black fyi








Exhaust FOR SALE








My truck next to my buddies 02 fx4 twin stick with a body and superlift rollin on 35 12.5 Cooper STTs

Yeah. Either way it looks good though. Just pick yourself up two new tires for the front and be done with it until the rears are in worse shape then pick up two more for the rear. That didnt make any sense but you know what i mean.

Well... the whole idea behind these was because they were free lol I'm in college and cant afford new tires right now. The 2 rear ones arn't that bad... the front have seen better days... bet I put a hundred or so miles on them. Wet, dry, salted roads, never had a problem. Just drive sensible.

Truck looks good though man! I almost bought a gold 01 that was double lifted before I bought mine, so it's cool to see gold on 35's! haha

Thanks guys. My buddy is actually on here but doesn't have internet at his house. So he's never on. But that truck is sweet... Never seen it so stuck that it couldn't get itself out. He did all the work himself... pretty cool truck

And scott... I kinda need two more 35s too... the front are a little on the worn side... but serve the purpose for sweet pictures lol

I took the side dump off after I did the lift... Looked goofy... Only problem with this exhaust is backpressure.... I used to have decent power but with this exhaust... the little 3.0 is dying lol I'm gonna run a single out the side as soon as i find a buyer for this.... I'd take 150 for muffler, tail pipes, and tips. If you do a body lift... I also have the pipe to raise the exhaust up to where it looks good with the bumper. I'd cut it off and load it for ya bud! Oh.. and thanks for the compliment.
