Took B2 out today

Finally got to test out the $300 beater today. Happy to report everything is working as it should!I did some running around and made a stop out at a local spot to see how it worked and click some pix.Stopped off in my dads backyard also.



Took my boy with me too.






Looks like a little trimming will be needed on the rear quarters before I can fully stuff a tire up in there safely.

I took it off to figure out how I am going to make my winch bumper and while it was off I decided to trim it up for the hell of it. Seen some pix of others who did it like that and I thought it was kinda cool. Ugly or not its only temporary til my new one is done.

They are older Ultra wheels,last time I looked they didnt make this style anymore. ProComp makes one very close to it tho.


I cant wait to get some 33x12.50's in either a Trxus Mudder or Creepy Crawler come spring time. These 265/75-16 Maxxis Mudders are too narrow and the side walls have crappy protection.Although they wear better than any truck tire I have ever had.

Its a James Duff Stage 3 lift which they say is 2.5-3 inches of lift. The rear springs had some sag to them so I added the Belltech Chevy 2" drop shackles to try and level the ride again.
