    My RTI score lost a few points as of late. Since the last the time I tried it, I added bumpers and actually attached the trans to the motor so maybe the combination of those things took a few points away.

    Can't remember who scored higher between MikeyD05 and lane but they were both up there pretty good.

    Some action shots and some not so happy cars

    More pics in the photo gallery. Had a good time and thanks to those who came today. Turn out was pretty good considering it rained all day.

    I'll post some more up later. Falling asleep sitting here.

    Quite a few people mentioned how impressed they were with your rig Mikey. One of my Samurai drivin buddies (had a fullsize) was in the crowd. He was pretty impressed so you may have converted him back.

    You'll probably flop it when you pull it off the trailer!:haha:

    A quick update on the wire in the rim fix for 16.5's, I was running 3psi in the front and zero (wouldn't read on the gauge) in the rear. Eventually I had stuffed some mud in the rear tires, or so we think, and they went completely flat and sat on the rim. Never had to do anything more than add air.

    Mile marker 9500SE winch was kinda midrange to slow on speed but the cable that came with the winch was kinda cheesy. One straight pull and it began to fray. I'll be contacting Mile marker on monday.

    He got hung up pretty bad on his t-case mount. Kert got the forklift and picked his rear end up and I winched the black tempo out from underneat him.

    The dually is pretty much all custom parts by Kert and is rolling on 36's or 37's. Shoot him a PM because I don't want to get the specs wrong.
