    Will have a few better pics later. I am stoked! These tires rock so far also. Do have a few questions though... anyone know the part number/size of the breather tube the presses into the dana 44 diff? Still waiting to install my ORD steering brace...anyone got install pics of one?

    Very sharp!!! You gonna trim the wheel wells at all? Is that just a 4" lift on there?

    Very nice rig. Did you make the spare carrier on the back. Have been considering doing the same. Where did you attach it under the bumber. ?extra bracing?. Anyway, congrads on a sweet ride. Used to live in San Jose early 90's in Cambell.

    Thanks for the comments, the tire carrier was built by me and my future father-in-law. You can see a little more of it on my web site that might answer some q's about it.
    Campbell eh...I love it there, dont know why you would leave.

    Tweety, dig the rig man!

    Thanks for the tip, I'll take a look at your website. My only explanation for leaving Cambell is I was tired of the goodlife and needed some hard living in the cold climate, or so I thought. 10 years later I'm still up here. Have considered moving back many times. Thinking more seriously of moving to Redding CA. ? I think I would have to sell my truck and most of my toys since the emissions requirements are more stringent. I need to check with the powers that be in CA to find out. Thanks for the tips. I'm going to try and build a tire carrier soon. Looks like yours is made out of square stock mild steel tubing. I'll find out what I can from your site. Thanks again.

    Looked at your site, wow, quite the audio junky! /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif Anyway, read that you made it out of stainless, saw the bracing pic as well. I'll see what I can engineer, my brother-in-law is a metal fabricator so he can help. PM you about the tires and rims. Let me know if available. Again nice rig, looks like it needs a recovery system mounted up front to add balance. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yeap, all stainless /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Still one more brace to make, will be done sometime before summer though. Car audio kicks ass...cant seem to find a hobby that doesnt remove all the money from my bank account /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
    Thanks for the comps /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
