    Got the k5 running again yesterday, was able to play around for a few hours until the batteries died. "Alt not charging" Recharged the batteries and still have an issue with air in the fuel system, woulndn't start again. Had fun while it lasted though.

    Beadlocks are from Great Lakes Offroad. Has the centering ring and anti-coning rings. The rims were 15-8 didn't measure them after the beadlock install. Thinking somewhere around 9.75-10" wide now.

    Great looking rig! I assume you fabbed that cage yourself, but what about the front and rear bumpers? Beautiful design all the way around!

    Looks really good! Have you flexed it to see if the front tires make contact?
