    [/ QUOTE ]
    ive only driven it for a few days since the work but so far these tires rock!!! i know they are not hardcore offroad tires but i went up an old dirt road that still has like 6-7" of snow in parts, walked through it w/o a problem in 2wd. there is very little road noise, and they seem to have excellent wet traction... this truck feels exactly the same as it did with the 31s. i cant wait to get some decent mud so i can test a little more /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Nice. I see you converted your A/C to 134. I did mine 2 years ago. I need it in AZ. Sure looks cold in NY.

    Oh, Cool, Your THAT guy!!

    I have a vehicle that I can tow it with, Just trying to get the final plan going so i can drop the 76 and take the 89 the same day. No wasted trips. If your around then, we should hook up. A local K5er is going to help me "cheyennekid" only live's 7 miles from me. He came over and helped me rip the 87 apart.
