    It's true! And, apparently it's lucky too!

    They'll be on day after tomorrow.

    Thanks for the new sig.

    I have to wait for the hobby shop to open on Thurs before I can get them mounted, but I will check with Silas' tomorrow to see what they want.

    Yeah if I run the pig. No, I'll be tending to the camp and armoralling the lugs.

    That does make a good point about needing a few spare axles.

    Tires are on

    I know it's nothing special to you that have 35's, but it's sumthin' to me! Too bad I have to put the 31's back on to keep it as the DD.:(

    We will give you a little while then you will be like, man I need some 38+" tires.

    Then once oyu get them, look back on 35's and think man those things were tiny.


    Looks good though. Can't wait to see/hear how they handle.

    They sound like 2 C-130s flying at about 100 feet. I took the kids for a ride just to hear it.

    No doubt about the 38s. Just like anything else.
