    Yeah well my truck was in show condition before this after noon, hehe, after i popped the inner fender off i went to go see how much of it needed to be wacked off and i mutilated the fender even more, so now it really sticks out. The only thing is is that my dad is making me take it to the body shop for them to trim the fenders which kind of makes me mad cause i want to do it myself. oh well

    well, its kind of nice because they put the clear coat on THICK! so any scratches i get can usually be knocked out easy, if not i can usually get em to fix it. But for once i want to do some body work and i cant, oh well. I would love to do mud, but we have NO mud in my area, i think its rained twice in the last year. It sucks.

    If you just had your rear end rebuilt you should be waiting till you have an EASY 500 miles breakin time on it before you go pushing it. That's about two tanks of gas...

    Well, we used a bunch of used parts from various broken rear ends we have at work. Now im sure that a 36" swamper and a loose D60 will do a helluva lot more damage than i did.
