    Yep, I thought about it but I don't think they could take the weight and would just blow. I need them for now to get my truck in the garage or I would. I did light'um up a little and left two tracks in the drive :D .
    As for the fender flares, they are Bushwacker cut-outs and are a full cut, not just a trim. Thy make other flares for less cutting I belive. BTW, they were on the truck when I bought it.
    um.... burn out :thinking:

    That's not why I did it though.

    I swear it's been down in the low 40's at night up here. If it drops ANY lower we will have snow on the mtn. tops (IN AUGUST! WTF) some global warming, just not here :doah: .
