    Looks good like it is now. Those look more like 35's though. Must be my eyes are crooked or something.

    I didn't vote. Sorry, looks the same to me. I would run what you are happy with, not what looks better. It sounds to me like it rides better and you notice it. I would look into a shackle flip and run factory springs for best ride quality.

    Are you close to STL? Going to Springfield next month?

    Where in Missouri are you? I missed the Bloomsdale mud bash this time, but I will probably be going to the next one at Robertsville if I have my Jimmy up and running.

    Didn't know there was anybody on here that close to me, that actually went to the local mud runs. Sweet.

    thought about it but going to florida on vacation instead:mad: id rather be in springfield, but yeah i liked the way it looked higher but its way more functional and i can run it way harder now and rely on the suspension to do its job now on the bumps and ruts, before one little bump would snap a shaft lol

    yessssss it is true. shortly after i awoke from my nap....ok i was passed out. i was right there by the back restrooms and it was bad a**. it had idk like 33's but it like hit the road went airborn then hit, flipped over and there it sat in the mud on it's top. the keg in the back was actually floating. i was cheering him on. i've been going there since 2004. rarely miss one. i'll have my blazer at the next one. it'll be the one broke down on the way there i'm sure. lol

    I've never taken my Jimmy through anything at Bloomsdale, it's too nasty down there, I leave it for the real big boys to play on. I just watch.

    Robertsville coming up. It's down highway 30. In well, Robertsville. You might be able to find more information on it on the web somewhere, but I heard it's like May 12th or something. If I have my truck up and running by then (probably won't happen) then I'll be down there running it. Otherwise, I'll probably go with my buddies to watch.
