    i got the truck aligned on friday, and that helped, but i still have side to side wooble when goin above 35mph. im hoping that its from the mostly worn out tires that arent balanced, and that it isnt the kingpins. any thoughts on that?

    anyways, today i put most of the soft top on because its nice out now. tell me what you think. this summer im going to change a good bit of stuff, but heres how it sits now

    With worn out/unbalanced tires as big as yours, there is about a 100% chance of some vibration.

    I've had my top off for the past 2 months, and I wish it would rain so I'd have a good reason to put it back on. That's a mean lookin truck you got there muddybuddy.

    i opted to get the pickup truck type soft top just for that reason. i plan to keep the top off the whole summer, and when theres a hint of rain i can jus slap the soft top on in 5min and im fine, only down side is that you can only fit 2 ppl with it on, oh well.
