    <font color="green"> I have 42s and they're heavy bastards. Nothing compared to how heavy they are once they're mounted on the hummer wheels though. I loaded them into my S-10 by just getting one of the side lugs to hook onto the tailgate then rolled them right in. Mounted on the Hummer wheels they gotta weigh over 150 lbs each and are as awkward as 3 legged retarded 13 year old boy. </font>

    Yeah, gettin them into the yota wasnt TOO bad, a slight chore. But with that hummer rim mounted, YIKES! I was going to do a spare tire carrier, but I think I'm going to be forced to sit that puppy in the bed, I could never lift it the 4-5feet to get it on a carrier.

    you should see the guy I hang out with that has 42s on his Ford move his spare around. Well I should say you should see Malik the guy he works with move it around cause the kid that owns the ford isn't much bigger than me and there is no way I am getting a 42 with rim and balancing into the back of a Ford F250 with 8" of suspension lift and 3" of body.

    Ordered from Usa6x6.com from daniel little. $2 each. He shipped them fedex in a fairly timly fashion, I was satisfied.

    Fedex on the other hand, takes for bloody ever. Seems 10x longer when you have tires waiting to be aired up.

    [/ QUOTE ]Something tells me it isn't Fedex that is taking forever... If you know what I'm saying. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    But on an other note... the last time I was expecting something to arrive from feded, it was two 2.5" AAL's. They arrived in a Uhaul truck, and the package was open, and one was missing. The guy was gone by the time I realised it. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    Daniel shipped the stuff within 5 day of ordering, he gave me a tracking #, so I KNOW the damn package was sititng in a fedex facility for a week.

    I've heard some bad things about him, but I thought I'd give him a try, and so far, I havent been disapointed.

    Should arrive soon, we'll see how many "peices" its in /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Hadn't compared prices. Good to know he has some parts cheaper. Maybe his new facility will increase his ammt of satisfied customers.
