    Reference this thread http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=148395

    I bolted up my 37" TSL's last night. I've got a little trimming to do. But I think it's going to work fine with just the 4" kit. I did add an inch in the rear to fix the sag but it just evened it out.

    So now I gotta buy some more discs for the grinder and get dirty. I'll throw up pics as soon as I get them! Cheers :grind: :k5: :saweet:

    So after doing one corner, I realized it was silly to use the grinder so I coughed up 32 bucks and change for a sawzall and some blades. Hopefully the other three fenders will go much smoother. :hack: :k5:...need to fit those 37s

    You're doing it with a :grind:? Wow, you're brave!

    If you were closer, sure ... but you are 1700 miles away from me, so it's a bit of a commute :haha:

    Dammit, now you have me :thinking: about something bigger than my 35"s ... no, no, my 10-bolt would break... and I gotta try out the ARB in it BEFORE... :D

    You know Ive bought a few tools from H.F. like impact wrench, sheer's.. that worked great. My buddy's bought power tools there with no problems... my paint gun I got there is crap. Pipe bender was cool too. Tho for a swaz-all I have a $350 commercial Dewalt. Has 2 battery packs that last for a while and an adapter to just go with the cord. Works like a Champ!! Like a hot knife through butta!! :haha:

    Yeah if I had the choice I'd outfit my whole garage with Dewalt. But for the time being, gotta go with the cheap stuff. I do have a Dewalt 4 1/2" grinder though and it's a pretty sweet machine as far as grinders go!

    Don't know why you'd get to #4 if they aren't worth a damn?



    I've had my HF sawsall and grinder for about a year, and i beat the crap out of them and never even had to replace the brushes.

    I have their chop saw, grinders, 110V impact, pipe bender, and a few other items. The only tow I have really been disapointed with are their sawzall (broke on it's second use) and thier air-body saw (barely moves under its own power let alone when put against sheet).

    only good thing about HF is that if you keep the reciept they'll give you a new one. since it's only a mile from my house if I burn something up I just take it back and start working on burning up the next one.

    Don't try to cut HardyPlank siding with one of those saws. As always, you get what you pay for.
