    YES! ....YES!!!.............YES!!!

    That's WAY better. ....How do you like them so far?

    The thing that's always great about your pictures is that the kids are always "in" on everything. Climbing on the rollbars, sitting in the tires.....make it a lot more personal than just looking at a plain 'ol picture of a truck.

    Congrats! Now how are you going to resolve that Jerry Can thing?

    Burt, your ride looks great with the new rubber!!!!! I hope to get mine looking like that one of these days. I have to agree with Greg72, I love the fact you have your kids in the pix. Being a school teacher, I love to see when kids are excited about someting (especially when it is something I like). My wife (of two months) and I don't have any of our own yet but I am sure to get some pix with my brand new yellow lab soon!

    Good luck on the gerry can situation, let us know how it all works out.

    In Canada we use K5s instead of dog sleds now!

    Thanks Rod! Ya I love my kids and try to get them involved in all I do! Some they like some they don't but I will say they love the K5 almost as much as I do! My daughter was being way too cool, she answered the phone and the next thing she's talking about to my wife's friend is "Daddy got some really big SuperSwampers in the mail today" soo cool Ata Girl!!
    So I would walk up to her and say "What did Daddy get?" and she would yell out SuperSwampers!! We did that all night to the point my wife was "enough all ready"! kids are cool!

    They look fun. Looks like you are a little closer to doing the Rubicon. What size did you end up with? What valve stems did you use?

    ED70K5 - I only have about 20miles on them sofar, but taking a road trip Thurs. morning out to Huntington Lake so the kids can do some camping &amp; a little wheelin. Thoes seat covers are from Cabela's. There just slip overs and are water proof. Last summer my boy spilt a coke on the front seat and it is a black spot now kinda looks like oil spill so I decided to get some covers. They are good so far but they flap in the wind if know one is sitting in the seat...

    Triaged- I ended up with 35x12.50-15 SSRs and got the shortest steel stems the shop had. I also got a couple extra stems for the parts box[​IMG], just incase!

    Thanks for the comments!!

    Hey Steve,

    I really like the Swampers. Nice job.

    Is that a Rockslider I see you working on in a couple of the photos? I want details! I knew you would get around to it before I did. Maybe if I could just finish up all the other honey do's I could get around to fabbing some up like I've want to for months.
    Mike

    Yup, I cut out the rocker panel to the bottom of the door and then cut the bottom of the fenders to match the rocker and that HigLift is holding the 3x3 square tubing I bought and will cut each end at an angle then cap the ends.
    I haven't worked out the details for mounting them yet. I may weld the 3x3 to the rockerbox and then fab a support braket for each end! I will post more when I have more.......It should turn out sweet and it will be nice to beable to HighLift from the rocker too!!
    Thanks for noticing!!
