    thought i\'d say howdy

    Howdy Dam**t. I've been lurking around this forum for a few months on and off. I finally got my six lug Jimmy and I figured it was time to sign up. I live in East Texas and grew up here, but lived up in North Park on the Wyoming border. Worked at the Jackson Co SO for a year. Used to spend summers in Durango, ghosting around LaPlata canyon, Vallecito, etc. I just put a new 350 in my Jimmy but might have messed up because she tops out at fifty eight miles an hour. Tons of torque with the 411 gears, but the rpm's are way too high on the interstate. This was going to be a daily driver but she's gonna get me slaughtered on the interstate. The speedo says 80-85 when i'm doing a little under sixty with 31/10.5/15's. Might have to regear, or swap housings. Not looking forward to it. Anyway, love my Jimmy. Good to be aboard...

    Hey, look at the positive side. Now you have an excuse to put some bigger tires on it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    naturally the 33's are in the future and there's pleeennnty of room in the wells, but these are new so i'll have to wear them out first, or put them on my swampthang66exbronco. i'm in the conroe area. when i do go with the 33's, you have any idea what i can expect?
