    Just watched today's episode. Stace is doing a truck that I just would love to have, a mid to late 40s Dodge Power Wagon.

    Plus he's puttin 49" IROKs on it too. Damn those are some big ass tires. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    And rear steering. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I can't wait to see this one finished. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    I wonder what power plant he's planning to put in. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    The axles were worked over by USA6x6. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Michelins were used by the military they are D.O.T. approved as far as I know. For the same reason Hummer beadlocks are, cause they military said so.

    The military does not have to abide by DOT regulations, because they are the military/government, they only answer to themselves.

    Stace did qualify the statement by saying "not including the military version Michelins or farm version Firestones"
