    Finally got it out of the garage. Last time I talked to you, you was doing brakes and adjusting pinion angles.
    Looks mean sitting in the driveway with those huge meats!

    I hope you don`t plan on running mud, if so, you`re going to be using that winch more than anticipated :crazy: :crazy:

    Do you have cross-over steering? It should help with the bump steer.

    Watch out for standing water on the roads. In my first K5, I hit a puddle next to the curb and it pulled me up on the curb and I took out a little tree. Luckly, I gained control before I hit a pole. The tree was soo small it didn't even leave a mark. I was runnin' 35s.
