    Nice rig. So, did your tires make a big difference when wheeling? I bet your locker is more effective now.

    Thanks, i haven't really been able to wheel much with the new tires, but the little bit of wheeling i did they helped immensely.

    In those pictures i was only in 2wd but did have the locker engaged, absolutely no wheelspin, with my old dunlops i would've had wheelspin, and possibly had to engage 4wd.

    They ride good onroad to, they do have a tendency to pick up pebbles from the roadway and throw them, but it's not a issue for me as they're tucked into the wheel wells.

    EDIT: i just remembered that the tires were aired down to 20 PSI when i was playing around.

    Thanks Mark, the only thing happening in the next few months is a bedliner, and maybe some seat covers.
    My other money is going to some Duallys (from Ben) for my quad, and a browning BPS.

    Well i will be lifting my truck in the rear a little (don't like the little bit of "bro" i'm getting with my quad in the back) and i might be putting on new shocks, but other than that nothing, sliders should be ordered next spring though, depends on how busy school is and what job i can get.

    removed the front mud flaps the other day, gonna shorten them tomorrow if i have time, then back on they go.
    Also have 2 55w halogen lights to put in the front bumper valance (just gotta stop being lazy and make a mount), and i've got the CB,COAX, and antenna, just gotta get a mount that converts COAX to what the firestick uses.

    Also, BFG A/T KO's don't do to well on wet roads, at one of the stop lights on the way home from school i was a 1 tire fire, gotta remember to get some sand bags to throw in the bed for wet season.

    Lol, BFG A/T's don't do well in anything it seems. Mine instantly turned into NASCAR racing slicks when it came to mud

    I wasn't helping any, I was driving like it was dry.

    I drove to the DFG office the other day when it was really raining, but I was driving for the conditions.

    Not yet, haven't really had time with school, I need to get ahold of Doug to see how much he wants for just the springs and I do the work, just so I don't have to the junk yard.

    I think I'm gonna go for 2" of lift in the back, and get additional lift later with shackles (gonna need the height when I get CO's)

    If i went with just springs in the front i'd do either eibachs, or 883's.
    But i want the adjustability of CO's

    ^You can always do the Toytec coilover option like i did. I did the bilsteins first, then bought springs and collars later on...

    I'd like to go with a 2.5 when i get a CO, but if i need to get new coils i'll get eibachs (so i don't need to get new shocks)
