    And the winch didn't come to me. That's sitting at Billy's shop in Cali and will come with my front and rear bumper, leaf springs, and wheels if I can swing it. I doubt that though. As much as I'd love to right now. Burned through that money tree pretty quickly lol.

    Those don't look very good. In fact you should just freight them to my house.

    I don't know why more people don't run these tires. At under 60 pounds and 34" x10.5" I think it's the ideal tire size for mid travel setups.

    Who did you order these through? They want $400 locally for the tires I want and are only about $310 at 4wheels parts. I might just bypass the the local rip offs if shipping isn't too much.

    Weird, I know.

    I think at this point you're welcome would be appropriate. Haha, it's gonna be a blast. Just talked with ORI and they have my struts in stock early, but they're not orange. I'm gonna hold out for those since I got this a few days ago.
