    rebuilt the front and rear brakes, new master cylinder, put in new clutch, new tires, repainted the body, and all new lights. Its rides great, however, in the near future i gotta rebuild the steering box. I may get crazy at the end of the summer and regear it. As of now, Its only got a crawl ratio of 23.

    Wow Paul. Great job bro. Thats alot more than I thought you did. Hopefully you can bring it down here before summer ends. I would like to see it.
    How bad were the tires?
    Have you done any suspension work?

    it came with a lift so no suspension work. The tires were so bad i could pull tread off with my hand. I drove it around my neighborhood and ended up in my neighbors yard cause I couldn't keep the damn thing straight and the breaks sucked. Runs wonderfully now though. i'm just waiting to get it rewired so I can get it road ready so I can make it to trails without trailering it. I put a break controller in my truck and it pulls about 6000lbs no problem.

    Do you want my Drawtite?

    It might be too much of a problem to uninstall though.

    Thats funny. those tires have probably sat there through everything for at least 3 years. I forgot to ask... Is there any rust on it? What engine does it have?
