    Just orders the 5100/AAL lift. 15x8 wheels and 33x12.50 tires...
    Subbed!

    Do I see a hi-lift mounted in the bed? I am trying to figure out where/how I want to mount my hi-lift. I would love to see some pics.

    Thanks! I was getting tired of stuff bouncing around in the back so I decided to do something about it one weekend. I'm going to be making a new one that has a bracket for my air tank and a different shovel holder.

    The strap is the Poison Spyder 3 way brought in by a local shop here in Calgary called The Gear Shop. The caribeners are from a local climbing shop rated for 5000lbs each.

    More updates...I cut off the side handles on the All Pro bumper. I didnt like them to begin with, so it was just a matter of time before I got the grinder out and chopped them off...

    I did a little road trip to BC to see my brother and do some biking. I've put on the TJM Hawse fairlead as well.
