    And check out this luck: turns out that with the custom springs and all the mods to finagle that rear to work, I didn't have to chop the crap out of the rear wheel wells to stuff the 37's. Slight trimming and hammering/rolling of the front lip to soften the tire's entry, but otherwise good thus far.

    Kinda wish inhad started the wheel search earlier, maybe found some 17x9 with 3.5BS instead, but it'll do.

    So far with the limited time out, it does really well. I have to get used to the new center of gravity, though... Being so tall now I worry about flopping!

    Anyone have wonderful ideas for how to find the limit without ACTUALLY flopping? I've got one that involves a local rental shop, a forklift and some heavy duty chains... Still got to run it by them ;-)

    Eh this place really isn't all that awesome. There's like a whopping ONE small area that is worth showing up to! Rest of the trails are yawns. They rate things "difficult" but they just mean "skinny". All scratched up but nothing that made me feel it was worth it :-/. Have some not-so-awesome pics to post once I get of the hill in a couple of days.
