    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    I started listening to the Garth Brooks channel on Sirius. I'm surprised at how in depth his play list, which shouldn't surprise me with his versatility. This just played. I don't know why this group came to mind. o_O

    Congrats!

    I'll bite...does it really matter at the end of the day? At least for those of us that change our oil every 3-5K miles? Plus, I had/will have a 3rd gen and use OEM cartridges, so...neither! :D

    Thanks! Now just have to figure out how many threads I need to have exposed to achieve the appropriate ride height. Info on that seems to be all over the place. Plus figuring out how many extra threads to "expose" on the driver's side for lean. All while maintaining the appropriate amount of droop! Fun times. Going to pick up an SPC compressor and some 16" punches off of Amazon...

    I drove through 1 a couple weeks ago covered in mud and pulling a trailer full of mulch.
    Definitely wanted to see more practical use rigs then show jeeps w/ 37s polished up.

    Dude, from one stranger to another, from one Dad to another, congratulations on the beautiful baby #2. I hope everyone is well, especially mama. My wife and I had baby #2 in December.

    It depends where you go, it is a little on the longer side but Potomac and the Bay would be good. Occoquan should be decent, but that's starting to get away from quick maneuvering into point it straight and paddle for hours. The 15.5-17.5 ft length may fare better around here, especially with sone of the reservoirs.

    Garth channel is pretty good. Lots of variety on there. I like the highway as well.

    My concern is the weight capacity and the footwell area. Max weight at 300 pounds wouldn't do me a whole lot of good unless I make it a submarine. The smaller ones that can handle the weight don't have the foot well space for the frigates below my ankles. The appeal with the buddy of mine back in MI was to be able to load up for a week in dual tandems and just cruise the lakes and camp. Smaller would be nicer, but they just don't have the room I need unless I went open well.

    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    I've been a Garth fan ever since I saw him in Detroit at the Hoedown, a three day country music fest that ran for 15 years or so. No Fences album was out and he had five big songs from that album. So I went down there for the afternoon to actually see the headliner, and was just impressed by the performance. I bought the album the next day. Saw him 15 years later, and what a show.

    Anyway, now and then I just hear something that surprises me. And it's one of the few channels that doesn't operate on the top 40 playlist, which is another reason to like it.

    Don't know if you heard, but Santana has a special channel starting on 26 today.

    Question from the cheap seats. I'm starting to seriously look at wheels for a road set of tires, and keep what I have for off-road. (KO2's are heavy). Started looking at American made (vs China) and found these. But the price is a but surprising. Anything I should be concerned about with company, construction, price? TIA.

    I see nothing wrong with them. Had to look them up. As soon as I seen the name, figured you are good. U.S. wheel, have been doing steel wheels for years. The Aluminum must be a new venture in their product line. If I was looking, I’d go for it.

    Verify hub size. Specs. say 108. Not sure what the taco is. I’d try to find some reviews as well.
