    No, it’s still in the fender. My tires are juuuuuuuust small enough to where I can keep part of the fender liner so the intake isn’t exposed.

    They've been available for years but are only in 37x12.50 and up. I think you are mistaken these with the KM3 these are the KX aka Krawlers

    It's like every morning is harder to get going than the one before it.

    I think I was supposed to be rich. This work shit sucks!

    Just woke up. Man does 10 hours of sleep feel good. Catching up after a few long days is much needed!

    Anyways, onto the task at hand. I did a test plug with a painted washer and it didn’t look good at allll. The paint cracked from the rubber washer flexing and looked terrible. So then I tried it with an unpainted black washer. I don’t hate it. Thoughts? The alternative is to secure the plugs with no washer, so maybe a little silicone.

    No, none at all! And after leaving them open for a few weeks it really doesn’t bother me, but I’d still prefer to have them plugged for aesthetics

    Randy has no problem leaving any of his holes open.

    But to actually contribute, I think the black washers will compliment the black/white theme you already have going on.

    And the rear! Overall I’m happy with how it came out, but it’s not as perfect as I imagined it’d all be. Either way it’s better than the open holes imo.
