    I really wish I would have bought a bigger aluminum trailer when I got mine. I was not expecting them to be 2x the price in 10 years

    So. Many. Stickers.
    My previous boss has three, plus a trailer big enough for them.

    Of course, he's got a massive house, 40 acres around it, and property at lake of the Ozarks.

    Fucker.

    It has occurred to me that my goal of wanting to build out a nice rig is not much different than wanting to live in a van, down by the river. I’m fine with that. Paying the bills would be a bit harder, but I hear there are good opportunities in the motivational speaker industry.

    They're probably a lot more fun than you'd think.

    Plus, if it breaks you can just limp it or tow it back to the trailer and tow it home and fix it.

    Different strokes.

    Some people think we're crazy for wheeling our daily drivers.:notsure:

    @Thatbassguy I sincerely believe that your solution to the rear of your 4Runner being under dampened is the new OME MT64s in the heavy load version. I have the medium load and damn do they ride just outstanding on road and the little off-road I have done they are wonderful as well.

    I don't doubt they're a buttload of fun, but breaking them is real and fixing them ain't cheap. I wonder what it cost that guy we pulled outta that mudhole at Tigerton to rebuild/replace his motor. $9k?

    OK, hivemind...

    There's this guy in the Chicago area that wants to swap wheels/tires. It would be my 32s for his skinny 33s. Both have approx 10/32 tread left, so that would be a wash. It get me on 33s and I could wait probably until fall to buy AT4w's.

    What say you...
