    I dig all your mods. I would like to work this direction over time. Can you link the lights you got off Amazon?

    Thanks. I was with my step dad and got to tinker with his camera. My wife has a nice one too but they have about 6 different lenses including a telescopic one that were fun to use. I am still a major amateur with photography though.

    Not yet. I have had it out a few times but needless to say the first one was definitely a break-in run. I had hub on too tight which cause a bearing to fail, the cotter pin on the castle nut somehow came out and we lost a wheel/hub assembly on the trail. This bent some shackles, and the fenders on that side and bent some other things. I had everything to make the repairs on the trail but I have been reworking the fenders now into something nicer since the one got trashed. I will get some pics up soon.

    Last time I took mine out I severely under estamated the additional pounds I packed on the trailer and every bump made the tires rub on my fenders of the trailer. I am thinking it is probly best to do an axle flip so I don't have that issue any more. Just not to happy about having to raise the center of gravity

    Truck has served me well this fall. Had it out on miles of roads during the elk hunt and couldn't be more happy. Followed a few guys around on razrs and kept up with them no problem. We had an awesome hunt. Not the biggest bull ever but the most symmetrical by far. We measured back at camp and every tine except for the #1s were the same down to .125 - .25". Not to mention he was a younger bull so the meat should be really good eating.

    Pictures from the trip.

    Bed cap, roof rack, bed build, SOS sliders, and ARB awning.
    Awesome bull and the truck looks great. Getting funds ready for a rack soon. They look great glad you have the set up for awning. What one are you using?

    Mine is the smaller ARB. 48" maybe? It is nice cause it fits on the rack well and provides some shade for a few people. That being said, in a rain storm it is pretty worthless, better than nothing but the bigger awnings would definitely allow more weather protection.

    Those steelies look mean on your rig! Do you only keep those on for winter or just out on trips?

    I actually have them on full time. I plan on painting them eventually. I just really don't like the TRD off road wheels and got two sets of these steelies for about $60. One set plus spare for the truck and the same for the trailer.

    Are these the same lights you pointed me to above? How are they holding up to the weather? Some of the reviews said they fogged up quick.

    Same ones. So far I have had no problems and I will say that we had an extremely rainy summer and fall as far as Utah standards go.

    So I am in need of some help here as I research possible culprits. I went to rotate my tires tonight and found something seriously wrong. I delayed the rotation more than I wanted anyway so the front tires were a little more worn than I should have let them but I noticed that the front drivers side tire is showing some extremely bad wear patterns. Not just inside or outside wear but its like the tire has lumps in it. Any ideas?

    All my research is leading towards a bad shock absorber, incorrect toe on the alignment, or some other problem in the front suspension. The thing that is killing me is that the shock absorber has 5000 miles on it, the rest of the suspension maybe 20,000 and I had the truck aligned about 5000 miles abo.
