Nice!!! How does it feel to get to wheel your own truck instead of just looking at pics of it wheeling?

Feels sooooooo goooooood. I love it. I did not want to stop wheelin. I don't even want to go to work today. All I want to do is tinker with it, and give it a hand job.

Is there an event coming up, I would love to come to AZ and wheel with my good old pals. I have plenty of vacation time from work to use up this year.

Truck did very well on the trail besides some fluids leaking. Got to wheel with Marlin, which was my highlight of the trip. He is one of the nicest guys I have met. As soon as I asked about my cralwer leaking, he grabed a peice of carpet, got under my truck with me, and found 2 problems. He was drawing diagrams in the dirt and explaining lots of info, and will be sending me a few goodies to try out.

Anyone want to plan a trip out here, say the Hammers???????

There's this thing called a combustion engine under the front portion of the vehicle......insert the key in the ignition once inside the vehicle.......put it in gear and step on the accelerator then just turn the wheel in the direction you want to go........duh????

..........It's like it's the first time you ever saw an automobile!

Driving a cruise ship yea, its very flexing on the highway driving 70. I was amazed to get close to 15 MPG driving up the mountains to Big Bear with the AC on. Then, for some reanson drove all the way home in 4WD, Maybe its me, but the t-case was in 2wd, but in Lo gear, and it spins the front shaft. So I drove all the way home from big bear in 4wd. HEHE. I figured the 2wd would have turned off the 4wd. That or it just stuck. Its works fine now. hehe.

Eric is right. There radials, There are vibs at 70-75, but when you have tires that are 40's, the tread tends to be viby at 75. No Death Wobbles. Drives straight as hell, and balance still holding, and these tires are amazingly quiet. There much quietier then my old 33's.
