Well it seems we are all making big improvements for this season's wheeling so I thought I better follow suit.

Right now PORC has a chunk of mine getting freash 4.88s & an ARB for the front since after the last snow day (figure 8 donuts), I developed a pinion seal leak.

Also I'm currently installing a VIAIR onboard air system. It will pneumatically control the ARB via PowerTank's handy little air switch ... no electrical ... KISS!

Finally some freash 36" IROCs on some 15x10 steelies (future home-made BLs)are due the end of this week.

Combined with my current 'home schoolin' hopefully y'all won't hardly recognize the Runner very soon. :saw: :welder:

James is correct ... I'm gona build my own beadlocks after A LOT of welding practice. What bl are U getting Daniel?

Ryan I'm getting the bias. These are def. not DD tires. According to Rick the tread just oozes right off of them around town. They have one of the highest tread/void ratios of any tire, more than a Krawler.

I'm copying Kyle. Monkey see (monkey), monkey do. :p

Hey Ed when you going to get hysteer? That push pull is not going to last long with 36s and a Locker. Please carry a spare until you replace it.

Yeah, I have seen to expect like 10k out of them. I figure I don't really drive anywhere though except to the trails. I'm gonna have to find a set of used 35 ATs though to get mounted up on a spare set of rims to drive to Tellico and anywhere far away in though.

You are probably correct. I got a spare and 2 spare birfs. You know me though once I break it, hysteer will be on the way.
