X2 - they look bigger than the 44's I just picked up. Too bad they don't make the MTR's for a 16.5 wheel. Maybe if I wasn't too stubborn to give up the HMMWV wheels

Upgraded the front shafts at the same time. Gonna have the rear shaft redone and upgraded before the 10th. Gonna see about replacing my rear lower links with aluminum before the 10th as well.
