I was going to tease him about finally learning how to drive and not needing those big tires anymore, then I remembered he's supplying my new tie rods and I want to live

I agree. Plus you're going to freeze your arse off running down the road at 50mph. LOL

WOW!
You guys are hard on a guy when he's not watching.

Swampers sold, I have to deliver them at SnoFari to Shawn for his buggy.

42 MTR's get ordered Monday.

Picking away at it this afternoon. About ready to run for break in. Probably tomorrow.

I had some random guy stop and take a pic of it today in the parking lot in it's wimpy condition and tell me how cool it was. So there!

You can ride with us again and you already know the rules. Actually Mike's jeep performs much better so he is much less hateful.

I run 2-3 PSI with an 81" wheelbase and both ends locked. Needless to say my group doesn't break 25MPH on dry, flat pavement

That's the hardest part about being a 1st timer. Trying to figure out what is bullshit and what is truth. Or maybe it's half the fun hell I don't know.
