WOW!! You did a great job. Thanks for the self confidence boost. I am going to have to start planning phase 4 for the Money Pit. The action shots are a great help to get a scope of the results. Thanks.

looks good, to be honest I kind of like it better with the small and scrappy look vs. the big tires.

I kinda do too, I think it would look best with 37's i think. I'm going to set it up best I can with the 42's and run see how it does, but it looks kinda funny with tires that big. I want to keep it low, and with those tires I may not be able to keep it where I want. It was built around 35-37" tire. Who knows maybe in another year or so i'll step back down, I'm pretty sure my next tire will be a sticky.
