I've had the same tires you have, they are the same height to within 1/4" or so.

They work great in the rocks, they dig in the sand, you'd be better off on rims in the snow. I like the tires but I think these will be my last set of trepadors for a while, it's time for a change..... once I get some time on them. They will be for sale at some point, but not cheap. I have 5 all together.

6'4" or so.... with 7-8" above my head and I'm 6'1" The belly is around 17" at ride height.

I wanted to not be afraid of landing on the roof from a 20' drop. Hopefully it works out that way.

I double checked the numbers and I was a bit fuzzy... It's 6'1" to the roof and 16" under the belly. 7" head to roof.

Accessory drive. Hopefully there is enough room for a P pump so I can upgrade when I get sick of this N pump.

Stupid question, but what sepperates the 2 types of pumps, more flow and pressure? Higher reliability in the P-pump?

Mainly it's the size and displacement, the pressures are all right around 1500 psi. There are some tricks to getting the N pumps working pretty well but they will never be a trophy truck pump. To get 100% lag free hydro you have to use the biggest and best parts or spend lots of money to get a high performance pump. I'm going to give it a shot and see how well it does. I have a 1" spacer behind the N pump so I should be able to make something bugger fit if it's needed. If the p pump ends up being too difficult I'll look into running two T/C pumps.

Took a break the last couple days to help a buddy of mine get his exhaust done so it can be coated before Woodward. Dual 4", 1 7/8-2.0" stepped primaries. I did behind the collectors. It'll be in the single digit range when it's done but I'm not saying how far...



It should be finished up in a couple hours and it's back to the never ending POS...

Your exhaust looks like surgical equipment.

Amazing work
