Got some new tires...37" km2's on 17" beadlocks. Got a spare also, so guess I might have to build a rear bumper.

Just wanted a smaller tire and a 17" wheel. Didn't need to be a beadlock but these were a good deal.

Installed my new rock sliders made by RDK_YJ88. Won't have to worry about further damaging my rockers anymore.

Installed a new PSC steering box and hydro assist so I can turn easily. Hard to get a great pic of the ram, but you get the idea.



Then took it on a test trip to the Mounds on Sunday with RDK_YJ88 and another buddy of ours. I only have a couple poser pics that I took with my phone. My fiancee has the "few" other pics she took.









Looks like it is time for a new windshield...

Ran good all day with no disappointments other than smashing my windshield.

Since my electric fan was on it's way out for a second time, I decided to order the Dirtbound Offroad Electric Fan Conversion Kit. Installed it yesterday and finished wiring it up today. Install was easy and wiring was simple once I figured out how I wanted to do it. I didn't get a fan controller with it as I wanted to wire two fans to come on with key and the other fan to be wired to a switch. Other than zip tying off some of the wiring it's ready for a test run.

Thanks. I like it.

I should have never gone that high, or lowered it a long time ago.
