It's not so much that I had left where as it is that I'm no longer married so don't have the time to play online anymore.

yeah I bet you could of. blend in the other side.

Should be getting out more within the next month or so, just taking care of some of the little issues, then have to look for some 37-39's for the rig.

was able to get a couple pics of the Jeep as it sits now. It is not the same without 37" tires on it. Just did a 10 min Rusto' paint job on it for the winter. looks good going down the highway, and all the runs give me an extra 10 hp.

the skulls, I had bought a rocker sticker kit for $25 from auto zone. Turn out better then I expected I must say. wish i had bought a brand new electric wagner paint sprayer for the job then wouldn't of had the runs as i used a freebie one. But for $50 to have a new gun, $30 for a gallon of oil based paint, and $10 for tape, and just a nice day, can have a paint job on the rig for under $100 that is decent enough to spend $5 now and then at the car wash and not give a shit out on the trail about scratching it, as wal-mart stocks big cans of touch up paint.
