    Bought another truck. Spent some time on it,think I will part with it. Kinda like having two women and not enough money to go around. One will suffer. 102_1487.JPG

    Took green to ride with some jeeps. It did as well as any. Power steering hated new locker. Drove 100m there then back ,wheeled 8 hours. Fluid was clear when I got there,black when I left. Vbelts are the pitts. 102_1551.JPG 102_1611.JPG 102_1611.JPG 102_1534.JPG

    Well changed a couple of things around. Got a second set of tires mounted up. Going to hydro assist for the steering. 102_1616.JPG 102_1618.JPG 102_1620.JPG

    The valve stems are a little longer than figured on. Might change to semi flush ones. Plan is to beadlock these wheels in future.

    Ive always liked black D-window wheels (actually lookin to buy a set for my truck). If your muddin those tsl's have high reviews, i see them used alot. Even at truck pulls.

    I really like this truck. That's a solid list of parts/upgrades you've put into it so far.

    This is a wonderful truck.
