    Just sharing a look with the newly installed rear sliding window and a swap from the rally wheels and fat rubber to the old school original look with snow tires, not that I’ll be out in it that much.

    @Tom Sawyer Looks good. I prefer the factory wheels to anything else when the hub caps are all present. What size are the snow tires?

    9D64C26F-6353-43AF-B448-C5DC2FEEDA45.jpeg Got it out of a 2 owner (2 old guys) in Florida in March. 51K mi. Now has oil undercoating, Line-X bedliner, and a warm garage. I put the snows to protect the new rally wheels from salt kicking around but it will probably see minimum snow action. I’m trying real hard to protect it. It is solid through and through. Want to keep it that way.

    Got a new issue though. Brother-in-law says it looks like it should be on railroad tracks. A new look at from behind at a slight angle and I agree. Just learned yesterday that the rear track is 3 inches narrower than the front. Can’t stand it. Want to use 1 1/2” spacers and bring those rear tires out a bit. Thoughts on that? Think it will help?

    Now that is one beautiful square!! I really dig those rally's on it! Very nice truck.

    In any snow (if it was mine), I wouldn't move it beyond the driveway. A lot of the crap thrown on the road in the winter it doesn't matter what you have for undercoating, that crap works itself into places like crazy. Get some of that crap between the trim & body, or trim & fender-wells, watch the bubbles under the paint form and kiss them goodbye years later.

    Again, sharp looking truck.
    I'd run the spacers. I plan to. Can't stand an offset track, unless it's on a hot rod with fatter tires in the rear.

    Thanks for the love folks, really appreciate it. Unfortunately, because I’m semi retired and this is my daily driver it will see some of the shit they throw down in the winter. I’ll just do my best to keep it clean. It will always have a chance to drip dry at night at least, do the undercarriage wash as often as I can. At night and On the weekends I drive the wife’s car, which is a new 6 speed Mini Countryman. That is a whole lot of fun, a totally different dynamic, to say the least. Truck stays dry (and warm).
    BTW....the rear window, which is pristine, is available free to anyone within driving distance of 01826. Is being stored comfortably in slider box but is more expensive to ship than what a new one costs so that limits us. I am willing to go 1 hour out with it if that helps.
