Got me some new shoes yesterday. 285/75R16 (~33x11~ roughly) Mud Dawgs on 16x8 black D-hole steelies. Never heard of the tire before, no clue who it's made by. Says Summit on the sidewall, but it's not Summit Racing. They look like a cross between the MT/R and the BFG MT.
Anywho, They ride AWESOME. Had to give the tire jockey a little beer money for getting the balance so good. Had it up to an indicated 80mph this morning with absolutely no shimmy. Still need to align it. Need to replace the pitman and idler first. That's next week.
Also got Bilstein's coming next week for it, as well as, the necessary stuff for correcting the speedo. Going to put some GenII coils under it(whenever I can get to Lawrenceville to get them from DavidG ) and tweak the t-bars, then get it aligned.
Got the oil cooler lines to fix one oil leak, and the front crank seal to fix the other.
Got all the stuff to do the GenII front brake swap. Got Superwinch hubs ordered, as well as an air compressor to add OBA. Got a line on an SR axle(if bOURGE comes thru ) keeping my fingers crossed on that one. Then I need an ARB or LSD for the front and I'll be ready for Tellico in March!
Still haven't figured out what I want to about bumpers or sliders. Might go with Don, but I'll probably make them myself (with a little help from a welder friend ) Which means I'll buy the beer and ensure proper temperature and disbursement during said project
BTW, pics will be forthcoming
Sparky, you still need my old spare wheel?
EDIT: Forgot this part. Went with 5 of the same size wheels and tires. Can I hang the spare using a spacer on the back?
