So most likely I'll just have to buy a new one which means I'm out another $150 .
Id just say you bent it during normal use. It shouldnt bend like that. I dont have the email any more, but ask Kevin if you can get the Christmas pricing. I think they did a sale of 75$ for the rad support for Christmas. That tells me there is still profit at that price. Maybe he'd be up for it.

Well I've already talked to him and he said he could take $30 off, he said he had credited it to my account, but I couldn't find how to use it, and when I messaged the company about it again they didn't respond. Sooooo not sure really, I don't have the money to blow right now, so I'll just have to stay away from wheeling much.

Yeah man, I know it says in here somewhere, but I'm at 2" and on 31x10.5s. It's a good setup for a beginning wheeler like myself.

So my local park flooded today, so I decided I'd drive through it! Sadly the gate to cross the bridge was locked and there was no way around, or else I would have gone further into the park. Here's the only pic I got, this is from the bridge, looking towards the street. The water came up probably a foot and a half I'd say, it came up to the bottom of my rocker panels at a few deeper parts.



My buddy was driving that green tacoma in the background, he hopped in to ride with me across the flooded part.


On the bright side, the water was able to wash some of the mud off of my axles and undercarriage

Yeah I do, I like them a lot, can't complain really got 5 for 700 shipped. As far as sidewalls, I didn't get a choice when I got them, I think that may be a new thing that they've started doing. But if you want a nice inexpensive tire, then I definitely recommend them.

The tread is really thick to, one time I found a screw stuck in my tire, so I took it out thinking I'd have to plug it, well I didn't end up even having to, it didn't even puncture the tire.

Finally moved my evap canister, took about 5 minutes while I was on break from work. I zip tied it into the empty space where my old air box was.

Now no canister to hit on stuff!


Zip tied in.
