3500 is close to stock. I weighed it with all my trail tools, big sub box, skids, bumpers, rock rails, and heavy 33's. I bet you can do it with your lack of body panels.

Clean as hell now

Plasti-dipped my rims.


Power washer messed them up because I didn't let them cure completely though so I have to fix two of them. Blah.

That's actually because of what parts I cleaned. They don't look like that now (after I washed the whole thing, obviously).

I just re-read my post, and you're right. I did say discussing was a federal offense. I must not have read over my post before hitting submit. Sorry about that misinformation due to letting my fingers go faster than my brain

The action of tampering or removing emission equipment is against the Clean Air Act. Discussing removal of said equipment is not allowed on the forum.

The second post quoted above suggests that it's only an offence to do it but in an earlier one you suggest that it's an offence to even talk about it (and that's 2 different things).

If it's an offence to even talk about it, when did Thought Crime (from "1984") become a reality in the USA?

Logically, because I live in a region where emissions kit is not required, I can talk about it when US based members can't!!

What's the melting point of Plasti-Dip? I would think if you got your brakes good and hot, hilarity would not ensue
