That thing needs a rattle can job lol. Check back on my build next week if you're interested. I'll have more pics of the progress on my rattle can camo tan job.

P/S you doing the cut and fold up front or is that just relief cuts?

New Mexico Driving Rules...
  • As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.
  • Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.
  • NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
  • Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Itís called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.

Steering and braking isn't that bad really, just go easy on them and its no big deal. If you do decide on running the 33s you're looking at get yourself a junkyard tranny cooler. Pull a few if you can, the cleaner the fluid looks the better.

Maybe pull some calipers while you're at the junkyard too . And yes of course you still will want a tranny cooler with a 5speed.
