Wow looking good man! This build is 7 pages of chit chat then you just pulled out the big guns on us all at once. Sensory overload in half a page haha.

Im envious of the cargo box, Im at that point where I really need to figure something out similar to that. Keep up the good work, nice to see parts roll in and get installed all at once.

So today i put on my quick disconnects not sure if theyre on right or not there kinda angled a little bit but it was amazing how much it stiffened up.... and also ripped off the plastic under the front bumper. Finally glad to have it out of the shop and driving it, feels good but makes a popping noise or something similar to that when i turn, Ive heard it could be the cv boot? not sure anybody have some ideas or advice?

Did the tires fit a stock or did you have to cut

havent really had it on ice but they work good in the little snow ive played in, but i hear the BFG AT's are one of the best and the BFG Mud Terrains are pretty good from what i hear.... the thing i like about the BFG's atleast they used to have a line of rubber between each tread that prevents ice sticking to a flat surface.... not sure if they still do though

nice ive heard lots of great things on these duratracs as well though! as far as the BFG ALL TERRAIN i had a set on a truck that was only 2wd and it did great in light snow with those tires. i like good year though.
