try a static clip. looks way better and takes less weight. i balanced my 35" KM2s with at the most of 3oz of weight.

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.

Well I would have but I'm going on my first real wheeling trip tomorrow morning so I figured it would be a good idea to have them on, even if they were chrome.

at least you know the wont rust, i got black ones from them but they looked like that got a crate of them the supplier just tossed them all into, the paint was horribly chipped and peeling but they said thats how all of them were, i stripped them and painted them but the paint hasnt held up just on the highway really well, i didnt have access to a sandblaster at the time but i dont think i will be able to get them off easily in my apt parking lot w/o getting *****ed at since we cant work on vehicles here... like there is any room to do anything other than checking my oil.

Resurected it from its winter slumber. Had to park the DD for repairs/upgrades. Been 5 months since I drove it. Felt weird. Got use to the 318 then went to the I6 with 3.55s and 34" LTBs!

Got dual code 43s again. Replaced the plugs on it and that fixed it.... Till now. Only put on about 400 miles since then (its a trail toy/back up vehicle that has seen ~6k in miles since I bought it 5 yrs ago)..... Damn oil blowing through the exhaust..... Oh well more things to add to the fix it list for this.

i like the mud flaps.


i need to figure out why i have no fog lights, and hopefully tomorrow i can pick up some s-10 leaf springs and one of those NAPA locking cables so i can make a mechanical actuator for my 4x4.

Is it considered "stuck" if you get yourself out?

yesterday my steering stabilizer came in. so today i decided to go install it and rough country sent me the wrong bolt that goes on the axle side. to make things easier, i just went to tractor and supply and bought another one instead of calling rc and correcting the problem. it was a somewhat inconvient for me
