these just arrived today from CCOR



I gave the same guys a call today to check their gear prices for HP30 Yukon 4.56s. Dam good price, Ill probably order them tomorrow. Think my mom is ordering my 44a gears here shortly for my christmas present, and I talked my dad into getting me the MVC truss/skid yesterday for christmas as well (divorced parents = 2 christmas' )

this might get fixed sooner than I originally planned.

You trying to get it driveable over winter break?

Your rack is under 8" of snow, and I don't have one of the cross bars, otherwise it'd be in the mail.

i was aiming to at least have it 2wd'able. was thinking of maybe buying 2 cheap *** bearings and throwing them in the front just so i can have 4wd for the winter if needed. wouldnt worry about blowing them up because the hp30 is getting built

how you missing a crossrail?

It's the one I had the Hella 500's mounted to for a bit. I got sick of listening to the wind noise with the sunroof open, so I took that rail off. Needless to say it's in my parent's garage 150 miles away.

You don't need 4x4 for the winter, tokyo drift that **** wherever you need to go.

well of course, hell the aussie out back will do that on its own in the snow. But I could prolly also go around and pull people out if we got snow and charge them like $10-$20. or at least my friend had that idea lol.

Cut out the rubber then beat the hell out of the metal to get them out if you don't plan on reusing them. Otherwise, you can attempt to press them out. They are a real PITA.
