Limiting strap setup I used in the front and rear to not allow the LA's to drop when using the highlift.

What happened was I blew the drivers rear tire, and my spare was a 31". Since I have the aussie in the rear, I could not run that. I swapped the front drivers tire to the rear, to get off the trail. Then, we had a directional 36" Irok back at camp for a spare. Too bad it was directional for the passenger side. So then I put the 37 that was on the passenger front, to the drivers front, and then the 36" Irok, on the pass front.

Confusing, huh.





Air setup came in handy

And the video where the tire blew out... Videos do not do justice at all. I was hitting the gas to climb the hill.

Dont do a 3" on the 4.0.... 2.5" is the way to go. They sound great and are thick so they dampen the noise and last longer.

I never posted final pictures of the new cb mount. It is nice because I shortened to the 3' antenna, and eliminated the spring and foldover setup. The Coax cable end got all screwed up so I had to replace it, in a pinch so I ran to the truck stop and bought another one to run from the CB to the back.



And, final install pictures.

Time to show the body damage.... IDK what I will do yet, I think I will try and pull the passenger door one out. The window rolls up and down slow, I would hate for it to get stuck. Lost the rain guard too anyone know where I can buy just the individual one instead of the entire set? It says "AVS" on the rain guard.









And the tire setup I am driving on. Its funny because the tires are wider, and have a bigger backspacing. Looks kinda goofy if you actually look at it.
