Had a spare 33" tire on a rim so I strapped it down on top of the tuffy box, not fullsize but better than nothing. Also took the factory shocks from my LJ and put them on the front. They limit the travel but I'm tired of the bouncin lol. Hopefully they will work till I can get some new ones. The HD steering box mount is suppose to be here Thursday.

Here are some pics borrowed from Johnny9 from last Saturdays ride. Took it easy on it cause I didn't want to break anything. Had a few little issues (timing problem, dist. cap came off, and a wire came loose and popped the fuse) but overall it did good.
