Well about the a/t's:
I had popped a tire before and delt with finding a spare and shipping it, mounting it, balancing it, and it cost me a lot fo cash I didn't have. I've been wanting to put on some 33" m/t's for a while now, so I'm hoping to not have to deal with the popped tire, and 32" a/t's anymore and just finally get on to the 33" muds.

And these are the Swag body mounts:

Most likely km2's.

Last night I started returning my steering to stock. And my Transmission light is on? So i'm going to drop the bent up rokmen skid and check it out today.
