Don't you need to be a little further south for that mod?

Oh, and well said!

I heard from a friend of a internet friend, from an internet forum, that if you try to do this yourself without using Savvy/Currie spinner beadlocks you WILL kill a bus load of kittens in a fiery explosion the next time you drive your jeep

Haha... In Fresno we got it all buddy. And thanks!

BTW... I don't know how many of you have seen this... but this happened a couple miles from my house. And they are standing in front of the Church that my son went to pre-school at. This guy is funny, and this is typical Fresno. It must have been a Saturday... notice the makeshift swap meet on the corner. They pop up everywhere now.

Agreed. One of the reasons I keep a salt lick next to me when I'm researching on this forum. Also why I try to connect with people I feel are in a similar situation.

You have NO idea how much this is Liz. She was right here watching that with me - we have seen it before. But Liz has the same reaction every time.

Ninja plasti dip of your chrome grill is a given in Moab buddy. I'm just hoping I don't block your radiator in the process..... and strand you in the middle of nowhere. It'll STILL be your fault for having a chrome grill though.
