Savvy has them, unsure of when they'll release. You've got time!

Actually, we split all the bills 50/50 and have separate accounts. She spends her money on what every she wants, and I spend mine on whatever I want. On top of that, last night she took me out to dinner and paid!

Actually, tires and wheels are one of the first things I need to mock everything up for clearances.

Looks like a BFG all terrain in the middle with wider spacing. Hmm... I wonder if they are going to weigh 500 pounds a tire?

We have the same arrangement. Joint accounts are for suckers. Except the one for our mortgage payment...

Awesome grab on the axles. I've been paying close attention. It definitely broadens your choices from the same old 78-79 Fords.

It's a great setup. We never argue about money. I'm not sure why people think they need to have a joint account - it seems like that is a great way to start arguments where none are needed.

[/QUOTE]
The 78-79's go for around $1500 up here assuming you can find one. Plus, you pretty much have to run them full width, and if you cut them down, you have to do both sides or your driveshaft runs right through your oil pan. The newer Ford axles are much better in that regard especially if you are going to cut the long side tube down.

I like the Falken A/T's but with all the talk I was expecting something a lot more epic with those M/Ts.. LOL. We'll see how they perform I guess.

He's had the Wildpeaks before. I'm not too excited about this new design either. Reminds me of a Cooper STT.

They look like they are going after the "hybrid" AT tire like the Duratrac and MTR. Pretty much what I'm looking for. I"m not sure I want to be the first in line to try them out especially if they are going to be as heavy as the AT. Also, I've read the AT's have issues with Raceline beadlocks and that's the wheel I'm probably going to run.

I just dropped $950 at rock auto for Centric loaded calipers and rotors front and rear and a full set of Moog ball joints. Big boy axles use big boy priced goodies.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to stretch the rear 4 inches to give it TJ openings. Probably go with Genright stretch corners unless someone else has a better idea.

My Barnes bumper shipped today.
