Nope, but I did finish photographing it. The sawzall is for something more...vertical.

Nope...they don't make one of those anymore. Way back in the before-time, they did...but now it's carrier-only. I'm hoping that they'll have one out to me early next week.

aside... can we still expect a comprehensive review on the Vanco Big Brake upgrade. I'm assuming they're still working fantastically but how about a demonstration (not sure if you've figured out how you'll pull that off... maybe some of that Witchcraft you spoke of)... just how well do they really work? Do you think it might be dangerous with only 31s?

I'm looking into my suspension lift and 35s so I'm wondering if I do this Big Brake upgrade before I lift the Jeep and run my 35s, am I asking for trouble (currently running the stock 245/75s)? I'm particularly concerned about the winter when I'm trying to avoid locking up my tires. How long did it take you to adjust your braking style?

Yes, you can expect a comprehensive review as well as answers to all of those questions that you asked.

While eating pistachios, and you come to an uncracked sealed one, is it to be tossed or bit open and eaten?

I had a different question earlier today, but now that I am home, I have forgotten it.
So you got my alternate, and slightly less important, question.
