Not sure on why the tires look bigger. Might be the angle of the shot, like you said. I actually think my tires look too small now with the front flares installed.
That m&g sounds like something I would definitely be up for. We can tackle a few projects on peoples rigs and all pitch in for the meat and stuff. Oh and don't mention bears around my wifes, she just pictures cute and adorable, not mean and hungry.
Oh by the way since its not on the info, names Ruben.
Our Bears aren't real mean, but definately hungry. They will just about do anything to get to food. I have had a few of them come into the garage while I was working on the Jeep. They simply looked over at me, gave a little grunt and then just straight to the trash can. Didn't even bother them that I was right there in the garage with them. A few bangs with my wrench on something metal and me yelling at them usually scares them off. I will start planning for a nice m&g/wrenching/wheeling thing for the summer. Right now we have about 3-4" of snow on the ground so camping and a b-b-q may be a little cold.
