Well I know your hinges are solid without the slots in it. Might be able to just drill a round hole. Only reason mine is square is because of the slots.

Did a mid-winter powerwashing. Also, cleaned and polished my wheels for the rest of the season. Darn M/T wheels, wish the PO had taken better care of them . Atleast they look 10x better than when I got them.

Today.......

After much anxiety, and debate on what size.....I finally got tires! Upgraded from 30's to 31's The 30's were bald and no longer serviceable. I was originally going to go larger but all the excellent advice found on this site steered me away. (No lift....yet)

Went cheap.....Spector Advanta AT 31 x 10.5 x 15.... I'll be buying "real" tires in the summer (after wedding is paid off!!!)

Also installed a Garmin Nuvo GPS unit today

Gonna go try it out in Occotillo Wells tomorrow!!!!

Fixed my baby. Pushed the front axle over 3/4 of an inch and adjusted my track bar. Put my stock pitman arm back in and fixed my toe-in.

Good bye terrible steering and hello proper return to center!

I took out my NP231 4wd switch and multi-meter tested it to make sure it was broken. It was, so I ordered a new one and put the old one back in until the new one arrives.

Got rid of the the tailgate hinges and smoothed out the tailgate. I plan hinge it on the inside, not sure if it'll swing down or open the same way. What do you guys think?
