I'll ask the guys at M.C. when I order the stinger. I have always liked the looks of a small to medium stinger. Not sure how practical they are, but I want one.

Hope to finish it all up tomorrow, including auxillary transmission cooler install.
Looks like you have some heat issues, glad you are not in Key West. Like the hood vents i need some and may try that idea.

Sad day....

Had to cancel the off roading trip to NC this weekend. Found out that the noise i heard when in 4wd was my front axel u-joints in combination with front driveshaft u-joints being worn out...also my rear driveshaft needs to be rebuilt too...like $700-1000 for the shop to fix it, although they did say they could have most done by tomorrow night so I could go on the trip....but I choose to scout junkyards and LKQ in the next few days and do all the work this weekend at my dads shop. Guess I should have replaced these a while back instead of going with the "fix it when it breaks" mentality

8:45pm, just scored 4x 33" duratracs on sim. Beadlocks for $550. Tires are about 50% tread. My 235/75s are about 85%, so I should be able to get a good chunk of my investment back

Very nice score on 33" bead locks....I missed out on 5 33x12.50x15 with 35% tread for like $125 the other day. Not great life left in them, but I probably could have gotten them for $100 and I think the owner was selling the black d-window rims with them too

I went with the extra clearance. I wanted to go with the ultra high but matt at UCF said I would have to do some tub clearancing with my bl since I have the auto. Either way its a huge improvement compared to stock
