Finished the mule. Metal cloak control arms rock so far and the fenders are super nice.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to get. Wanted KM2s to match the spare I have, but really liked the looks of MTZs, and heard they were good tires. Also considered Toyos, which I found for a great price, but apparently they were on nationwide back order. Found some good prices online but called a local shop and they had the MTZs for a little bit better price than online, including mount/lifetime balance. Hopefully testing them this weekend on the rocks if the rain holds up.

OT: Just did an alignment. Don't want these tires wearing funky.

Bought a new trackbar and energy suspension poly bushing kit for it! Got it installed tonight and it dramatically improved my steering shimmy! Night and Day difference!

Made an offer to trade her off. Gotta say I miss my duramax more than I like the topless feeling.

Just curious what trackbar you got?

OT: put a new exhaust on tonight. Went with the MBRP S5500 black exhaust. Love the sound it produces, although it's not the same as my old dual flowmaster 40s I ran on my truck before.

Also had some LEDs sitting around from a different project so I made some DIY rock lights.

Dude almost smacked the car that was in front of me. Glad I moved...nobody's smacking my girl's big ol' booty except me!!

Sad thing is...he tried to let me back on the highway in front of him. No thanks, I'll stay behind where I can keep my eye on him... Pay attention to the road insted of your damn text message...FREAK!!
Great Save! And good call. I wouldn't trust that guy either.

Maybe the joints? Give them a call. They will be more than happy in telling you what it is waiting on
