(Yesterday) Bought some used 35s and wheels. All I need now is a lift.

(Today) Wife discovered a cash withdrawal on our bank account from yesterday's purchase. Used the wrong card. I'm in trouble.

Use the other card to make a cash withdrawal, deposit it for the same amount into the other account, claim a bank error. Been there.

Got rid of the Dick Cepek wheels and those god awful tires. Every 30 days I was back in for death wobble and a new balancing. Between those horrible wheels and oblong tires that wore very uneven I had no chance of curing DW! I was out by as much as 5 oz every 30 days. Horrible experience.

Put on Xtreme MT2s 31.5/10.5 15s on aluminum alloys. Got them out on the expressway twice. No DW. The first time over 45 mph in six months without DW. I almost cried.

Then I also put on set of truck lite LED headlights. Damn these things are great. I had been looking at every LED headlight I could find. These were the first light pattern that was worth a flip in my opinion. And since the price was will under 350 with the sale, well, no brainier for me!

I can't even tell you how funny this is. I can laugh as "been there, done that, have the t-shirt and the wall plaque along with the trophy."

I gush about those tires and wheels occasionally. The MTR fanbois will **** on you, but I think they are awesome. Buddy of mine recently dynamic balanced them for me (I have been running them since February) and they were very straight...1.25oz on inside only....except for one that I had noticeably damaged and/or may also have a nail in (didn't know about the slow leak at the time)

My friend and I Installed LED rear tail lights. We ended up having to zip tie the factory turn signals under the tube fenders in order to get the blinkers to work correctly. We also fixed my KC lites. A few of them weren't working. I still need to prime and paint all the bare metal.

Lol, I was going to ask what the hell she snooping for? .

That usually don't end well unless I catch her snooping before she finds what she's looking for

There was a lyric that come to mind, I'm not sure from where, but it stuck with me: "if you gotta seek so hard for the proof, it means that you probably won't like the truth"
