I take it there are no fender flare/mudflap nazis in your neck of the asphalt playground?

Re: Since some wanted an update...

well I've kept my mouth shut for most of this here gimmick, but I'd like to say "outstanding work sir" it appears to be a well built care and I'm glad to see you took tim in building it rather than just welding every damn thing toigether. and i also like the aesthetic nature of the bed. good work mr payne

Re: Since some wanted an update...

Yeah they were, but after finding out how rare they actually are in that size and how un-economical it would be to put that heavy of a tire on that heavy of a truck I'm going to run them on the buggy which will have the axles to easily handle them and more.

Re: Since some wanted an update...

Looking at those grooved TSLs... the center section doesn't look much like a TSL. Are they worn enough where you're actually cutting into the carcass?

I'm curious to know how much grooving the big outer lugs and splitting the inner lugs helps with heat.
