Re: Opinions on Full Width ... Daily Driver
Thank's for the advise.. totaly understand where you are coming from... as a daily driver I would have NEVER put in a spool.. not for the road manners but for tire wear, and driveline wear.. you are totaly taking life off your tires and drive line.. that's my opinion atleast I would have saved up for an ARB or a Detroit.. not that a detroit is PERFECT for the tires..
While attending college I am lucky enough to have it near by so that I can still live at home... seing as my brother has his jeep as a 2nd vehicle, and we have/had (just sold the other extra vehicle today actualy) we have extra vehicles around...
Not to mention I`m barrowing my girlfriends car as a daily driver right now during the buildup, and until my brother's car is out of the shop..
As far as getting a ride for any downtime I have that covered..
I actualy prefer to stay away from the mud and or water as much as possible! I like the rocks and trails myself (non mud filled ..unlike pipeline)
I just didn't see a reason to go from 35" Tires and a Dana35 to 33" tires and keep the week axles and worry about it...
I`d rather build the rig into a capable wheeler, and then save up for a daily driver, suhc as a Geo or a Kia, probably a Kia with one of there 100,000 mile warrantys or a nice Toy Pickup something that will last FOREVER!
That's my outlook on the whole thing...
.. after reading your post I still didn't read aynthing about how you think full widths will work with a daily driver.. but hey I guess you had more info for me in the long run [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Oh, and I`m gonna rig up something like your fender hood :P Maybe not so goofy [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
