LOL- I'll take the hook up my brother. No problem on not wanting to drive the beast- my panels are all still straight .......

Tony- hope you are refering to your wife - I saw your shots you used to sell the 90.

You could get her to shoot you a new avatar photo as an example of her work before you pimp her out....just a thought.

Now with alloys fitted. Turned out that the back ones fit right on, for the front I just had to remove the lockwashers on the hub bolts (and yes, I did use threadlocker). Sequentially tightened the lugs 2 turns at a time and they went right on. I do need to find another one of those wheels, whatever they're called (anyone?). Will swap the gy MTs onto those wheels asap.

I've measured the front of the 110 vs the 90 and it appears that I'll need 3" HD springs to even the truck out and support the SG bumper and heavy warn.

SG bumper and winch are now on, the new springs are here but not installed. Also installed are the tdi stickers on the sides which I'm stupidly giddy over.
