WE beadlocks and Krawlers are on

I finally had time to put the wheels and tires together and get them on for Moab next month. I'll have some action shots after that.

No, the front was about 3/4" higher after the axle perches were made, but same springs all around and the rear perches are stock height.

I wanna see you bend those things now

Hey, how about running some trails here in CO before you head to Moab? Right now it looks like I might make it to the rallye, but wanna run some trails with you here in CO incase I can't make it the rallye

Hey, you still have your old wheels?

That sounds great, check the pirate board there is a thread I started there about running some CO trails before the event. What do you think about Independence on Monday or Tuesday?

Yes, but I am holding on to them as road tires...you can actually see wear on the Krawlers(Red label) from driving them down the road just a few miles.

Hey how about another set of beadlocks for the road. Just so you don't miss your WE beadlocks when thwy are off

Hmm It been a while since I've been on Pirate and I don't think I have an account. Anyway, Indy sounds like a plan. Monday sounds good too

OK, I'll touch base with you before I head out. I'll likely stop in and see Troy for a bit if he can get more than 15 minutes off of work . Maybe we can hook up then and just head down to the Springs.

37s

Wow!!! Those are cool! Is it me or the D90 just seems to get bigger as you put bigger tires. It doesn't seem to loose the proportion, at least up to 37s. I mean, I see Jeeps and the bigger the tires you put, the body tend to shrink more and more.

Are they set at the same pressure? It looks like there is 1" difference. Are you gonna sipe or groove the Krawlers?
