Jim, I will let you know. The stock one is brand new with about 3 miles on it. once I get it on the road, I will take it to be looked at for a custom setup. I don't know what type of muffler I want yet. I need some type for inspection any suggestions anyone?

Randy

Philip, it will be 2 years in the spring.

David, its a used Bestop that I got from Jorge at a great price. It will do for now.. A few small rips but not a big deal. I have to get something to clean the windows though

Randy,

Looks great! What did you use for the donor vehicle and how do you plan to register it?

LOL, with the 4.11's you can easily light up the rear tires. I also don't have the front drive shaft in right now so it can peel out easy. All the power goes right to the rear munchkin tires...

Today, my wife pulled into out driveway and said that the truck looks weird from the back with the tires and wanted to know if I was going to get bigger ones too make it look cool.. I could not believe my ears..lol

LOL! You should have said yeah, I'm going to get some of those 24" spinners! And with only 1 driveshaft burnouts are easy, they are enev more eventful when you it's the rear shaft that is off.

cool. enough with the spinner talk, wolfe steels and some mud grips.. I think it would be amusing to see a D-90 smoking front and rear tires..

Every thing is looking good! But you are giving you defender a bad image with the pizza cutters; I mean you wouldn't take pictures of a 6' Strawberry blond Swimsuit model wearing a mumu now would you?
