Bought a set of Freestyles from Carl/Manimal/Tiktaalik earlier this year. Prepped & painted them, & today swapped the tyres over. I like it! Rest of the rig looks bad because 1) the 2014 doors don't match the 1985 paint, 2) the roof rack is off because the rig won't fit in the garage with it on, and 3) I pulled the A-bar off to paint it & mount it on the MOD bumper I bought.

Work in progress!

duly noted

haven't actually driven without the spare on there (waiting on brake light switch to arrive), so I will take it for a spin once I have brake lights again before issuing a verdict

and some will say you'll get better fuel mileage to boot, having a bonnet mounted spare

I wonder if there's a market for "fake" bonnet spare tires, made of plastic and rubber. Could weigh 5 lbs and still give the poser look.

I always thought that a "fake" spare with a hinged lid would make a good storage spot for recovery gear...

I'm not familiar yet, but couldn't bonnet spares be made to mount upside down (i.e. bolts down with rim bucket up?) Then, a decent amount of gear could be dumped into the backside rim dish and a cheapo plastic disco spare disc bolted to cover it all? Or go all classy with a full vinyl spare cover? Just an idear ;-)

very productive -

on the rear cones - i ended up just retaining the springs on the top and bottom at the rear - no issues this last weekend.

Mine were "fab'd" but these are nice and easy to do

or cones and a bottom retainer

Thanks Rob, you know these things are a never-ending work in progress.

Your trailer turned out well...I especially liked the clown art gallery feature. You need to acquire a JW Gacey original to round out your collection.

Took off the front and rear sway bars off the 90. Put dislocation cones on the rear. Bleed the brakes and filled up with fresh Castrol DOT 4. Getting ready for wintergreen...
