Yup, does look good! So what's the issue with the swampers in the snow?

No siping so no traction on slick surfaces. Mud tires suck in the rain and snow in my experience.

I think the 90 is jealous that I'm spending time on the 110!

The biggest issue was that the truck would start sliding to the left or the right and would require steering input in the opposite direction...then the truck would stop sliding and would start moving rapidly in the direction of the steering wheel causing me to have to steer in the opposite way again.

Just an odd tank-slappery feeling It's not so bad when alone on the road, but with other cars passing by, I was a bit concerned that I would accidentally hit them.

Mike, that looks cool as hell open top like that. Love it. Hope all is well in Georgia!

Things are great here, although the weather has been strange this year. If you were still here we could build the bumper you want.

Hope the budget cuts don't affect you too much. I spent all that time in GA around you all and never had free time to do any of this stuff, sad. I did take your advice on headlamps and got the Trucklite Phase 7s finally.

Mounted new KM2s to new tubeless wolfs... Ready to mount up to the truck in a few days. First 110-related actions in a year! Feels good

Very nice. 255s? Curious - where did you score the white wolfs? Did they come that way or did you have them painted? Is the backside of the wolfs white, or black? I've heard the genuine NATO takeoffs are actually black on the back.

Wait so is the back of the wolf rims (the inside) black, and the face of them is white?

Rear lights prewired and ready to get integrated into the old harness.



Josh, totally forgot about the wipers, I'll consider doing it later if I can do it with modified or used parts.

From what I could see appears to be the entire Td5 dash, not just the center binnacle.
