Just realized those tires would match the rears on Red.

Definitely get those tires. They'll look sick and the price is hard to beat for brand new rubber.

Oh yeah, I'm definitely gonna try and get a pair. I'm also thinking about making some heavy duty steering knuckles, but I'll get more into detail about that once I go to do it.

If you're making those steering knuckles, why not go with a bigger spindle? You could go with 1" spindles and just have to change the bushings in the rim. Just an idea, lol

Yeah I dont know, my rims have actual bearings in them so I'd have to get new ones. I'll probably just re-use my 3/4" bolts. Might as well not have 1" spindles if I have 3/4" axle shafs hahaha.

Thanks Creepy, cool to see you posting on here! Hahaha. I hope I can get a pair of those sometime soon.

On another note I think I need to add a couple crossmembers in the frame around the axle area, it seems like it's flexing quite a bit and that why the bumper looks bent in this picture.



The rest of the frame seems fine so I think it's just that area around the axle. Shouldn't be too hard to fix, I'll just add in a couple of angle steel cross members and see if that cures 'er.

Frame flex sucks! Lol, hope you get it figured out.

You actually use the guard and handle on your angle grinder? That's kinda odd to me, I've never had one with those

Yeah I'm hoping the ol' angle steel will get it fixed up.

Haha, yeah I always keep both on. If I didnt have the guard on and a disc ever exploded, which they do sometimes, it would tear up my hand most likely. Also I try to keep the handle on especially with the cutting wheel, cuz they tend to catch sometimes.
