      Must be the front axle right? ;)

      They'll be 255's (33x10x16) but yeah, they're coming someday, as funds allow

      You bastard... how'd you change my Elite registry? :p:

      Section made that pic of me about 2-3 years ago... If you notice its a pic of me under my old Sport. He musta used his powers to change my elite registry. There was another pic that I posted of me and my ex-gf and Section photo-cropped.. lemme see if I can find it.

      EDIT: Here's the thread: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=82547

      Good times: Section I hate you, LoL :p:

      Here's the original pic from the thread:
