      I loved the Discoverer LTs I had. For what they were and what I paid for them ($30) they were a great tire. But the tread was wearing down, there were gouges on some of the tread blocks, a bulge on the sidewall of one, and I ran over a razor blade by a car dealership and a piece of it got lost in the tread. A few people I know had the STTs and said they loved them, I talked to people who came in work when I saw them on their trucks, and the price was just too good to pass up on these. Going on an all day run this Saturday and the forecast calls for light showers in the morning so I'll see how they do and post up.

      Jack, if you saw a random 304-651-xxxx cell phone number on your caller ID from Saturday night, it was me. I finally bought another Explorer and I was on I77 on my way home from Cleveland with it. I was trying to get ahold of you to see if you went on the Jeep run to the Good Evening Ranch in Summersville over the weekend. I guess it's better that I didn't go though, the weather is supposed to be crappy here tomorrow, so I got a few little things done today. I'll post up some pics in a couple of days in my "Surprise! I'm BAAAAACK!" thread.

      I did see that number.. my phone vibrating actually woke me up. My sleep schedule has been way way off lately. I didnt have the money for the summersville thing, saving up for a car and tryin to get some things paid off. We'll deffinetly have to get together when you get your truck up and running.

      1984 Monte Carlo SS.. not a clone
      67K miles
      lock-up TH350 was replaced with non lock-up TH350 3spd trans
      feedback Quadra-Junk was replaced with older non-feedback style Rochester
      need to check block castings to see if motor is original G code 305
      true duals from the manifolds back
      interior is in great shape minus headliner and drivers seat
      no typical G-Body rust/rot on the rear frame, door bottoms, trunk seams, trunk floor
      body is in great shape with minor small dings
      original color was white.. was repainted poorly some time back, needs a fresh coat
      original GM am/fm stereo.. which is great cause I hate hacked up dashes
      wiring for the feedback carb was cut and bundled by the AC accumulator so that needs work
      replaced the leaking valve cover gaskets or lack there of the first day I had it home

      The car needs a little work.. nothing serious, just small things. Plans so far are to get the interior cleaned/finished, clean up the engine bay and dress it up slightly, fresh paint job, and look into a modest set of 16's or 17's. If the income allows for it there are some suspension and steering upgrades I'd like to tackle.

      So it looks like the Explorer is on the backburner so to say. Doesnt mean its getting parked for eternity though. I wheeled it hard halloween night and had a blast. But I'm not sure of how much more money I'm going to throw at it. I will prbly wait to re-gear but do need to get the rust situation taken care of before I dont have a truck left!

      Thats pretty cool. I always thought those looked pretty neat, even though I'm not much on GMs. So basically a restoration, with slight improvements where budget allows?

      yeah.. not a full resto, more of a 'freshening up' with some modern conveniences added

      Spend the entire day in Gilmer/Burnsville WV with some guys from the Jeep club im in. Wheeled the Explorer pretty hard.. finally had to be winched, twice, and pulled up a hill by another Jeep, then pulled the Jeep behind me up. Lots of steep hill climbs with loose soil, rock obstacles that I needed some winching to help navigate, and negotiations with trees led to an incredible day out on the trails. My co-pilot/spotter didnt get the camera out, we were too busy going 'oh crap' to all the obstacles we came up on. Hopefully some of the other guys got some pics and I'll copy em over.

      Nice pictures. What psi did you run in your tires. It makes a night and day difference wheeling on the rocks with my tires at 15 psi and compared to 40 psi on my bfg all terrains

      I got tired of hearing people say "if you were locked you would have crawled right through that" so I bought an Aussie locker off of a member on pirate for the rear of the Explorer today.
