If anyone is interested in riding along. I'll have an empty seat. There's no way Char is going to be ready to be jarred around like that yet.

Oh, BTW. I blew a Swamper today driving down the road. For some reason the sidewall decided it needed to ventilate itself while I was doing about 50mph.

Right now I have my spare Goodyear MTR on there, but I'm going to need to do something more permanent before the run. I'm not having an easy time finding what I want at least not at the right price :(.

The Explorer rolled 4 or 5 times. But I drove out of it and all is well:D ;)

It's funny, it blew on a road with a high square edged curb next to me with a little frontage road just on the other side. So when I got it down to about 5MPH I popped the truck over the curb and parked it on the frontage road. And that was with the front right tire being dead flat :D

Big offroad tires kick butt! I feel safer getting a flat with a big offroad tire than with regular ones.

Time for some IROKs Rick???

So did you have the spare in back? Looks like you still don't have a rear bumper. Whats up with that anyway?

Naw IROK's are too skinny. Just wouldn't look right going back to a 12.5 wide.

<cough>37's</cough>

And thats a heck of a deal on 'em. . .even with shipping.

Finally got them on. Headed to Hollister on the 27th to play with them, and then off to the Hammers in April (14th - 18th). I need to trim some in the back to make them fit better.

They are *HUGE*. They dwarf the MTR's, even though both tires are supposed to be 35's. and the 13.50 width also helps.

I will take the jumpseat in the back Rick.
Its the only seat in your truck that I fit in, and its the smallest one!
I tried sitting in your passanger seat while the truck was at FST.
My head was hitting the roof and my feet would not fit in the space next to the roll bar.
Maybe we could get Samples and Matt to go.
I will ask on Saturday

I love that pic of the big a$$ truck and the little bottle jack.
I go the other way and use my high-lift on my Camry.
That way I don't have to bend over to change the tire, I just lift it up to me.
