Been a while since I've updated this. The transmission finally crapped out, so I had to get it rebuilt. It ended up taking them an extra day than they said, so I didn't get it back til the day after the show, so obviously my truck wasn't in it.

I just now got finished ordering my new tires and wheels from the new shop I work at. I'll have them as soon as I can pick them up...
-37x12.50r17 BFG Mud Terrains
-17x9 Moto Metal 951 in black (same ones I said I was going to get before).
I've also got a few more things for my system so I'll be installing all of that stuff soon as well. Pics to come soon.

Well, two that are still above the wear bars (have about 15% tread left) I'm selling as spares, and the other two are down to the wear bars (ones almost completely bald).
