AHH perfect haha lol Your right i need to wheel with that guy lol :)


Today the explorer got the 36s back. I also scored 3 tsl radials today for 25 bucks a piece. This is good for me. I now dont need new tires. I have one good tire on the explorer and 3 that are wore out. Now i have 3 ones that are at the same wear point that my good tire is at. Sweet deal but that means i have to keep the tsl radials for a little longer :(

I know i just couldnt pass them up. I didnt really like them and this is for sure the cheaper option. The business is eating all funds at the moment and this is my dd.

The new tires are going to go on next week. They were a steal. Im so excited that i got them.

I was going to retire the explorer from dd status and get a 07 super duty but im not ready for that kinda comitment. Im looking into the honda side of things. Anything with gas mileage and does not cost me 33 grand would be nice.

Tbars you know what i have been going through with the bearings not staying tight on the D44. You replaced your hubs and it worked for you. I started doing mine and it was also the ticket. I got the second one replaced and got a new tie rod end on the drivers side. Now the allingment can be done and i wont be wearing the tires like crazy anymore. Thanks for the heads up on that. I was going to replace the spindles first so now im happy that i got it fixed the cheapest way. The races for the bearings were moving inside the hub a good 1/8 to 1/4 a inch.....

Here is the new hub: you knock out the wheel studs and seperate the rotor and the hub.

I work almost every day. I do paperwork during the week trying to catch up on the last 6 months. I do get out for a few hours every night and spend time with friends to try to have a little of a personal life. Right now im creating nightly report sheets for myself....

Weekends are fully work.

I really need to wheel........:)
