Mr. Sawzall & fender flares and lack of caring.. Honestly though, alot of the 2nd gen sports, like BenS are able to run 35s simply by trimming some sheet metal.

That's about what I suspected. I'll stick to an attempt to get 33s under. Awesome truck Doug, you make me jealous.

Doug & Jeff came to an agreement that Jeff would repair the truck while Doug was deployed overseas for, I believe, the 1354 manual transfer case. Unfortunately its still not fixed and Doug hasn't been able to pick it up. Doug if I fly to Tx, can I keep it? :D :D

Yes I have an atlas. One of these day's I'll pick up my truck but Jeff's and I schedules have been crazy and I haven't been able to pick my truck up yet. I put the atlas in before I deployed but Jeff is getting the driveshafts made for me. I'm hoping to pick my truck up at the end of the month, hopefully my driveshafts will be ready. I'd really like to do some wheeling this summer, it's been a LONG time since I've done any real wheeling. I really appreciate Jeff watching my truck while I've been gone. While I hope to get my truck back soon unfortunantly I'm deploying again to Iraq in November so I won't be able to enjoy it for to long. I hope to wheel the shit out of it this summer and get my jolly's before I deploy again for 15 months (thanks SecDef).

We're going to a part of this big push into Baghdad. The funny part is we already have our Cav battalion deployed, and one of the infantry battalion is also deploying soon. There is only going to be one infantry battalion left for the rest of us to deploy with. I'm in a light infantry unit and thats what we do, we deploy. :\
