    thanks guys. I'll be in Nebraska and South Dakota for about a month this winter and as crazy as it sounds, North Texas can get some shitty winter weather. I did a lot of sliding around on Mud Grapplers last winter so I'd rather be safe than sorry.


    op updated with new wheels.

    thanks guys. Kyle and I joke a lot on the other site about the similarities. If we're ever close to each other (location), we'd like to take pictures of the trucks together.
