You can't imagine the crap I've caught to do what I've done. I have a dedicated crawler, but this truck is my daily driver. I wouldn't hesitate to drive my truck there in back, but I would much rather put wear and tear on much cheaper street tires than my very hard to find kevlars. My tow rig is an 04' CTD. The trailer is your typical 18' dovetail hauler. The 60/14 wheel/tire combo is too wide to not drive over my fenders. They aren't stout enough to be driving over them, so I'll build my own. If we can convince everyone to leave their tow rig at the house, I will as well. Won't bother me a bit. Here's mine. Just finished the rear shock brackets today. Progress slows at times, but she's pretty close.


Your a fucking idiot. It's one thing to have the money to throw away. It's another to go to the bank, borrow it, then throwit away.

I have to agree, thats not balls. Thats stupidity.

It does take balls to wheel a rig the bank owns though

I borrowed ten thousand. In six months, I've paid five thousand of it back. Will have the other five repaid in less than two months. I have eight vehicles, 100 acres, and a nice house....all which are paid off. The only thing I owe on are my student loans and the rest of the loan on this truck. That's what working 60-80 hours a week can do. This has been a nice thread til a few of you douche bags drop in. It's of no one's concern but mine what I do with my money.

Well, they certainly got my age wrong. I'm 27, and they listed 23. Maybe that's the case with others as well.

Wow, they must have been scraping the bottom of the barrel for these? just kidding, I have to say I this years prospects seem to be up a notch over last year. I like almost all of them. I like the ranger because I am a pick up guy. Like the Bronco, becuase how can you not? The guys who have posted Hereford reasons already stated. Glad I don't have to decide! Good luck guys!

I am telling you guys, it will be a 6x6! That is the only thing I can think of that has not been done to a jk. Why else would they cut the rear frame as well as the body?
