Cheers , still not to your quality .....

As for the tyres ...the Sticky Treps are the best tyre I have driven on ......leave the blue label krawlers for dead ......they have so much more grip that I could break rear cruiser axles with ease with the little 1.6L .....so I now have some chromo rears ......I never had an axle issue running the BFG (blue's)

It was your opinion .....and the Price on the treps here in OZ that swayed me to buy them ....although I still liked the look of the BFG's on the rig over the treps ...but hey when you can drive so much more shite you dont worry about that crap

Thanks, its cool to see you move to the stickies, I have broken 2 chromoly stub shafts since the switch. Just wait until you get them broken in and take the sharp corners off.... mine just keep getting better!

my rig is for sale BTW

The Treps really do start to grip much better after they get worn in.. this is my second set and I still need to groove the drivers side...
