can't use 1/8" plexi? Need to swap it out pretty often from the wipers but at least it's cheap

or just use the one you bought for the time being, one crack down the middle ain't bad

really havent done much on the truck as its just been sitting in the back yard under a tarp and been raining non stop. did get some obs fenders and hood back on it. now has 2 different shade of red fenders and a grey hood, think i need a blue or white box to really finish the look off



went out for a easy trail ride on sunday with some stock rigs. really like the bfgs as truck runs so smooth and spent all day in 2wd and just flying down the trails. having no windshield is not as bad as i was expecting but it was also a really nice day out. only down side is when hit a water hole you can watch the water go up then you drive right into it and get soaked

after last weekend i noticed that the truck was pushing some oil and smoking, knew it was using oil but was just keeping an eye on it. when i had the motor apart i seen some scoring on few cylinders but getting it machined was not in the budget so put it back together. waiting to hear back from the machine shop on what it would be to build my short block. to hold me over for now i went up a heat range with my plugs to burn it off and dumped in some 10w60 synthetic oil and ran it hard this weekend and way better.

went and ran one of the better trails around our parts and truck did well. never believed people when the said stickies suck in snow but i very much believe that now. they worked great till we hit snow and ice and then i was just sliding all over the place and even wound up off the trail at one point

pics













on the way back down the mountain i was hauling ass as was cold and just wanted to get back to camp. wasnt paying attention and clipped a tree with the pass side head light. so my "new" front clip is a little messed up, think i can bend it back close to shape

They are almost like memory foam. Very reactive to temperature. Really soft when warm, but really hard when cold.

yep they brought the suck for sure, even when i got on the throttle when stuck and got them hot. part way through the day i dropped air pressure and they got a little better but still not great. guess ill just have to get the beadlocks done and mount the 44 tsl as snow wheeling time is almost here
