    I got no money but it's burning a hole in my pocket. I'm not sure what to do next. I want full exhaust (new speed engineering long tubes, current magnaflow dumped) and buy rear shocks and install all four but it's cold and winter so that's probably not gonna happen for a bit.

    I'm hoping my wheels came off backorder. I'm gonna look after I post this.

    I'm also thinking about getting rid of my hids cause I can't find better housings that I won't blind everybody else like I currently do.

    I considered those but I'm not sure how leds will handle the cold. Cause as I'm sure you know it can get quite cold in the Midwest

    Yeah someone told me they won't melt ice off a lens or whatever, but my RZR has LED headlights and it hasn't been an issue yet.

    Guess I'm a Thot lmao. I run on that stuff


    So I got a "new" grille that was peeling behind the factory grille inserts and I had some inserts I was intending on using eventually.

    So here it is after the first wash since probably October

    I'm thinking a 285 bfg all terrain. Only real appealing tire that comes to mind besides the now discontinued cooper stt

    I hate All Terrains lol. Really hate them.

    Why not an ST Maxx or something similar?

    They last almost forever lol.

    I'm picky on tread pattern and I haven't looked around that much yet. There's a huge swap meet in April that a tire dealer gives nice discounts so I'm kinda waiting to see what they have

    I am also, but more for ability than looks. I like open patterns with some kind of sidewall bite to them.

    My Kanati's have been great so far, on Pigpen and now on Clifford, pretty cheap too, like under 700 shipped.

    Duratracs I have on my FJ, they are ok, but the price has gone through the roof lately.

    I had over 60k (probably could squeeze another 5-10k if I wanted to) on my Falken Wildpeaks and hooked up better than my BFG A/Ts in the rain. They were also great in the desert.

    I just put the Toyo A/T IIs on a couple months ago and so far so good. The BFG is a softer tire and I have heard the mileage isn't all that great unless you stay on top of the rotate/balance/ alignments

    No real updates.

    I got my muffler and tips but haven't found a shop I'm willing to trust to do it right. Today I replaced the belt cause it tends to squeak when it's damp outside. Turned out that isn't the problem. So later this week I'll buy a new idler and tension as they seem kinda wore. I also took some time to trim the fan shroud as it hit my CAI.

    Think it was the original belt coated in conditioner.
