Could very likely have been the beginning of the end.

If anyone wants pictures direct - e-mail me. Its in my signature line. I probably know name and rig, but as my mind is getting old, just be kind and remind me.

Wow, Tom! Nice!!! It looks like the day turned out pretty good, after all!!!

Those are exactly like mine, though 3" wider. FWIW, I had to go to 17" wheels to get the tire off the TRE when I ditched the spacers. 4.5" backspacing with no spacers make steering *lots* easier!

If you're in any of these photos and you'd like a high-resolution file, just shoot me a message with your truck description and your email address, and I'll send it over right away.

I will, I am sure I will need some help

Was going to but the bad omens had started already, forgot the keys at home. Went to Scotts' house at 20th and Union then was going to pick up the trailer but............well.......

Tom, what on earth happened? I don't see anything that you would have climbed up to tip you over on? Did the runner just get sleepy and fall over for a nap?
Steering was all messed up and continued to turn right on top of the rock to the left of the picture. It is a sharp right with a tilt to the left and yes the Habenero was tired or was that me
