I feel for you too Isaac, I'm kinda in the same boat but luckily I wasn't in the middle of a build project. I think you made the right decision and you're showing maturity and patience by putting off a dream in order to stabilize your finances now.

I like the 5-star wheels

I am there also....

After 2 28k wheeling vehicles, plus adding mods..I am running thin on wife empathy for this latest 100 series project.

Keeping the peace at the homestead is way more important then the rig we wheel, the art is working the deal so all are happy. When you figure that out, please share...

Marco, you still looking for tires? Not sure what I'm doing with mine yet, but I may be selling them. Brand new MTR's.

This is why my truck sits next to the garage unless we go to the mall. This is why I have only gone fishing 3 times in 6 years. But my does enjoy the classic car scene especially since it doesn't bother her MS. As stated before..."If momma aint happy..."

In the meantime, I will keep the truck and all the fly fishing equipment. I will just keep adding to the parts pile and the fly box!

Wish I would have known but respect your decision. I could have cut you a good deal on a nearly done project.

A rich man has a good woman, a good gun, a good dog and some good boots, you have to choose carefully.

Your new truck looks nice! You should be able to have lots of fun with that ride, and you can slowly customize it to be worthy of the AxleIke legacy.

Thanks all. I sold some parts today, and its been a crappy feeling day all around. Good to start recouping losses, but bad to see it start to go away.
