Re: An even more traitorous vehicle

Yes I'm using dually wheels.

I got one side done tonight, I'll take pics in the morning. Its a slow process because the rims I "acquired" are from a Chevy and I am having to grind the center hole on the rims a little bit bigger.

Re: An even more traitorous vehicle

The bed on it is just over 8ft already, and it would take another 6ft minimum to fit the Jeep on it. I'm perfectly hapy using the trailer.


I traded the Durango straight across for it. All said and done I've got about 3,500$ into both the truck and the trailer.

Re: An even more traitorous vehicle

I've got about 8K$ into the Jeep, give or take. Its kind of hard to keep track of a 1.5yrs of buying and selling various parts. But yes, between everything I managed to sell or trade off of it I'm positive I've managed to keep it under the 10K$ mark.

Wait until you see the picture of it tomorrow with dually conversion don eon the driver's side. It looks amazingly better.

Re: An even more traitorous vehicle

That flatbed is fairly similar to mine and thats exactly where I'm going to be putting my stack. Actually, thats about the same stack I think I'm going to get, but I don't want a polished one. I'll be going with a black finish.

Ok....... and when did you get a tow rig????? Fess up!



I gotta say that's a great tow rig Dutch. Ford or not, it was cheap and will definitely more than fit the bill.

....... Ya might wanna get the other wiper arm on there though.....
