Thanks I appreciate it.. I cannot wait to get started, but I want to wheel this spring and summer and save my money and get things here and there that way when it comes time to do the mods I will be just that futher along..

Then I can tear mine down and sale off my axles, and tires and wheels and engine and trannie etc..

Got the regular sized one. I should've bought the mini though but each ball is like $25.

But, o well. The regular gets more surface area.

No more bump steer

Going against Trip's better judgment (just getting my gigs in while I can Trip) I went ahead and installed my new Drop Track Bar Bracket along with a new adj track bar. I picked up this unit from WF Vendor Absolute Offroad. Needless to say it worked as dedigned and NO MORE BUMP-STEER. Also took Jacks advice and centered the axle "nuts on". Also took Jerry's advice and ignored myself?

the STTs diameter is 1/2" more than my old BFG ATs had.
but they look smaller. perhaps i should have bought some 37s...

what air pressure is right for these tires on a 8.5" rim...?
