I installed my 50 inch LED bar last night. Looks bitchen!

The whistle this morning on the commute to work however was really like what another member had described it as a "ghost from the Grudge is following you everywhere you go (over 40mph)". Going to Home Depot on my lunch to get door insulation and hopefully it chases the damn ghost away!

How'd the fix go. Mine whistles at exactly 20 mph, which is the speed through my neighborhood...and then stops till about 55. Looking for a good fix.

well it was about time

fitted the hutchinsons 17s with mickey thompsons's 37s on stock suspension before it goes in for re-gearing, 2 new drivelines, drag link flip, stinger bumper & rock slider installs at offroad evolution on monday

getting some rubbing in the rear on dips but made it all the way home from work. gotta do it a few more times but it seems to be able to handle the 37s on stock suspension so far





senior tech DERICHSWEILER working the mount, balance and double bead-locking of the hutchinsons.
