Upgrading is a PIA.

Have patience and it'll get done.
Heck milo I wasn't even upgrading. I was just fixing!

LOL. Rhonda, fixing is upgrading. You need to find a decent local mechanic.

Just slap the 33s and run them for your commute to work. You'll rub but it will get you by for a week. Or just drive your explorer.

Heck that is only a 1/2 inch closer to the flares. I thought you had like 29's on there. Use the wheels that will push out the tires farther from the brakes. About 3 3/4 of an inch from the lip on the back of the wheel to the flat surface where the wheel studs go thru and the wheel touches the brakes. Does that make sense?

I don't think so' fixing is fixing! Upgrading is getting cooler stuff! Seals and barring and breaks and a damn headache is not upgrading and there are no mechanics up here that are with a shoot or don't want a million $! Except my tire guy that doesn't do that stuff

I'm a canine handler with an explosives detection canine. I have a yellow lab named Samson. I'll check out the special... Love working with my partner!

Yeah your only going to make a 1 inch jump. You split that measurement to 1/2 inch per side and that is what you cut "IF" you need to. If your not rubbing now your going to a 1 inch narrower tire and it may just work without the lift.

Your doing really good Rhonda. I have been dealing with my Ex. Her husband is stage 4 liver cancer. I was suppose to be there today in AZ to pick up my grandson but now she changed her mind twice. Feel sorry for them though he does not have very long to live.

It was all confusing at first cause the other shop gave me a diagram for a Dana 35. I guess I don't have that. The ex told me find another one cause it wasn't right. Mini sent me a photo with all the things on it and said find the one I have. It matches the 44. So after the whole thing was already apart and the fluid was emptied he had to take off the tires and said new breaks needed. Yay and they needed pressed yay

That's awesome! If I could choose careers over I would do something with dogs. Instead I just own them, or should I say they own me. My 3 run the place, I just pay the mortgage, feed them and clean up after them

The special had a couple really interesting things that I never knew about the training. It may be stuff you already know, but it was neat to watch.

We think our Mocha dog would have been a good search & rescue dog. He gets so focused on a task that he won't stop and can't be distracted until it's complete. He's our 3 yr. Choc. Lab, his persistence has caused me to come very close to ending his life on a couple occasions

I always wanted a Choc. Lab named Samson that I could call Sammy for short. But when I finally got one the name Leo just came to mind right away. It just fit him and has served him well for 7 years. Plus my yellow Lab is Lily and it sounds cute with Leo, lol.

D44 is awesome. D44/D30 is sweet. Great wheeling combo for reliability. If it did not rub too hard then I'm betting you will only rub the same due to the narrower tire.
