i like it. how do you like those sport kings?
Pretty good, I think if they were siped it would make a big difference on road, not bad just not great on road. Go real good in over 4-5" snow! Drove it all last winter and almost half of this before it broke. Didn't have any problem as long as there was enough snow, squirrly if there is just a bit of snow though.
They were on it when I got it but I am thinking about sticking with the brand when I go bigger. Think 35" mud kings are under $150. For the price? Good tire, and wears pretty good too, I got around 10000 miles on them and don't notice any difference in the tread wear, have had the front end apart and never got it re-aligned either. How do the pics look?, Think I need a bigger garage? lol

Well the floor was just rotted in the corners, but as I got into it I foung ou t the whole cross member was rotten. Out it goes! ;D
As for the tires they are just sport kings, not mud kings, thinking about doing mud kings next, can't beat the price! (if they go big enough)

Rule of thumb i have for rust is this : Triple the area where you see the rust and that is what it will need patch wise to fix . this seems to be a pretty sure fire method for me anyhow . Almost always you have to cut out twice as much as you see it seems . Anyhow keep at it you will get it fixed soon for summer i bet .

Tried to go at least 1/2- 1" past it all the way around. I got all the rot, just gonna be some work to stop the surface rust thats left but had a couple spots that I couldn't cut any further.
As far as being fixed for summer, It would be nice but not something I am (realisticly) expecting. I got to do gears, bigger tires, wireing, re-do some of the body work on the sides, re-carpet the inside, etc, etc. All in a space that I can't open both doors at the same time! No room!
As it is now, I can walk down the drivers side to the front, and almost halfway down the pass side. (leaning on the wall for balance) It's a bit tight! ;D

Hell! wait till I get the "before" pics of the sides scanned! Some idiot before me used CONCRETE as body filler! Figure at LEAST a bag per side!
Thanx for the comments guys. It means a lot to me! ;D
