The original 2 barrel decided to lose all the gasket and piss gas everwhere so in stead of rebuilding it i put a holley 650 and 360 intake manifold on it. It made a world of differnce. ill try to post a new pic of this weekend i tried my best to flex the heavy duty suspension. So yall can look at the new pic from the link above.

what do yall think of the flex pics. i know its not the greatest but pretty damn good for 6HD leaf 1900lbs springs in the front and 1 1/4 ton rear springs.

I would love to come to the meet in san antonio. But as you can tell from the picture i have street rated towing tires on the truck. i don't have any mud or all terrian tires right now and the truck isn't street legal i would have to tow it. So until i can get some meaty tire or some thing at least with tred im really limited on where i can wheel. im going to do the RCC front hangers and shackle this christmas and was thinking of getting hummer tires 36" on 16.5. Has any one used these tire and how to they do on trails and mud?

The den is easy, our first trip there I had bald 33's and had no problem. There is an easy go around on all tough areas.

I have the hummer tires, place in Houston sells them for 39 bucks a pop. They actually perform better then I thought, I was expecting them to suck since I am use to swampers and ground hawgs. But they did pretty well, my only gripe is they aren't wide enough for me. If they were I would keep them, but I will be moving to a bigger/wider tire eventually.
