  1. Decided to start breaking down the from 589’s. Went to start the truck to do the whole park on the 2x6 again and…. Click click click. Battery is completely gone. Good thing that tax refund hit this week. Sigh.
  2. So I took part of your advice, I’m selling the tires and keeping the rims. Spent more time with the tire irons yesterday knocking the rear tires off the rims. Gonna put that cash towards, I don’t know tools, gun parts, something. Truck needs a battery and wipers, and a door lock fixed too. There’s always something to fix. I think I’m gonna break down the two front Titan 589’s too, keep those rims and toss the tires. That way I’ll have a full set of spare rims if I ever fine the deal of the century on another set of tires. And then I’m gonna throw the tire tools in the creek out back.
  3. Yea, that’s true. They won’t cost me anything stacked up in the corner of the shop I guess.
  4. So what you’re saying is, with 12” rims and the 24x10-12 size being common, there’s no real reason to hang on to the 11” rims?
  5. Out of curiosity, what is a common 12” rear tire size? Thinking about selling the mud lites and 11” rear rims, but looking to the future for replacement tires, what would be a common tire size? 24x10-12 to match the 24x8-12 fronts? I’ll probably just stay with 25’s from now on, but just curious.
  6. It’s a 2002 Toyota RAV4, 4 cylinder auto. I put a new radiator in it and then immediately after it started blowing motor oil from where the transmission and motor bolt together. It’s front wheel drive, so it’s mounted sideways. I can see where oil is pooled up but not sure where it’s coming from. Maybe a sensor is leaking.
  7. Tires for the truck. The sipper may be down for the count, blowing oil out from somewhere. Yea I know what tire threads do to undies around here….. kinda why I wanna start one…..
  8. I’ll take a look at it, thank you! This has been on the back burner for a bit, had my gas sipper break down on me and the truck has to have tires to pass this year’s inspection so I’ve been dealing with those issues….. might start a tire thread for the truck lol. The good news is my effort seems to have paid off, the Bridgestones have been leak free as far as I can tell, and look great in my opinion.
  9. That does look great, but I don’t think it would work well with red lol. I’m gonna check that thread out for tips.
  10. Yes, I’m a glutton for punishment lol. I think silver paint will be the best, easiest way. I was just entertaining the idea of black wheels. I really wish I could sell the mud lites and put that money towards something else, but I can’t sell them in good faith knowing they don’t hold air well.
  11. I think I’m just gonna paint the rears silver. Not a fan of black wheels in general, and after looking at these in the daylight, I like the silver better.
  12. What’s the general opinion, black rims or silver? Started thinking about mounting the front tires on the black wheels and leaving at that.
  13. Yea, about the same odds for both hahaha.
  14. Thanks for the links, those are much better prices. I like the concept of the 424, but I can appreciate the simplicity of full time 4x4. I can also appreciate the clean looks of the 400AT route. Decisions decisions. Maybe one day I’ll actually ride the thing more than I work on it.
  15. Well, at $170 a new one is out of the question. Just kicking the idea around for now, but the 400AT mod looks appealing too.
