We're dealing with a generation of people that genuinely have never heard of the badassery of Micky Thompson tires.

The combo looks great!

well got a lil progress done today, not much tho. finaly working with both hands again even tho its slow, had carpal tunnel done back to back on both hands.



gota 9inch from the junk row and started to rip it apart then remembered yall like progress photos lol



I was goin to sandblast and paint the housing but when I flipped it over I discovered this on the back. that's probably ben on there for 20+ years so ill leave it



got'r torn down and ready for the power washer. ill sandblast the backing plates and order new axle bearings, brakes , hardware and wheel cylenders sometime in the next couple days



took the diff outa the box and found out it wasn't a Detroit locker like the box said but instead was a tru-track. idk mabe sometime along the way I had both and put this one in the box and used the locker for something else. anyways took the spool out and put this one in. I should get a pic of how close the other axles was to snappin after aprox 30,000 miles of street driving with the spool lol lets just say the splines arnt strait anymore
