Not much room left. My neighbors probably think I’m stealing cars or something. I have 6 cars at my house plus the trailer. I have room for a couple more behind the gate and behind the lift if necessary. Luckily Roberts truck will be out soon and I need to replace the serpentine belt on the jeep so I can take it back to my parents house. The stock belt is too long with the PSC pump kit so I had to find a smaller belt. Hoping the one I picked up is gonna work.

For the first time in over a year and a half I got to work on the BeerRunner again. I forgot how beat to shit and dirty this thing was. Gonna need to spend some time really cleaning it up and getting it ready for this next phase.

It's pretty beat to shit. Not sure it would be worth putting on your vehicle.
Nothing a rattle can can't fix, and it's probably better than the rusted through chrome crap that's on there now lol

You looking for machined or black Walker beadlocks? Here’s some 17” black finish with 6x6.5 TT bolt pattern qty 5

Ideally I’d want a machined or polished finish but would be happy with any color. I’d just get them sand blasted and power coated a color I like.

These aren’t super expensive but also not that cheap either. Wonder if I could get him down to $1500.

Kinda what I was thinking on price. Worth a shot!

Put my deposit down on some race hubs yesterday. Since I’m keeping 4wd I wanted an option for locking hubs. Most hubs that you find from companies like Camburg or BMS are either 2wd front hubs or rear hubs that are would always be engaged if I used them for the front. I also didn’t want to just go with stock D44 hubs because I know with the abuse I plan to put this truck through those small hubs would not hold up long. My goal for this build is to build it reliable enough to comfortably do Baja trips or longer desert trips without worries about little things that could ruin a trip.

Well since I committed to the 6x6.5” lug pattern I had to get some wheels to match.
Picked up some trophy truck take offs with some 39” BFG’s already mounted. Has me thinking I should just skip 37’s and go straight to 39’s lol.
It’s a lot more weight but the only weak point I’ll have left will be the 7.5” front diff. Hoping if I take it easy in the rocks, I can keep the front diff alive for a while. Still not set on jumping to 39’s but might do some mocking up with them for the meantime.
