New TREs swapped in. I have 3/4" heims on hand, but need 7/8"s. Ordered 7/8" heims from McMaster-Carr.
Gotta love McMaster-Carr's blistering fast shipping!

The list on this round of preventative maintenance keep on growing...
-All 4 TREs
-Track Bar Heims
-Steering Box Sector Shaft need adjusted
-both wheel U-Joints (Spicer 5-760X)

Anyone have 15x10 wheels laying around to sell? Doesn’t need to be pretty.

I can’t realistically make 15x8 wheels to work. Dropped to 8psi and shoulders still have tits on them.

there is a reason no one will ever have 10" wide 15" wheels

because running 10" wide wheels with a 12.50 tire is silly
