RE: AA1PR Longterm build
Cool

Looking forward to the transformation. Will you be sticking with the current BFGs or going with something larger?

Looks a lot nicer with the rear lifted! Not sure why GM made them with a butt dragging stance.

Looks awesome. I was pretty surprised by these things in stock trim. When I was working out in the Grand Canyon my driver had one bone stock and that thing went damn near everywhere in the canyon. Tons of really sketchy washes and she just kept pullin through.

thanks good to hear that as well

I seldom if never have to use 4LO, the autotrac works wonders, it engages as needed

last summer my friend Craig was getting stuck & after he moved through the area I went through it like it was dry pavement, boy was he surprised

RE: AA1PR Longterm build
decided it was time to go where I bought my tires almost 2 yrs ago, since the front 2 were going flat over the course of a week

those new rims I picked up last summer finally got installed to see if it would impact all the front end work or the alignment & it doesnt

moved the front tires onto them & then rotated to the back & the rears moved forward
[Image: 2015-01-31%2014.23.07.jpg]

now I need to refinish if possible the other 2 rims & all 4 centers caps, these are so much cleaner & brighter

on the old rims I told them to leave the sensors installed, these will become my spares

sadly one of the 2 new sensors wouldnt communicate with the rig, so they want me to come back on monday since they are ordering 2 new sensors & I dont have to pay until they get it all straightened out, now thats service after all my bad luck lately

not to give a sob sorry, but boy was I pissed a couple of days ago

ran into some bad luck, took it in for an alignment & the shop informs me that the 2 upper ball joints another shop was supposedly replaced last year never where done, so I had to get those replaced

the whole thing stunk to high heaven, was forced to pay $720 in advance (never had that happen, have you ?) then he insists that I come back next week to have the work done, so I insist he Bust his butt & get it done then

& then the alignment...its off when I leave & pulling hard towards the ditch

& then that shop owner yells at me when I asked him to fix the alignment since it was pulling really bad (never did before), he threw a temper tantrum throwing stuff, bi^%$ing that he lost $3000 in blood on my rig

so I left & paid another shop $70 to do it right, filed complaints with the BBB, states attorney & Visa

I so miss not being able to fix my own rigs anymore

& then today I decide to look at the bad locking lug nut he said he put in the center console, instead he forced the stripped one back onto t he stud & left the good one in the console
it was on so tight we could barely get it off with the help of a friend

I'm glad I took it to another shop, I think now he would have screwed something up just because he's an azzhat, who does that to a customer
