That'* why you either wheel with a buddy following in his rig, .....or have a wife like mine there'* not too much I can't fix on my Jeep with her help. H***, just the other week she changed a balljoint, wheel hub, and did the rear brakes herself.
Oh i've replaced the entire engine on my own, i just didn't have the tools to drop the tranny and replace the clutch that i turned into a birds nest of fiber pad crap... the parts where most of the cost... :(

New picture with the tires/wheels I picked up. I'm seeing an improvment in gas milage, and they ride 10x better than the 31'*. Picture was just taken, she'* really dirty due to record seting rainfall the last 2 days. Lots of standing water on the roads
