Thanks everyone! I also forgot to mention the LED'* flash with the blinkers which is really cool. I wired them into the parking light/blinker and didn't even plan for that to happen but it looks so sweet at night!

After the Gibson Exhaust gets here, I've been looking at getting a Volant Intake for it, but think I will make my own since I did that with my bonne, and I would rather spend $60 making one than $260 buying one.... then after that a good Tune and she should scoot pretty good for a 6 cyl.. yesterday I found out it had the G80 locking differential on it which is a rare option I guess and also has 3.73 gears too..instead of the crappy 3.42'* that come standard...so that was some nice icing on the cake and it helped explained why this one feels quicker off the line than my '06 was.

Gotta say raptor660...after I keep looking at the pictures you posted and seeing your buddies wheels on the same color TB as mine, I think I have made up my mind. I am going to go with those. Since this TB is a 2wd though I think I will go the Sport Tire route...I can't have a TB that I know looks like someone elses!

yea we take his off road alot... We have these hillclimbs we take our quads up and we decided to take his TB up it. starts steep then at the top is almost vertical. about 30 feet tall. then going down he can stop on the steepest part with out sliding much. he got those rims for $50 each from a rim shop. not sure how

Can you maybe find out where he got them? That is about $80 a piece less than what I am able to get them for!! Do you know if it is the correct offset for the TB..or does he have spacers with a different bolt pattern?
