I noticed one of your door handles sticks out.

I do live in Tennessee and my neck does get red in the summer, hahaha. A stray cat spent the night in my hummer and left me a gift that kept on giving. :oops: (thats kinda redneck too) So I took out some cloth seats to clean them and hadn't put them back in yet.

I got spoiled with the fat tires. On heavy duty rigs with GSA's , the GSAs look like bike tires now. Even the MT/R's in the first shot look a bit slender.

I had a mechanic look at the doors. Theyr'e better but not perfect. Mechanic did as the 'door handle fix' suggests. I suspect someone tried my doors while they were locked. Something odd was happening to my Driver's door too. It sags making the latch hit high on the peg attached to the frame. Looks like something is wonky at the bottom hinge.

Thanks!!

I noticed you like red, is the Porsche red too?

Hi Barton man.

My rims are listed as being 9.5 inches wide. My tire calls for a 10 inch or more wide wheel. I reason since beadlocks hold a wheel much better than an ordinary rim I can afford to be half an inch under the spec.

The tires are 14.02 inches wide :D

I need some wider rims then. I have the stock Al wheels with 38.5 x 15 Boggers and they dont look that wide. Your truck has a nice stance.

You have boggers? That rocks! I was thinking of getting a set but theyr'e offroad only unless you like replacing tires often.

I believe cepek's beadlock and simulock is the widest rim you can buy made just for the H1. Your'e better off with H1 specific wheels they save your hardware like tie rods etc.

Im not seeing a 38.5 tire that is fifteen inches wide, perhaps its a newer style.
