Im thinking the im gonna have to put some tires on the Bii, and a dualed dumped exhaust (as short as i can make it)... gotta keep it halfway street legal. Maybe a winch somewhere down the line.

are thows A/T's your running now? winch sound's good it look's like it can handle it's own. you running any kind of locker? if not might think about welding the front or rear up. i think Phillipi welded his front might want to ask him about it if your needing some extra traction.

why are you selling your rig????

Yeah those are Cooper Discoveries on there now... I was selling it because i was frustrated with all the recent things going wrong with it but its not forsale anymore i just havent got around to taking that off cardomain. Im not running any lockers, the drive train is all stock, Im running 345 gears in it now. Wish i had the 373's though.

is it a daily driver or just something to play with? either way i would go with a good set of tires (swamper, bogger, mtr, etc), and weld up the rear/ front which ever you prefer. you can go al ong way and have fun without a winch. just my $.02

As of right now it will be a daily driver for a month or so, just enough time to get my gas saver up and going then its all offroad from there. I might just weld up the front, but that will be a while. I was looking at the cheap tires the other day and noticed the LTB's. How well do these tires preform (offroad only)??

dont know much about the LTB's but they look like they're as agressive as a TSL and i love swamper so might be a good choice. what size you looking to run?

I was looking to run maybe 33's if i can fit 35's but im not sure about the axles handling it. They might cause im not much of a climber it see's a lot more mud than climbing any thing. Ive been told im not to hard on it so it should hold some what. But if the axle ends up taking a crap, thats just another reason to go ahead and do the SAS swap. Does anyone know anything about the LTB's??

Phillipi, how much you want for the gears and 3rd??
