    345/75-16 bfg km2

    If anyone is looking for a set of these for their 80, the Discount Tire on MacArthur in Valley Ranch has 3 of them in stock and can get a 4th. Seems that when they ordered me a spare, they put in 4 instead of 1 on the order. :doh: Took a month to get a set of 4 and 6 months for a spare.

    Looking for shop space

    Since it now appears that my employment here in the Dallas area is likely to continue (as least for the near future) I need to find some shop space for my toys.
