    Thanks for the input. @jynx I have been looking at a way to go the keyed on/off route, but I'm just not 100% sure where to get the hot power from - this is originally why I hoped the electric choke wires would work. I am slow at a lot of things, but electrical is especially bad. Preferably, I'll end up with a non-dedicated direct to battery switch. I've done a little research and have a couple of potential solutions that I still need to scope out.

    @TeddyBoy I'll be running two tanks - I had hoped for a cooler custom location, but they both ended up in the bed.

    Nope but the "extreme" is awful tempting. They're currently in hiding until I can get the ballz up to bring them home. I had grand thoughts of stripping them down and re painting but damn that's a lot of bolts.

    Not me. I think I'm going to run my current tires for around town/street duty and I'll use the new kicks to chase the 40s.

    If you wife is anything like mine she'll barely notice.

    Shes gotten used to me going to Johns every Saturday so occasionally this give me the opportunity to pick up parts w/o her noticing. My last set I ran to the other side of Chattanooga one Saturday and dragged them home that afternoon. Pulled down the driveway and quickly ran them around the side of the house before she ever saw them. Next day I had mounted up, few weeks later she asked me if I'd gotten new tires, I said "Nope, same old set" and never heard another word.

    @jynx they're 36x13.5 but look big because they're on 15" rims. @TeddyBoy can keep his 40s and use all his leds to see when he's under his rig repairing his axles :flipoff2:.

    OH DA**,

    I think @tgreco just busted the he## out of your balls @TeddyBoy.

    I am really looking forward to Golden Mountain now. I just hope someone doesn't receive a Golden Shower.

    Nice tires @tgreco..........By the way I just left your wife a message, saying how great it is that she supports your wheelin habit by buying you them there tires and wheels.

    @TeddyBoy @FJCcrawler Don't worry, it was the only thing on my Xmas list for the wife. It was an easy sell because I could guilt trip her into it. Although with that said, she really just doesn't want to get stuck with 3 kids by herself.
