    Need some pit crew? I see your suburban hovering with no rear axle every time I go out to my new shop, btw.

    It has an axle now! Just need to get home (currently working out of state) and put the brakes on and bleed them.

    I think I have a full ride for this one. Just take whatever wheeler you have able to go!

    Update:

    Burb survived the Gambler 500. Did great actually. Cruised 75mph down the highway, hit all the sandy trails, and cruised back to Detroit. Only damage was sand in everything and my rear brake shoes getting 50% wiped out on their first voyage. My friends riding in the back had leg room for days and we had plenty of space for gear, cooler, snacks, etc.

    The Smittybuilt 9500 saved my ass 4 times. One pull was especially bad and I had to double the cable with a snatch block. I twisted the harbor freight trailer hitch mount plate so I'm adding a brace to that so it doesn't happen again. Still, for the money, I'm impressed with that winch mount plate.

    I jumped at a deal on Goodyear MTR 37x12.50x16.5 surplus tires on FB marketplace and ordered some 16.5x8.25 pro comp black steel wheels from 4wd (6 lug). This will be the largest size tire I plan on running with the stock front 10 bolt axle.

    I will re-work the back tire carrier to support a single 37 on the driver side and probably 2 gas cans and a water can on the passenger side.

    I also picked up some box steel to replace my rockers and add some protection for the body. Starting that project once I get my removable trailer fenders done.

    That sand did get everywhere. The burban looks a bit tall for 35s. I bet 37s will be just right.

    37's are looking good. I need to trim the front fenders for flexing.

    Next steps are to re-work the tire carrier for a single 37" and I picked up some 2x6 box tubing to make rocker-slider things.
