Default Test Drive is done!!

Alright so from the beginning almost fully stock FSJ Cherokee Chief...
Test Drive is done!!-dsc01819.jpg

Then after a few months of me in school and weekends working on TANK he was ready for a road test/trip..
Test Drive is done!!-dsc01850.jpg

27 Gallons of gas
2 Quarts of oil
4 Hours and 15 minutes later I finally arrived at the Destination. Out east in B.F.E, TexASS
with no problems


3 Days and night of non-stop rain and PLENTY OF RED CLAY I almost Sunk Mr. Tank In a stock tank that we made last summer.


2 Weeks later.....

We were on the way back.
Me being so kind I bought dinner at the Dairy Queen for us all and then on the road again.

Now NOT EVEN 5 F***ING MINUTES LATER I BLEW OUT THE SIDE WALL OF MY LEFT REAR TIRE!!!!!!!
And towing almost 2 tons in a 6300lbs tank when a tire blows is kindda obvious......
and this used tire I got for $33 got me the last 173 miles back homeTest Drive is done!!-dsc01854.jpg

I think it was a good test what do you guys think?
I will upload the pic of the tire when I get home tomorrow.
