    I think Cooper makes a good range of tires in very good quality for the price. Currently running Discoverer AT3's on mine

    Been a hot minute, had quite a few things happen since the last update!
    Pulled the axles. This is the only easy way to move a 14FF.

    Got the frame setup and acid etched.

    Then spent many hours coating it.

    I then spent a bunch of time doing some other things - had my great uncle pass away, the Black Fox started making a ticking sound that ended up with a failing cam/lifter which was ripped apart and replaced, and bought a 46k mile 06 GMC K3500 SLT Duramax/Allison truck.... Among thanksgiving and two trips back to back. Progress has slowed a little but I should be back at it soon. More details on the other endeavors are in my Black Fox thread.

    Since the weather has been crap, I've been travelling to visit out of area friends, as well as prepping the 98 for sale (which sold on 1/31). In that time I was able to blast the axles, and then started tearing them down. Soon they will get coated and re-assembled.
