    Bumpstops make good..bumps. bumpy. Rear untouched.

    :Msg from the future:
    If you choose to have no suspension travel, the rear is less wild...I would not suggest riding the front bumps...

    185/65r14 x 1978 factory steel front.
    (Can't remember if there were *edit* there weren't *edit* bumpstops atp..I think not; no torsion in the bars fs fs)

    Used the 195/60r14 in back the eat a stack of magazines (pump the fenders, use heat, doesn't fold the lip as much I thought it might..definitely more of almost ruined bed side.)

    Got lots of stuck trying to get out of there, I was so stoked! Never had anything lowered
