    Euro Mount work on a soggy Sunday afternoon. It is not my deer. I am helping out a friends relative. This buck was taken in a eastern Massachusetts town with a bow. The man heads in before sunrise and sits until dark; all to avoid abutting residents.

    He more than earned this buck.

    As of 8PM the skull is now in the whitening phase.

    Leave my rifle, my fishing pole, my traps, and leave me be.

    The more I work on it, the more I want to bring this truck on a moose hunt October 2018.

    Added 35” Swamper Boggers with 10” wide steel wheels to it today. It’s going to take a lot of Beaver pelts to pay for these.

    That's a nice truck, I used to have lifted truck also. I had big tires on it, but took them off and put 38's on.

    Longbow.... did you drive that all the way to Maine? If so, you must have got an economical 8 FEET per gallon?

    outdoorsman.... "your daughters truck" is coming together awesome. Did you bring the rims and tires to a shop to be balanced after mounting them yourself?

    Yeah all the way to Maine I don’t remember how many times I had to stop but I think my dad was paying for the gas that trip. LOL. I do remember him saying that his back and kidneys hurt from bouncing around in the truck LOL it was pretty stiff!

    I did not. Balancing those tires are a giant PITA. I’m going to run them as is and if they turn out to be too far unbalanced I’ll buy some dynamic balancing beads and dump the beads into the rims.

    Longbow, Did you have to modify driveline angles to achieve that much lift out of the Ford?

    I'm not versed at all in "wrench twisting". Is there a reason that you won't bring them to Stratham tire or a store like that to have them balanced? I would think those are damn expensive tires. I'd be scared to death of a chop in them. I've been pricing tires for my Jeep..... Holy sheep shat they are expensive!!!
