What did you do to your GMT today?

Trailblazer and Envoy related, but not off-road related...

New rims and tires look sweet Hardtrailz! Does the rim have more negative offset? Looks like the tires are sticking out a little more than before.

They are back to the offset of my black chrome ones. I like this better as at full lock I do not hit the frame at all anymore. I think it changed from 12 to -6

It only happened in parking lots at full lock so it was not a big deal really, but annoyed me cause i hate rubbing.

Oh yeah I definitely understand that. I did my trimming immediately to stop the rubbing I was getting when I got my new rims, but I'm not at the frame rubbing stage yet! Maybe one day soon once I get my 4.10s in the front and rear differential though

Oh yeah, that and I'm buying a new diff cover for it. I wasn't expecting it to be rust free though... and the differential under my tb now doesn't look any better anyway haha... Gotta love how much salt they put down in Maine :facepalm:

I have spares. Going to be in Indy Saturday so I can bring one down if you want. Shouldn't your to do list include a condenser as well?

I got a few spare disco's. Couple in pieces and couple whole, but not sure on condition. I got one from the SS I just got the spare 4.10 diff from that looks good.

I do need to do the condenser, but never think about AC with it being cold!

New air cleaner (Fram) and 2 new low beam bulbs, Phillips X-treme vision, which don't seem to be as "white" as the GE Nighthawks, one of which failed when I got a little too aggressive on logging road washboard Sunday afternoon.

Got the P0014 code. Debating if its worth cleaning or just swap out the part. Been 80K miles since I put one in.
