    Picked up a set of 285-75-16 Cooper ST's and got em mounted.

    As for the X-blade, broke off 3 bottom bar mounts for the bar that holds the bottom of the stainless skin in place, and had to replace the bar itself as well. also strengthened up some other welds that didnt look too great from the factory. Warning: crappy cell phone pics

    some other random welding pics from work

    Clock tower casting that ran cold, magnesium test fixture, aluminum heating element, and an ingot mold table i made out of scrap steel we had laying around

    Im 20 and a self taught welder so i know theyre not the best welds

    i have those tires, and they are amazing in the snow, just keep them rotated and they will wear fine if u dont they wear very quickly.
