    The tilt steerin' column from Summit Racing turned out to be pretty cheesy. So replacin' it with a top-of-the-line model from Flaming River. Can really tell the difference.

    And over at Signature Customs, the lil' doors are fixin' to get some paint. Smoothed over the key lock cylinder. Keys on half doors don't really make to much sense if you think about it.

    ^^^tire to wheel tire ratio meets @woody ‘s formula for perfection. Cool build Kowboy.

    (Now I’ll go back to my strict policy of reading, looking and liking)

    Thank you sir.

    She went out for a test drive today and then ended up on the lift to swap out the rear axle.

    Some of the parts and pieces in the big-ass wooden crate from Dynatrac were to convert the front ProRock60 to 8 lug like it should be.
