    Sweet- You sure don't care much about trail damage! If that 62 had been bobbed you might have squeezed through OK.

    What size tires are those? Gears?

    Looks like it was fun anyway!

    NICE Trip

    Looks like you had a great time giving the truck a workout! The damage just adds character! ;)

    I either had to take a hit or go home with my tail between my legs. And Rubens dad is a body guy. He had the dent banged out and the tail light back in later that day.

    Nice pics. I always love to see pics of guys who really wheel wagons. I'd like to see some more details of how your fenders are hacked out.

    Oh Yeah !!! You get my applause !! Great wheeling . :beer: :beer:


    But i also have a couple questions , with you front fender trimming have you still got the inner guard in place or you removed it ??

    Also how bad do the 39.5's rub under full lock and articulation?

    Keep up the good work..

    I love it! Just a few more questions.
    What steering mods have you made or are you planning on making?

    Besides the SOA setup, what else was done to the suspension? Are you on stock springs?

    Have you thought about Mark's Gears for the transfer case?

    Did I mention that I love it?

    I have the Marlin hy-steer and I'm gonna do a ram assist from Proffits.

    Besides SOA, there's shackle reversal, stock springs and long shackles for flex. custom shock mounts in the back and the bottom of the front, the top is the ford mount, Rancho 9000s.

    I don't think I'd get enough of a return for my money with Mark's Gears. I will most likely go another route.
