man that rig looks pretty stout, i like the longer wheel base. i want to do something simular to mine some day since it no longer is a daily driver because of gas priceses.

and yah, doesnt the TBI need like 195* to 205* to run properly ?

LOOKS GREAT!

Wow man, nice rig. Don't think I've ever heard of moving the front springs outward. Hmmmmmm. Nice work, and welcome. :beer:

Noticed the Volcom sticker, you skate?

ya the perches on the 44 are wider, so i moved the springs out to meet the perches, this is also needed becuase like the 60, the 44 has one perch cast into the side of the pumpkin..... i could have left the springs alone if i had cut the axle down..

i used to skate..... between work, the little lady, the cruiser and being lazy, i haven't for quite a while...you?

i love the longer wheel base... planning on tackling some of the steeper climbs at moab like white knuckle hill, high dive, the escalator... i love the WB, but i dont like how my back fenders look.. i have some buddies with sheet metal equipment.. planning on making a "blank" rear quarter and using my FJ fender flares and cutting out a new, moved back, wheel well.....

i will have to check into the temps, but it's deffinatly a little cooler than i would like, it's not even really warm enough to make the heater of any value...
