Nice! Good find.

Do you mind telling us where you got it from, and for what price?

Got it from a guy that flips and parts out explorers. He knows his ****. Sold it to me for $160!

For those of you who have done an expo swap.. do you wanna snap a pic of what you did with the leaf perches? I wanna cut mine off but I'm afraid ill screw up the perch/axle...

I'm going to leave my old perches on and weld the new ones on top. I don't know how I'm going to do the shock mounts. I'm amazed at how cheap they are. I got mine yesterday for $88. I had to pull it out myself, though.
