IM in a GREAT MOOD!!! Im gonna post a new thread. bwahahahahaha

you know those raffles at theme parks and malls, enter to win a car (mercedes, bmw or porsche), 49k cash, 1,500 shopping spree or $500.. Yea, guess who just got a call from one of those companies... yourss truly! Im guaranteed atleast one of them, lets hope its not the stupid $500 lol

Oh, and if i go to New Braunfuls next Thursday and take a 90 minute tour im guaranteed a Vacation to Orlando, Vegas or a 5 day cruise to the bahamas for 2.
that is funking sweet, and who cares if it is 500 bucks, that is still 500 bucks. but a new porsche would be better.

If you have a new fuKKing porsche when I go to the meet you better give me that aussie haha

and casey, like matt said, with minimal distraction, and air tools, im willing to bet we can have that front end lifted in a couple hours. start in the morning when its kool and just kick its ***. done by 2 or 3 max without any major complications. just bring some pb blaster, a BFH, and we can rely on matts air tools to do alot of the work.


dont forget to get ubolts if we do those 63s. and let me know if you want em so i dont forget em. lol
I need to learn the multiple quote thing, anyway

you bet your *** on the whole beer situation. We work hard, then we play even harder on me haha

its one of the time share deals.. but the way i see it is, its an hour and a half of my life, wtf else am i gonna be doing? posting on RF? Guaranteed $500 cash minimum, and a guaranteed vacation from which i think i'll be taking a cruise on spring break next year (if they don't restrict certain dates) so why not cruise on down to New Braunfuls, hell they're sending me a $40 gift card to cover gas.

click the little box between "quote" and "report" for every post you want to reply to, then click "quote" on the last one you want to reply to, or just some random one and delete what you dont want.

bring the gears and crossmembers and ill meet you in nb if you want.


yea if i drink while we work on the truck, it aint gettin done. i will drink a monster or something before we start working so i will stay focused and br driven to get er done. the sooner we get it done, the more time we have to play and go test that sucker out.


casey, when i put my superlift on, i left my stock DS on. it worked for a few months to wheel the crap out of. its just that the angle kills that little wannabe birfield joint in there. anyway, so if you want to test it out, we can hook that sucker up and see how she flexes. or we can just take mine or and put it on your truck for a couple hours and play around.

we will tackle that when the time is right.

I'm going to search around for a DS, see if I can find a good deal on a Superlift shaft or get a custom one, have to do some reading on that since it has been awhile since I looked that up

call up Austin Drive Train, now know as Inland truck parts & service, I got quoted at $350 for a custom front ds with a cv joint.

512-454-1488

dunno what they would say about the funky *** pattern on the t-case. Kevan might be able to make another adapter like the one on my truck if you ask really nice.
