unclejunk told me to check out your project. He never said what it was. It's looking good though. And tall. Gotta bring that thing to an FTE meet and tower over the SD's unlike them towering over us.

thank you! it looks so goofy with those 33's haha. im liking the height, but for street use it might be a little too tall, ill have to see how it is with bigger tires. once i put a d60 up front, i might lower it a little.

The axle looks off centered in this pic, must be a weird angle



I probably missed it, what size tire do you plan on running?

( it could just be the picture though )

thank you! driving this around here in nh is going to be a little rough. i should be fine around my town which is all i really need it for. im going to try to pick up a cheap dd this summer.

thanks zack, yes it is pretty tall. if it wasnt built for mostly mudbogs, it wouldnt be as tall. and as for the axle not being centered, im not driving it yet, i just tossed the panhard in with eying the adjustment. everythings all center now.
