on photobucket, upload a photo.

hit share

click links

copy the [img]***********[/img] code onto here in the comment box.

it will appear like so


OR, take the URL/address of the pic, and add [img] to the front and [/img] to the end. these are image tags that the website recognizes to display an image. the first one means "begin image address" and the slash on the second one means "end of image address" to the website.

Ya IM pretty excited to get it all set up and go wheeling, have one of 3 a arm 4x4s with custom kits. Help keep a smooth steerable ride with the ifs and still get flex, not like a sas but it'll be fun to wheel for sure

Long travel, but I'll keep it midtravel for now with the coilovers I have. I should pull at least 8". Need to find a way to protect those from mud and all that

IM building slowly...when I want to go all the way it'll be easy, shock hoops, longer coilovers and the cross brace. That and it only pulls 12" unless I want to dump alot into custom axles

IM thinking McNeil. I like the look of the fenders you have...there's just something about McQueen a glass I don't like completely, but I may wait to do them till 33" tires next January. I don't wanna have glass and 31s, probably look horrible

That and the money is needed so my wife can Finish classes so she can get accepted to the nursing program next spring
