I'll do it. I could do this in my sleep now. Just fly me down there and by the end of the day you will be driving it.

Yeah you've sas'd like 12 rangers though so you don't count. I want a 7" grinder now though, I did all that with a 4.5".......I officially never want to grind anything ever again now.

its great isnt it? did you do it with a face shield? i just go at it with a hat on backwards and a pair of safety glasses. kinda sucks when my arms and face/neck are all red and spotted up from burning pieces of metal though. lol

a 7" grinder will wear your arms out in no time but eats through all kinds of stuff in no time.

Backwards hat and safety glasses FTW. I wore my welding gloves though, I had a cutoff wheel break apart and hit me in the thumb once, I've always worn my gloves since that happened.

Why aren't you going to Midland this year? As soon as I'm done with this thing I'm going to Carlsbad, then hopefully Midland, but I'm pretty sure Carlsbad is the closest place with 'trails' instead of just an area with a bunch of junk to climb lol.

Girlfriend can't come up with the money. Who knows maybe I'll have enough extra cash to surprise her but I doubt it.

yeah, good trails around here are hard to come by. Katemcy is probably the closest decent offroading. There is a park or ranch around Juno. Satan's Playground

The owners are opening a new park a few miles from the old one in February! I'll be there, you should hop in with Ryan and come out for the weekend.

Small update. Hit the frame with a flap disc for a final cleanup before I start welding. Nothing big, but I should start putting stuff on pretty quick now. Still need my brackets from ballistic.....might be a while....

you have the caster set the wrong way...

positive caster and the axle tips towards the back of the truck not to the front. assuming you are setting it there. aka upper ball joint is behind the lower. (like steering in the air not the ground

No its just sitting there, I don't even have the axle centered yet. I just stuck it under there and threw the angle finder on it but then I got tired and came inside lol.

BTW Zach, what did you do about the 'bump' in the frame where the steering box is going to go? Just plate over it or did you flatten it out somehow?

i just plated over it, on both sides.. then drilled up to a 3/4" hole through both pieces of 1/4" plate and both frame rails to put a piece of .75" DOM in. that had to be the ****tiest part of the whole sas lol.

i went to the ER twice in my class, atleast one of the times i was wearing safety glasses AND a face shield. i blame the face shield.

All the time at home i feel metal chunks hit my eye and places around my eye behind the glasses.. I always wear glasses, getting metal out of your eye ****ing sucks.
