Nope. But then again, I know how to weld.

Its good for everything. Everything from Open High Speed Desert, to Black Diamond trails and everything inbetween. I have done it all with mine.

Probably the most publicised of them all is Sean's from ORR. There is a continuing build of it in Four Wheeler Magazine and on FourWheeler.com

http://www.fourwheeler.com/projectbu...nt_suspension/

He has had is truck from Glamis, to Pismo, to the open desert of Barstow and even the famous trails of Moab Utah.. and everywhere inbetween.



Over a year ago, but with the DBR front end.


This is that trail.


Between Sean and I, I think we have proved that the Dixon kit is a great all around offroad machine.

Oh and xp1ik99, feel free to post what ever photos you have of Seans rig.
