can i ask one question please lol been dieing too but not on RPS, do you acully ever use your 4x4 ever? its just been a question i had for a while...lol...dont take it the wrong way. maybe you did maybe you didnt but ever think of like gutting the 4x4 stuff to take out the extra weight your not using and also not having to deal with binding up CV-shafts?

Actually. If your going to lay frame, and wish to eventually go to a coilover/bags.. why waste the time and effort dickin with TKeys. Just save the cash for now, your image can wait . Put that cash and effort into what your going to keep.
