Steering works great, suspension works great, it was a good day /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif Got a little ding on the door thats pretty frickin cool lookin /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    If you look at the above pic you can see the chunk of concrete on the right side, I attempted to drive up and over it with the left front and as I got to the top it gave way and flipped over and hit the door:

    You can see in this pic where the concrete is not laying upside down on the ground, made for a kick ass battle scar!

    In that first shot it looks like the tire is fixin to hit the coil over. Is it? Oh by the way, I think that think is just about the coolest thing runnin. Can't wait to see what you're gonna do with the front. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif Good luck to ya in the future.

    Ya, I like that stockish in front but beyond built in the back. Kinda like a mullet hair cut on a truck. Business in the front - party in the back

    Looks good /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Lol yep, I threw them in the back seat, they kept falling out of the "bed" /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    On the coilover, the axle is sitting 2.5" left of center right now since I've been too lazy to align the thing, takes all of 20 minutes but still don't want to do it... Theres like 4.5" of clearance on the left side but only .5" on the right /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    And Steve, headed to the hammers April 23rd, should make for an interesting time /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
