    This is my way to say THANK YOU to Wes (thatK30guy). I have been dealing with Wes for a few weeks to get a set of rears for my Jimmy. Well it turns out I will not buy them from him because he found me a set close enough that I can pick them up. The rears are the same and so is the price, the only differance is I don't have to pay shipping which would have been $175. Anyone who thinks Wes is doing this for the money is wrong. He is a great guy to deal with and I feel that he is looking out for everyone else too. He saw the post for the rears and sent me a private to let me know about them, so that is $500 he did not put in his pocket but into someone elses. I know this is not the place for this kind of post but I wanted everyone to know that Wes is a great guy. So once again THANK YOU WES!!!

    Hey Wayne... You score those 4.10 3/4 axles from bablazer? I got some frt axle shafts coming from him. If you did that is a KA deal! Wish I could of found that when I was looking... wouldn't be spending all this time going through em.

    Wes definetly seems like a great guy IMO. From a few nights this weekend in chat (after I got home from going out... so like 1 am or so my time haha) He has been there... kinda cool cause have never really chatted... Kinda get a feel better for people personalities. I just wonder when Wes is gonna convert to Morman... run off to Utah w/ the old lady and steph [​IMG] LMAO!!!! Ok.. I'll shut up now before she comes and hits me hahaa.

    Here here! Three cheers for Wes! [​IMG]

    Not many people will sacrifice personal gain for another's benefit. Nice to see that there are still those who will.

    I have goose bumps reading everybody's kind comments!!! [​IMG] I have told the guys I have dealt with, that I am doing this purely for enjoyment. The money part is not a factor. I understand each and every one of you guys when it comes to "wanting to build the ultimate" rig. For most of us, that is limited to us because of the funds. So, to be fair for everybody, I try to help out the best way I can! For some stuff I have given away for nothing and still paid the shipping cost, some of you are wondering "WTF?". Its only money, and money that no one really needs. Its also only a couple dollars, so WHOOPEE!!! Nothing like the feeling of making someone else happy, especially when they are having trouble with their rigs, whether it be parts or when they are broken down. In other words, treat someone like you would want them to treat you. I can only hope you guys will do the same for me when the time ever comes! [​IMG]

I look foward to meeting wayne and hope we can get together when my truck finally gets done. 1 big happy family!

    Thats K30 (a.k.a. Wes) for ya, allways gives you something to talk about. From what I know of him this guy is awesome, and VERY funny to boot! Keep it up Wes. Too bad your in Kansas, and not in Washington.

    Althow, I don't know how he keeps from drowning, since his mind is in the gutter so much. [​IMG] Just kidding-

    For those that don't know, yes I am getting the rears from Henry (bablazer73). I called him today and was expecting it to be a 10 minute call. Spent about 5 minutes talking about the rears and an hour just talking about our projects and other stuff. Needless to say I am looking forward to meeting him in person. I can't say enough how much I like this site and the people in it, so for all the newbies on here you can see just the type of people that are on here. I guess first off we all need to thank Steve for such a great site, and everyone else for being such great people. So Steve if you read this post I am sure I speak for alot of us when I say THANK YOU!!!!!! And once again Wes THANK YOU!!!!! I just wish I could talk you into moving to the East coast.

    [​IMG] LOL!!! Me, president?!?! Dont go that far!!! [​IMG] But if I were, then you guys would have my personal guarantee that ALL orv parks and sites and trails would STAY OPEN!!! Also, no state would have all those stupid lift laws!!! California would be free to modify and do what ever they want to their vehicles and not worry about emissions!!! But again, thats a far fetched story of me to be president!!!! LOL [​IMG]
