    I spent 3 hours lastnight on this site in :eek1:
    So this morning i asked the owner of the site if he could put a poll on the site to see what peeps thought was the biggest cluster &*@% here.
    He doesn't have time for that but said he didn't mind if i posted it on here.

    Before you vote think of this. The guy is driving the rig next to you on a double lane hiway doing 60 mph down a hill with only a guard rail to protect
    you and your family from going over the cliff when one of these works of art, breaks.

    I could only post 10, but it wasn't hard to pick them, actually any 10 would have worked. They are all classics.

    Which is the worst of the worst?

    That was tough. But I think 10 has the most chance of immediate failure without warning. Just my oppinion though. 6 is extremely scary as well though.

    incorrect spelling of the word "pole" should be poll
    and use of the word "peeps"

    So what you are telling me, is that when I used a ratchet strap to hold my draglink up, after it bent down to the axle tube while in a ditch, so that I could drive the truck an hour to my house, I should have taken a picture?

    The draglink in #10 isn't even connected to the tie-rod. at least the best I can tell.

    Also looks like he re-tubed a closed knuckle dana 60. Scary.

    # 5 looks to be a 73-87 too. bonus points for stacking the hollow tube for steering blocks.

    You know,

    It's this kinda crap that makes every truck owner who builds his rig right, with concern for safety, get a rap that is NOT deserved. You know, the "dumb a** redneck local yokal kind. All I wanna know is what friggin' state inspection station slapped a safety sticker on all 10 of those? Obviously, the inspecters and each rigs respective owners have no concern for others safety, let alone their own.

    Outside of that, this has got to be some of the funniest attempts at engineering I've ever seen! Do y'all work for Ford or for Dodge? Wait, I know...JEEP! :haha:

    Sheesh! Quick, someone get me a BEER!

    #3 is an idiot for not just sleeving the two pieces together.

    #4 It's got flattop knuckles for christ sakes. pay the money and do it right.

    #6 so much for taking a trip to the hardware store to get the right bolts.

    #7 At lest he triangulated the bracing.

    #9 think of the time and effort involved in rigging that. so much for u-joints.

    #10 HUH! the knuckles are there to use crossover. it would only help a tiny bit but it would be better then what he has. At least there is no front driveshaft, so I won't meet this guy on the trail and spend my whole day strapping him back to the trailer.

    I don't even know who to vote for.
