    I would have to say, it is just another Jeep flying apart at the seems [​IMG]. On the cover of that mag, is the famous "Bump Dump" , notice how a Blazer seems to tame the mighty hill unlike its Jeep counterpart. Sorry Jeep guys, but kinda funny!!

    thats the nicest way to put it. I would just say jeeps suck and the k5's rule. That pic is a good comparison...still don't get the can thing.

    Well since I don't see any air born poodles, my guess is that it's a can of high temp grease... wouldn't mind seeing the poodle flying through the air though!!!

    Unfortunatly I have no idea what your talking about because with a subscription I get that area is white'd out for printing my address on it. Now while you got your mags handy...Check out the Chevy on page 108. Look at the kewl set up he did on the core supports with the springs. What are those valve springs????/ I dig it...I'm there! my core support bushings are toast time to upgrade!

    Hey grim even us subscribers can still see the can.. I can see it RIGHT under the white area. I can tell the barcode and stuff. Hey about them core support springs. What is that for? flex. I would think it would give then if it had springs in there like that.

    $9.97 for a year, I just renewed for three years for about $24. I think Fourwheeler and Off-Road are about the same.

    Re: anyone have the petersens\'s 4wheel and off road August issue? MSG.

    Well the frames get moving around a good bit on our trucks. that should get rid of some of the stress the frame puts on the body. I saw in one magazine a few months back on a truck that the guy put some rubber cones on the clip and locator cups. They showed one pic with about a 4 inch gap between the frame and the body when the truck was all twisted up. Thats to much because of fan clearence issues but a little extra give in that area would be nice like the guy did with the springs. On my 79 I have a dent a full 2 inches above the normal bumper hight where under max flex the bumper and body met.
