    I know someone wanted to see how much grinding is done on a D60 caliper for a 15 inch. I now have pictures and will email if anyone wants them. Also, rig is still going, new 39.5's on now and she looks good. Got soft top in today, going on tomorrow. Hydro boost now in too. Hope to drive her soon. Waitin on crossover drag link. Third phase is doubler, new shafts, trans. She is at http://coloradok5.com/gallery/Schimdt4 How do you make that clickable?

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    6" front springs w/ ORD HD shackles (1/2") , 2 rear w/ 4 inch shackle plus revolver shacle (1/2") and 3 body. I really like the extra clearance between frame and running gear and body with the 3 inch, but I am probably backing down to 1 inch. I wasn't going to, but now it looks like I will have to cut the fenders again to clear the width of the boggers in full flex, so go down to 1 inch body and get all the cuttin done. Still not sure, but planning on running doubler and Steve makes good points about hassle to come up with a dual shifter boot that will fit with the extra through on the levers for being 2 inches lower. It is going together good, but many lesson learned, and slower than I would like.

    Check the FAQ page for all sorts of cool toys and how to use them...for now this is how you make a clicky link...

    Now replace "{" and "}" with "[" and "]" and it'll look like this <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/gallery/Schimdt4>http://coloradok5.com/gallery/Schimdt4</a>

    It is in his album and it is the same picture I posted for you on the other thread. I couldn't remember where it originally came from but it's TheGeneral.
