    Stephanie,

    You should take a look at his truck up close. Everything on it was fabricated by Steve. He is very true when he said "Rock tested, Offroad abused". He tested all of these parts at Disney and they stand up to the abuse. Here I go promoting again... [​IMG]

    Frisbie, great job on the site! Can't wait to do some more "Testing". How about a Potosi run this fall?

    Hey... That's my truck and friends in the background of the main page picture. Hmm... CK5 discount? Those diff covers look pretty sweet. I wonder how much more oil they hold.

    Going down is easy, gravity is your friend. It's the coming up that provides the challenge. I don't think anyone that tried it suffered any except taking the paint off the rocker skids and bumpers as they punished the rocks.

    All the covers hold at least another quart of fluid over the stock version.

    Anything in the upper truss for the front?

    Something that ties the upper ball-joint, knuckle area, to the U-bolts, and all the way across to the other side? I know the oil pans in the way, and maybe even headers. But that passanger side tube needs some help. Any ideas?

    If you look at the front axle shot of my truck in four wheeler you can see the truss I built that is on the bottom but doesn't extend below the diff. I welded mine on but I am building a bolt on version that will be as strong. There are too many variables in building a bolt on over the top truss for the front.
