    I got a wild hair up my butt today and decided that I'm going to try to turn my Burb into a dually. Don't worry, I'll have changed my mind long before I can come up with the money to actually do anything towards these ends. Does anybody have any pics? I went looking, but came up empty. There is one on the movie "Twister". As a matter of fact, it is exactly what I'm looking at, except color. I just figure that I want to use the BUrb as a family hauler. trailer tower and the dual wheels would help with the stability I'm giving away with the lift and 35's. Its really all about the looks, but I've got to start coming up with something that sounds like good reasons or my wife will crap down her leg. I found a site tonight that sells spacers to run dually wheels on the front without haveing to buy a D60. The adapters cost $250 as opposed to the cost of a D60. Any thoughts? I have way too much time to think at work. Other option is finding a wrecked dually 4x4 and canabalizing the running gear. anyone know where there is one for free? Kenny?...Ryan?...Jeff?...Bueller?

    Troy... you dont wanna do that... I dont know exactly why yet... but I am almost 100% positive that you dont want to do that. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Besides that, I have no idea where to get dually running gear even close to "cheap", hell not even close to "affordable"

    Go hang out down at the SCCA races at PIR this summer there are quite a few down there. They pit crews use them to haul trailers and the crew around in they are the shiznit for that.

    When Jeff and me had our 'burb we thought about it and even located a dually rear end for it (in fact still know where a couple are) just coming up with the money for the glass rear fender for a 'burb is where we fell short. Its still a fun thought for us and we still talk about it.

    We know you T-roy you change your mind more then a woman does /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Bet yer wrong! :flipoff: /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif I'll bring the headers with me. Maybe even the compressor too. BTW..my 'lectrician buddy thinks it's the solenoid thingy's on the top of the motor. I rewired it exactly as we did at your house and he said I did it right. Still wacky how it fried. It DID run fer a few seconds before we shut it off /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif wacky...
    Anyway, see you Sat. with the headers and $$ /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Sounds like you guys are going to have waaaaaay too much fun. What is the thing with Mila-Beav? I realize that I'm a dork, but I don't get it?
    Fumes...What do you mean by that? I might have to get offended. I assume that you are saying something negative about the way I type, or talk, or think, or something...I just really wish I still drank sometimes. jk
