    Got to love this show. Discussing axles today. So as they are thoroughly discussing the "Dana 70" I look over and realize he is talking about a 10.25" Sterling rear axle out of a Ford :doah:Discussing its 10.75" ring gear and other features...

    That show pretty much blows ass anymore. Even their "low budget" projects are so far off the cost scale that they are a joke.........

    yeah, no ****...what the hell was that one rig they built with 10bolts front and rear on 46's...i remember them saying...some **** about a budget built, but spend the mulah for the claws on an axle, then run some used, true budget tires... a realistic budget would involve running a way smaller/balder/mis-matched tires than you want to since you don't have teh money.

    i will admit, the show is better than "truck universe" how gay is that

    what ever happened to superlifts show with that girl host with the HUMUNGUS meat balloons???? now that was entertaining. :)

    Yeah, he kept pointing at the 14sf and saying it had the 10.5" ring gear but you didnt want it because of the c clip axles.


    Nobody does budget builds really, remember Petersons "budget" UA rig with the $5k Ramjet? Sponsors give them products for free to mention the name, so it is budget to them, but not to us. I almost coughed up my cereal when they told the price on the Mickey Thompsons on the bottom drawer thing. At least they kept the rest of it low priced.

    I'd still rather watch that than Trucks. Today they once again stuck a cold air intake and an exhaust on a new truck and programmed it. :rolleyes: Then they stuck a blower on it.

    Trucks and Truck Universe are sooper ghey but that Superlift's mildly retarded big tittied biatch and her close-to-as-stupid sister got on my nerves in a bad way, plus they were semi-butterfaces.

    IAN is a douche bag! He passsed over the D70 pretty much saying it was too big for anything useful, but goes on and on about shaving the 14 bolt down.

    What a dried up stinky dich licker!

    Sure we could've built up a junk yard dana60 and had a great axle but that would meen we'd actually have to work so instead we will buy a $5K dynatrac pro rock.

    you guys are too tough

    you could do a complete season on just axles woth the differnt years and types state facts and then even then ther will be exempons to the rules

    i would like to see more in depth on some stuff like the electric systems on the tow rig urbin grilla but it would put most of you to sleep ( the attchen span of a nat )

    i would like to see a more teck builds with more junk parts i do see a problem with this
    1 Sponsors -- than need to sell stuff being used
    2 time - you guy will not watch a full show

    I personally like how they are taking the Budget Buggy and putting a set of Rocks under it:rolleyes: . I guess it only stayed a "budget buggy" for one season:D .

    Even though they have some different opinions on stuff than most of us do I think the show overall is pretty kewl. They really only do about 15 min of tech then the other half of the show is about some tough truck challenge, mud racing or rock competition. And I personally feel that that stuff is kewl regardless of the area of offroading.

    The Dana 70 / Sterling thing did have me scratching my head. And they failed to mention the 16 spline Dana 60 rear that is floating around out there.
