    I am there! After seeing this and the one in Fourwheeler TTC, I have decided that I will run mog axles when my blazer becomes trail rig only!

    Hey Daniel,

    First I found the page with the pic's on it and 'copied' the url from the address bar. Then I added the url tags.

    Here's a quick rundown on all the features you can use to snazz up your posts...

    Can I use HTML in my posts?

    There are 2 ways that this can be configured on a per board basis. If HTML is On then you will see HTML is On and you can use normal HTML in your posts. If Markup is on you will see Markup is On. The following tags are available for your use if Markup is enabled:

    text = Makes the given text bold.
    joe@blow.com = Makes the given email address clickable.
    text = Makes the given text italic.
    [pre]text[/pre] = Surrounds the given text with pre tags.
    = Surrounds the given text with blockquote and hr's. This markup tag is used for quoting a reply.
    link = Makes the given url into a link.
    title = Makes the given title into a hyperlink pointing to link.

    These are all the smilies available...
    [blush] =
    [cool] =
    [crazy] =
    [frown] =
    [laugh] =
    [mad] =
    [shocked] =
    [smile] =
    [tongue] =
    [wink] =

    [red]text[/red] = Makes the given text red.
    [green]text[/green] = Makes the given text green.
    [blue]text[/blue] = Makes the given text blue.
    [orange]text[/orange] = Makes the given text orange.
    [black]text[/black] = Makes the given text black.
    [white]text[/white] = Makes the given text white.
    [yellow]text[/yellow] = Makes the given text yellow.
    [purple]text[/purple] = Makes the given text purple.

    with a double overdrive unimogs or rockwells would be like running 4ish:1 rear gears in top gear.
    so a 700r4 with a US Gear OD box, or a NV4500 with a ranger in front of it.
    not that i ran the math thinking on it or anything
    anyone need 10" springs 'n 1 ton gear...

    still a jerk though
     
  14. Looks good, what kind/size of coils and shocks are you using? Are you four linked? I'd be interested in seeing some pics of how the suspension is made. Mounts for the coils, links, ect.. !! Nice Rig !!

    DUDE..... That is very nice. How long did that take you? Not sure about the color of those axles, but itsure does make them stand out more.

    I like the ground clearance and gear ratio's, but the price is out of my range, and they must weigh a ton. Love the truck too. Pete.
