    This is precisely why IQ tests should be given and if you fail you get your nuts clipped so you can't infect the rest of the population.

    Needs more lift...another 24" should do it.

    Ya know...eventually one of these genius's is gonna mount a body to one of those manlift things. Then add 49" Irok's and run the lift up until they're dragging overhead wires down the street. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    At least the lift isnt composed of just blocks stacked ontop of each other..., and at least its a SFA and not a humongo IFS lift. Im not saying its safe at all...Im just saying it could be worse

    Nice driveshafts too /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Thats a pretty hokey suspension set up. Really ridiclous. It would be cool if it was 4 link and some bigger tires. Thats just AWFUL. What a joke. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    That tube cube for a subfame is nice to hang a towel on at the beach, or hang a tarp from to create some shade when it breaks.
    Oh, some trucks do rub the power lines:
    There is a chrome bolt on shop down the street from where I work. One of the techs there comes by now and then to bs about how pointless the rigs he works on are. He told me recently that they are bulding a custom dodge ram around some 48" or 52" michelins with rockwells. The center of the headlight is 93" tall (that is not a typo yes it is 7' 9" at the lights). That is at ride height, the truck has firestome airbags that can give another 13" of lift. (the cab is literally higher than a street light then) No joke he is serious. He's gonna call me when the tires are in (I want to inspect the michelins for my own use) and I am gonna post some pics. It will be a total waste of parts and time. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    not a total waste... idiots are being relieved of their $$$... always a good thing. As lame as the tech thinks those trucks are, they are prolly the kinda customer that keep the shop in the black. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
