    Get a membership and a bolt on steering brace.

    $150 won't really cover much else, and the membership is good for a year/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif The steering brace should be a mandatory first mod IMHO. Save your frame...

    Let us know when you go orange /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif And as for the other $125 you have... I sure could use a spare 36" swamper for my rig /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Put the rest in a savings account and wait till you have about 2 grand and do an axle swap to 1 tons. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
