    Hey you Rock Guys!

    Everytime I see these pics I ROFLMAO! :haha:

    This creation is from a friend of mine, who serves in my unit on Fort Hood. He owns a K5 and is a member here, likes to MUD, but is getting into the rock scene. He wants to 4 link his rig, so he decided to experiment with his 4 1/2 year old daughters wagon. He loves to weld and fabricate, so nothing booty here! Just good ole fashion Michigan ingenuity!

    Hold onto your seats, you're gonna [​IMG]yourself laughing!

    The 4x4 Wagon of the Year!

    The front, equipped with headlights:

    The rear equipped with led starcluster tail-lights and Chevy badging:

    Equipped with AM/FM Stereo CD with 6x9 speakers:

    Linked rear suspension for a plush comforting ride:

    Swing arms complete with bushings and two adjustable load shocks:

    Rear fully compressed not bottoming out:

    Front Suspension:

    This thing is absolutely hilarious and a blast to see comin' down the sidewalks. His daughter just loves it and has a great time in it. This is a work in progress, so it isn't finished yet, but I just can't help but laugh in amazement with Jim's ingenuity, craftsmanship and love for his daughter.

    This is awesome! :bow: Great Job, Jim!

    Now it just needs a set of Boggers!

    Manny

    Takes a real big man to trash a kids' wagon. Takes even a bigger man to put down a dad who'se trying to do everything for his daughter. So the only one who needs to examine himself is you.

    Chill out, Manny. You're really jumping to conclusions here. When I saw that reply, I laughed because I'm pretty sure he was just bugging you.

    I think its awesome he made that for his daughter. And like you said, for love of her, too. It could be worse, he could have been some dad who didn't care to make something like this, let alone even think of his daughter when he wanted to do something special for her.
    This is just outstanding. The work and the love he shows for her. Now this makes me wanna build something for both of my kids.

    No disrespect Canmore, but I don't think I'm the one who needs to chill. I know Jim and he loves his kid to no end. That wagon means the world to his daughter. If you (generic) don't like it or think it's stupid, that's one thing. But where is the limit on personal attacks? Or do forum rules apply for just me, and no one else?

    I don't cause trouble here. I have nothing but positive things to say about everyone and I'm supportive and try to help. I like to make people laugh. But if you ain't got nothin nice to say, then it's better you don't say anything at all.

    There, I've poured the piss outta my wheaties and have gotten a new bowl.

    I'm okay. It's over.

    Manny

    I'm supportive and try to help as much as I can, and have done so for over 7 years. However, I can also take a joke. Geez, my wife and I are the butt of many a joke around here- if I got upset every time, I would have had a heart attack long before you even joined CK5.

    In addition, I really don't think any disrespect was meant because I understand the frame of mind of the guys who posted up. Perhaps that's something to consider.

    i see no personal attack. did he say you were gay? did he not use the proper emoticons to convey his joking manner? :dunno:

    your mom isnt here, so that rule doesnt apply. :deal:

    looks like a cool wagon, when we were kids we'd sit in our radio flyers and go down big(at the time) hills, racing. Woulda been nice to have suspension, I swear I broke my butt a couple times on bumps, lol

    I may be a softy guys, and out of line, but he posted that with the intent of showing off something most of us would find as cool. He didn't post it to play games with other members. That is for the lounge. He started a serious thread about something mechanical related, and didn't know that the reply he received was all in fun. If he wanted to make jokes, he would have posted it in the lounge. I realize it wasn't a real mean joke, but in his state of mind, it obviously hit him wrong. Anyway just my 2 cents.
