    I had an Itch this morning , I decided I wanted Behind the axle high steer, After hitting my ram , rockrod, and everything else , that was enough. So I had a full pack of smokes and a 18 pack of bud light and that was enough to get me motivated /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif I started with my homebrewd hi steer arm made out of 1"x4" steel ,drilled it welded a cut cap in it and taperd the holes to fit my TRE's in ,, which took a while ,Grrr!!,, </drink beer.........put down beer, throw something\> But since I had already made an arm for my X-over , I just switched it to the drivers side in reverse and it worked fine. All & all it went pretty well (even mounting the hydro ram) except for the 60 arms, they where a pain to build with my primitive shop tools, but I flexed it a bit and it worked very well !!! happy , happy ,, joy,, joy!!!
    I was just twitterpated and had to share this with you all /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i think the fact that it seems like you quoted the movie "bambi" when you said [ QUOTE ]
    twitterpated

    [/ QUOTE ], that you indeed inhaled more than 18 beers while the project was completed..

    Thats ok with me , but I am in no way a master fabricator I just do what comes to mind and if it works , fine , if it doesent ,cuss a little and chuck it in the trash /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif But if you can stand a little beer drinking , sometimes throwing things, and a lot of grinder dust your welcome to come over /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
