    Cool :thumb: I saw that in the mag. Then in another pic you can see you in the background. They always seem to keep the K5's in the background, while usually focusing on the Heeps etc. bastards...

    Cool truck and congrats! :waytogo:

    You probably just need to hit the "ENTER" key after the first picture. I'm guessing both pictures ended up as one line of text/code or whatever.

    That is way cool, CONGRATS! I have always felt like Petersens was more partial to full size rigs than Jeeps.........

    Those are 4" lift front and rear it nets me about 6" of lift but ridiculous wheel travel since they are so soft. I run bump stops to keep from reverse arching the front springs. I will see if I can dig up some pics of it flexing.
