    I remember those orders. Some so big from LMC that the bill would be almost $1000. Some for my 63 Impala SS were well over that mark. Restorations cost money, sad thing that these days that hard earned money doesn't go as far

    it does... although you may have to take off the inside corners of the fenders if you get good flex

    I got a very nice personally signed by all employees thank you card from LMC last winter when I ordered $1200 worth of stuff.
    BTW, you get free shipping from LMC if your order is over $1000.

    I think with my stock suspension that my flex isnt going to be all that great. I measured and it is really close to the body panels which was what worried me, I would rather not hack it up as it is my dream truck.

    Im using it as my DD so I want it to be trail worthy but not extreme Ive been extreme offroading in my 86 352\sm465\14bolt stock front\205 and learned you need a lot of money to fix stuff I really miss that truck i could have pulled parts off of it!

    As for shipping from lmc i think that you get free truck frieght or free shipping over $1000

    Ill save the extreme stuff for a truggy that I plan on building in the future
