    better than it was! now i'm limited by the length of my rs5000s and they're 5012s! the truck is more stable when flexing with the sway bar off. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Yes I do, it was my design and creation on behave of Jekbrown...Jason wanted one for his and got me to make him one so that snowballed into Howlin Off Road. I do not have a website just a couple pics on a webshot folder and a page on the installation on blazzinOr's blazer. that is posted on the site below( thanks Mandy and to all who have made howlin off road what it is..and what it will be....)
