    He's trying to sell it now (why I don't know). I've got some pics of the suspension to if anyone wants to see them. I think it's a 3 link front and it has King bypass shocks all the way around. Pretty interesting stuff.

    I was going to point that out also. I don't think Ryan's is built specifically for jumping though so I give him credit for pulling it off. Both are awesome though.
