    is that what you wanted those 12 inch springs for? that is seriously cool. what is the heighth limit on headlights in texas.i think its 48" at the top here in LA. Are those ground hogs on it? One last question. How long did it take you to make that tube frame? Very nicely done by the way.

    Yes that is what I wanted the 12" springs for. The hieght limit is 52" here in Texas but I think it will be ok. Those are 40" gumbo mudders. It only took about a month. Thanks for all the good feed back.

    Not sure on the tire size yet. More than likely no bigger that a 44. This is my daily driver. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I was worried about how it was going to turn out but once we put the body on that all changed. I am even happier now that you guys like it too I though it might have just been me. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Todd,

    That is some IMPRESSIVE tube work!

    I didn't really have any concept of how hard it was to build with tubing until I started doing some myself recently. Now I can really appreciate how much work it must be to cut and fit all those tubes perfectly, and get everything plumb and squared-up.

    Really impressive. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Well, I have had my K/5 for 3 years now ( went and bought it on my 15 birthday) and when I got it it was all stock. So I have changed it about once a year.

    Thanks for the kind words Greg. I wish I could say that I built the frame /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif but I can't. My best friends dad has been building drag cars for his whole life and when I started having frame problems he said could build a frame for it. So here we are. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
