    Wtf

    YOUR RECON SOMEONE SHOULD TELL HIM 4-6" LIFT BLOCKS ARE FOR THE REAR AND NOT THE FRONT. DON'T SEE ANYTHING ABOUT THAT RIG THAT IS VERY SAFE. SHOULD BE EASY TO GO AROUND CORNERS THOUGH, JUST APPLY THAT ONE FRONT BRAKE AND PIVOT STEER :doah: :rolleyes:

    Go look at it on eBay (link above) There are so many things wrong with it that it is amazing and people are bidding on it.

    No worries, it won't make it very far anyways. 44" Hawg's on locked 1/2 ton axles. Update; I contacted seller on Ebay and asked him how long he thought those locked 1/2 ton axles would last with 44's. He replied saying they're 3/4 ton axles. I didn't know a Dana 44 and a 12 bolt GM axles were 3/4 ton axles, LOL.

    wow ,you guys are quick to judge! first blocks in the front used to be leagle and still is in some states, alot of semis have blocks in front . I didnt see plates in those pics so maybe its a farm truck. I spent some time in Arkansas, and you know some people are so dirt poor there that you either fab up what you can or you walk 5miles to the closest anything , and before the "I'd rather walk" crowd comes BS you would drive it! The ebay add seems to be on the up&up to me . You can take "safety" too far ,My brother thinks Im crazy putting my kids in a 78 suburban because theres no air bags. I hope this place doesnt get like pirate

    Sometimes it is not a matter of being "dirt poor", but "dirt stupid". Even a poor person with some common sense could do a better job then using a pair of welded locking pliers as a steering knuckle :haha:. If this person can get their hands on a welder, then they should have enough common sense to come up with a better idea than a locking plier steering knuckle :haha:.

    Wait till you see some pics of a jeep that my neighbor has. OMG its not safe, Ive never seen so much cobbling. Front extended shackles with about 4 inches of blocks up front. And to top it off, he didnt have long enough u-bolts so he welded bolts onto u-bolts to make it work. And as for z-link steering, ever seen anyone use a 6in x 6in square piece of metal there?:eek1: :haha:

    LOL..Yep...You don't need to hit E-Bay...hit some trails around here...there's all sorts of crap on rigs.. :eek1: :eek1:

    We call it "Farm Tech" around these parts!!!! :bow: :bow:

    As far as that jeep on 44's goes....
    I see a 100 dollar high bid...Groundhogs...are worth $500 easy...
    I could see myself parting this gem out..so I could buy even MORE mods to my rig.
    Probably a steal for a local buyer!!!! :wink1:

    But just remember "It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand" and thnak God for that. I was going to buy a 91 yj for $500 bucks. It ran well. My plans were to cut, chop, grind and make the thing a low rider just to piss some people off. :D
