    Even I didn't know my parts were that great! LOL Check out his review on the main page and see if you do not agree. I think he is in the wrong line of work.

    Even your web site your stuff looks awsome. One day I will be able to actually stick some money in some areas like bumpers and trusses. Plus it is kinda like buying from ORD... one: ya keep it in the family... two:How can you argue buying from a guy with a Blazer like "THAT" [​IMG] heehee [​IMG]

    Mudzer seems to really have stuff together. I hope to make it to one of the Midwest K5 deals. Great write up on the truss too Mudzer.

    Looks great. Nice article and parts. One *very* small complaint (or a small wish actually), I wanted to see a shot inside the cover. Basically just to see how the pre-load stuff is setup.

    The preload setup is fairly simple. There is a piece of threaded heavy wall DOM tubing welded and gusseted to the inside of the cover. It goes within 1/4'' of the bearing cap. You thread a 1/2'' x 1 1/2'' long set screw into the cover and set the preload. Another short 1\2'' bolt is used with an oring to seal the cover at the back. Damage to the outside bolt does not affect the preload.

    Thanks for the kind words guys. I think my close friends would beg to differ on your comment about me having things together! At least in recent times. Chasing a woman will do that to ya! [​IMG]

    Steve Frisbie's parts are well built, and fit right the first time. He thinks of good ideas all the time. Its great to have people in the business who we can wheel with and see actual testing of their parts.

    As for attending the K5 thing runs, that would be great. I enjoy meeting K5 owners and wheeling. Plan a full schedule of events next year - Spring, Summer and Fall. Hopefully the vendors will be generous next year and we can give away some good prizes.

    Your crossmember is designed and awaiting the torch. Should be done next week.

    Steve,

    I am still in planning stages for this trip. I want to make the trip but do not have a tow rig nor a trailer at this time. I may buck up and buy something this summer. I will definately make a trip out sometime.

    Crossmember huh? I wanted to be Frisbie's first sale on this trick part, but I guess you can have the honor.

    Steve-

    What is the benefit of this new engine crossmember that you are cooking up for Mr. Fox? I also wanted to ask you about the rear shock cross member... do you make lower mounts that will work with my 14bff? If so, I might just add one of those to the D60 cover order too!!! [​IMG]

    Let me know man! Thanks again Steve!

    The crossmember is a replacement that will eliminate interference with crossover steering. The design is very similar to the one I am using on my truck only a little less beefy. Mine supports and stiffens the coil towers for the coilovers. I have shock mounts to fit any axle. I just need the tube diameter to make sure I send the proper ones

    The new crossmember will allow me to run 1-ton rod ends (they sit up a little higher) and a straight drag link, don't worry complete product review on the crossmember as well as the hi-steer setup.
