    Ok, so who has seen these pics in The Garage

    AND... Who is going to do it to a Sub? That would be a really cool 3 person wheeler.

    I think that I would use the KISS method on it and narrow the whole body, the stock frame, and keep everything else stock looking. I think that a .5 ton rig with and at most 38's with no more than 3 inches of lift. It would have EXCELLENT flex and be very managable.

    If I weren't in the middle of a topless Sub project. I would seriously consider this as a hardcore trail rig.

    I refuse to allow your sickness to infect my semi-sane world.

    My new personal montra:

    I will NOT start another new project...
    I will NOT start another new project...
    I will NOT start another new project...

    Who am I kidding. Of course I am going to start another new project.

    Jeremy, you are a BAD influence on me. Stay away you sick bastard!!!
