    I am no longer a web wheeler (again:crazy: ) It has been almost 2 years for all three trucks to finally get going (comfortably for the HP and Zeeks)

    It was just a quickie but all the rain down here has really changed this trail.

    I am VERY VERY happy:D with the way my truck handled its first run. I am able to do 65 on the freeway:eek1: , blast down the rocky roads (supposed to be graded but the rain washed everything out.) at about 35, and crawl

    the 56"fronts/57"rears handled very well. I think the key is good shocks. body roll is DEFINATELY there but if you are worried about that then soft springs are not for you.

    and now for the pics.

    airing down.

    I was raised in El Paso on the west side- that's my old stompin' grounds. Got my social promotion from Coronado High in '83. Used to wheel all over the place.
