    It's not from ORD. That dude lives in Wyoming and he just happens to have some of the old parts from Wally. I forgot his name but him and his dad are really nice guys... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    His name is Jeff Aguada (spelling on the last name)
    He is just a customer that has bought a lot of parts and called a bunch for help or advice on his rig.
    Of all the rigs I saw at easter this year his is my fav. hands down. Very clean and well put together.

    I don't think he got any wally parts, it's custom leaves front and rear in the stock mounting points with traction bars in the rear and a Doubler and lots of other goodies. It's definitely nice. Look for a full feature in fourwheeler in the next few months.

    deffinitely one of the cleanest blazers I have seen.
    they put a ton of time into building the thing and it was cool to actually see it out on the trail.

    he was even crazy enough to run pritchet canyon with us /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    So did you end up meeting my Boy Toby Till with the EB Yet? It's painted with red Durabak and silver lightnighstipe graphics on the fenders on Hummer rims. Pages 60,and 62

    He does have ORD parts just not any x Wally parts. I think the usable Wally parts are pretty much gone now and the others are either on the wall of shame or put in the scrap bin.

    But we did find some interesting history of Wally things when the shop got moved, the original swaybar disconnects came to the surface. These are the first set that Stephen built in our parents garage. /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif
