    atleast he kept it nice and high-clearance so crawling wouldn't be affected. . .

    One day... I hope to have a truck with 20 chrome shocks, and 10" blocks. Except, I wouldn't waist Boggers on a poseur rig... I'd get some Mickey Thompsons...

    I think that must be the stupidest hitch I've ever seen. The "832 chrome shocks" are also a nice touch..... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    notice he did spend the time to triangulate them though. . . very nice. . . and probably helps flex too. . . /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I'm sure flex is a real big issue while backing out of the trailer....... /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    His wife made him do it.
    "You said we were buying that thing to pull the boat, now we can't pull any darned thing !!!"

    So, he fabbed the hitch and tol'er to shut up.

    it gets worse. . .
    i bet he needs these shocks ALSO
    [​IMG]

    atleast it has the light hook up [​IMG]

    what an awesome setup!!!!
    [​IMG]

    Jesse James did NOT do this- A) it's in texas, B) it sucks


    "Well Bill, after hours of arguing we finally got him to throw in the cell phone holder- I just don't think we could have made the deal without it."
    [​IMG]

    "We also got to keep those cups in the cupholder"
    [​IMG]

    I bet that skid plate gets nailed hard when taking those jumps out on the Baja. Those 22" lift springs are so soft I'd be surprised if you don't have to replace the thing every two-three trips.
    [​IMG]

    Rather than buying even larger, flex inhibiting springs, Larry opted for the second lift block, and triangularted rear shocks for maximum articulation when tackling Moab. . .

    [​IMG]


    Moab, AZ streets. . .

    He also lost the nut that holds the spare in place. . . so he tossed some old fishnet over it and tied it to the bed.

    Also some nice features Like:
    COLD A/C- as opposed to to warm variety.
    CENTER CONSOLE- umm. . . .they considered keeping it for themselves, but decided the final price might significantly drop.
    SHORT BED- is this really a feature?

    "It has a 22" custom lift kit with a 23 shock system."

    Ok- either they counted the STEERING STABILIZERS or they had 24 and one fell off.
