    Wonder if they ever fixed the front broken links? From the pics, the front axle does look twisted.

    They had it for sale a while back. Lounge discussion is here. Looks like no one bit, so they are going with eBay.

    I don't think so with the tire size they specified at 30/13.50-17 . That thing would be dragging all over the rocks :haha:

    I still hate James for how he treated that rig and talked trash about the off road world. If I remember right, he was a party pooper that whole week because he knew this truck was gonna go slow and was not fast for him. I personally think thats the reason he went out and destroyed it. Too slow for him so he had to mock the sport. :angry1: :angry1: :angry1:

    I remember when the guy from Avalanch Engineering said "and we need to put really big tires on it.." and Jesse say's "like 35's???" :haha:

    And the oter guy say's " no man, like 40"++" and Jesse goes :eek1: :eek1:

    weird rig. They narrowed the rear end... which is always a good idea... but they didn't narrow the front. :confused:

    Also, that much bling in a rig and they stuck with a 1310 joint on the front driveshaft? :confused:

    Jek, if I remember correctly, the front is narrowed. If that clover wasn't on the grille you could see where it just had an F and D from the "ford" logo...


    I'm with Yield2me. The parts alone are worth it on that rig. PLus I lie EB's.. :D

    I dont care who owned it, built it, etc.. It's still a kick ass rig.

    oh, ok... couldn't really see any narrowing in the posted pic... it must be more gradual than the rear end or something cause it looked relatively wide.

    the 1310 front joint is still silly. ;) :grin:

    The front shaft was a HAD part. Jesse must have figured it would've been fine.
