    That is very good news. Thanks to everyone who contributed. I can't believe this type of BS even got as far as it did though; it's sad that it's actually necessary to get together to prevent this type of thing in the first place.

    How do I join the 'SEMA Action Network'?

    Well, it was brought to you by Senator Daschle, everyone's favorite communist. Not much of what he does any more is good for anyone but himself. Commie pinko liberal bastard. I hope he looses his seat in his next election and actually has to get a job for the first time in his life./forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    I was a bit worried as I'm sick of this IFS BS and selling my 92, but the newest solid axle GM is 11 years old already! I can't afford a Ram and I don't want a Sooper Dooty./forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
