    as far as i know, he is not a member here.

    didnt catch his name, but he lunched his tranny and bent up one of those cheapo lowering shackels.

    seemed like a pretty cool guy

    yeah, that's a bit more lift than I have been planning on, but that may be a good thing with the breakover angle and departure angles burbs have.. Man, that rig has really inspired me.. When I find that 60 out there with my name on it, I'm gonna build up the burb to be like that. :bow:
    thanks,

    theres one just like that in columbia for sale.

    $2500 39.5's 60/14ff 465/205 add says it needs work, and hasnt sold in over a year. so it must be beat, and he wont come down on the price.

    WOW, I have almost 2 grand into the burb now, and its nothing more than a leaky, sputtering turd on baby tires.... Wish I could get a deal like that. Even if it does need work, thats a heck of a deal. Sounds like that thing has all of the components I would love to have. I would almost condsider driving the 500 miles up there to get it, If I had the money... I doubt if I will get that much money stashed back this summer, but just for kicks and giggles, could you email me the fellow's phone number? my email addy is speedy_buck@hotmail.com

    thanks,
    James

    We have wheeled with him at URE in the past. I am pretty sure he is from north of Fayetteville.

    He was having fuel pick-up/fuel pump problems last year. But we had to stop and replace a heim joint anyway. He came over and BS'd with us for a while and seemed like a cool guy.

    I do like the look of that scuffed up burb.

    I believe he is also running a 454. Oh, and where he is about to drive up in the pic is where i blew my front warn standard. Wouldnt have been as hard if it wasnt muddy there, and if the boulders didnt move after every rig that went through.
