    YEEHAA It works! 1 ton, crossover and 37 MTR\'s in action- PICS, and Thanks

    Finally got my project done /forums/images/icons/cool.gif , and I would like to thank a few people for their patience with all my questions and help I received through the forums, PM's and phone calls. Russ (Baddog), Wes (ThatK30guy), Tim (Butch), Sean (Ript), Marv (marvspringer), Mychal (90blzr), Juan (juanblazer), Frank (BlazinOR), Mike (BLUESMAN), Matt (NoRulz), Rene (tRustyK5), Pete (pcorssmit), Rich (Ddragggon)

    YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME! Thanks again! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Here's some pics of the night run me and the local club guys went on tonight. We ran Mingus Mangler, and the truck performed great! I did notice I had to shift the Blazer back and forth a few times to get the steering to respond correctly, the MTR's grab WAY better than the BFGs and Coopers...

    Wow, looking good!

    Wish my POS was running... But, it's getting closer. Set the painted cage in today. Probably work on the floors tonight when it cools off. Then, when I get a fuel tank in, it will be driveable again. Still need lights and shocks after that to be minimally ready for moab.

    Good deal. You want to run a test run some time before we head to Utah?

    I hear you on the minimally ready thing. That's where I'm at now. I have a few things to finish, like diff guards, pusher fan for the tranny cooler, better front brake lines, etc etc.

    I would love to make at least one trial run before leaving out. But, I've got to find a tank first...

    Well if you go to gov.auctions.com you might find a used M60 tank. But I don't think the guns will be on it.

    LMAO! You floored me with that when I first saw it, spent about 10 seconds looking at it (email notification) in complete stupefaction. Then I reread my post... /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Looks great! I'm jealous too -MTR envy... they were all sold out when I was buying tires. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif But the new BFGs are pretty nice too.

    Do you guys belong to a club or something? I'd like to get in on one of these runs too. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Hey Fred, nice ride. I know you'll enjoy that crossover steering. Its one of the best mods I've done to the "THING,"
    not to mention the D60 with a Lock Rite.

    Will
