WTF is inside the cage? Looks like a full tuber that grew around the body of something....don't see much point to the "something" anymore.

But cool non-the-less.

Looks like we have a high school graduate here, maybe a college freshman. Community college I'm guessing..

The proper sequitur would be, a vehicle sitting on the axles is not at full droop, but to each his own.

What you do not see in this photo is the pair of winches that will control ride height.

Good day Sir.

I'm guessing you are not married. Married folks are not allowed to work on projects each waking minute of availability. By saying "I do" you are condemned to a life of dinner parties, theatre shows, and in some rare cases, getting past the headache line for some fun in the sack.

Since the project is currently moving at the speed of an oiled up tortoise trying to climb a salmon ladder, I was forced to make up the pictured axle bracing until the national bank of my wife deems it appropriate to loan me some money out of my paycheck for rims.

Oh my god, an internet smart ass. What a cool new idea.

Anyway, don't mind Bones, hes a Mechanical Engineer from Kettering. Once you get out of the Electrical Engineering program the IQ of the students drops something fierce.

Sweet looking rig. Rockwells on a Sami...that should be cool. Your ground clearance and center of gravity should be near the same

I like it.

What are you doing for a powertrain to need rockwells?

I'll let you use one of my ideas if you want, hydraulic(sp) rams running cross car on the floor pan. They would be used to upright/prevent a flop in a hurry.

I'm not sure if they have rams long enough but its something to think about.
