Wow if people spent less time giving people crap and more time building their rigs they might actually have something cool to wheel...... ha ha ha

I actually got started on trogdor the burninator's rig, I got a nice pattern on the ring and pinion and the rear axle installed, waiting on a few more disc brake parts, hope to start the front tomorrow, here are a few pics.

leaf springs arent exactly even on both sides of the spring perch, thus flipping them so the longer side is forward, it pushes the axle back..in my case they were 25" approx. and 31" approx. so it sits a good 5" farther back with the springs flipped. making a better departure angle.

I got more work done on trogdor's rig, do to the frame design and not wanting a lot of lift we decided not to do a 3 or 4 link suspension because there is not enough room for up travel, the upper links would hit the motor mount and all fuel lines would have to be rerouted, so in the front we are doing a radius arm type suspension, here are some pics of the brackets for the front axle, frame and steering box, should have more pics soon
