Does not run need to put motor back in it.
Tipster on here is who I'm trading and he is going to haul it for me, but he can't until Sunday and Greasyhands is out of town on Sunday so may have to wait untill monday or something.

Why I wish I had a garage of my own to work on shit.

I do want to get out again and do some more trail riding though so lets get something else going after this run? I was going to try to make it up to twisted Trails for 4th of July but money is a little too tight.

I am going to sandwich my frame rails with two pieces of 1/8 steel, then I am going to drill holes through them and use grade 8 bolts to mount school bus tow hooks and also going to weld the hooks to the frame for extra strength...no more playing around, that could of been a bad situation if that hook went through Freaks back window.

Everyone was laughing when I open my hood...now you know why! I seen someone get killed from a flying piece of steel attached to the end of a strap.

For future reference Freak you have a nice tool box you can lift the lid on to protect you from things flying through your back window.

I say lets have fun but more important lets make sure everyone gets to go home afterwords!

Well your at it mount them horizontally, your bolts will still be the weak part no matter what. The hooks being mounted vertically like they are make one bolt a pivot and the other takes most of the stress, its stronger.
