Approach angle. being able to pull up to a wall and climb up it because the only thing that touches wall are tires(not bumper)., cheapthrillb2 I had the silver blazer on 38's that made it through the mud hole at the big valley. you have built an awsome rig, planning on taking blazer body off and putting 72 chevy cab and front clip on it.

but amazingly the blazer made it everywhere without a tow or tug, even pulled a couple people out, the only bad part is the wheel bearings went out on the way home. but it made it, glad I didn't haul it on my double drop I never would have gotten in the park.

Oh forgot, other then the broken tie rod the only other damage or almost damage I found near the end of the day was on my RF axleshaft. At the end of the day I caught a ujoint cap starting to walk out and the c-clip to spit out. Caught it before I damaged anything though

So the F-250 had the Orig sales receipt in the glove box....the total purchase price for the 96 f250 2wd was 18,575.02 out the door, the down payment at time of purchase was 18,575.02 Sold on 11/28/95.

Dealer was R.E. Barber Ford in Holland and was sold to The Bouma Corporation in Grand Rapids.

Well had the week off from work and DID NOTHING. Which sucks having all sorts of free time and not being able to use it. Every vacation I have taken in the last 3-4 years has been scrambling to get the truck ready and then a trip at the end of the week. But unfort I hurt my self on the 1st, wheeled the truck on the 2nd and have been stuck doing absolutely nothing since the 3rd. But I did go hang out at Feva4u's garage and watch him work on his jeep Fri and Sat and even got to do "very little" physical work helping him with his.

But I picked some lighting kits to get front and rear lights on the truggy, have a trip planned for Valetines weekend which involves some street time with the truck is it needs to sort of resemble a legal truck with lighting etc which also means I need to get a plate for the truck as well.
