I'll take that trail plug title this year. Those rocks just loved my diffs.

I thought you guys did pretty well on the ledge. Definitely put on a show!

Its nice when you have faith in your rig when you know you can just stand on it and let it rip without fear .

It was entertaining watching you beat on yours in the rocks and up against the trees.

Basic rundown....

Swapping out my non-eb frame for the orig. eb frame my body came from.

Going to a eb rear suspension and doing a shackle flip.

3 or 4 link on the front (undecided, but leaning towards 4)

Full Hydro (undecided on single or double)

New winch

Extending the wheel base, but not cutting out the rear tailights. Going to extend the 1/4's between the door frame and the wheel well.

Pretty much gonna tube alot of it and hang sheet metal off the tubes.

Twin stick my 205




With all that said, I picked up the frame and another set of rear 1/4's last night.

What is the advantage to going with the EB frame? Something wrong with the fullsize? Seems like the truck was very well sorted out as it was.
