well my first time out, and I nose dived off a ledge, and snapped a leaf spring


I was a little worried this would happen because the shackles are mounted up front. I'm going to order some BDS military wrapped springs monday. hopefully it wont be an issue.

Im going to try and make it home for the blessing may 5th. before then I would like to get into some decent beadlocks, and a flat skid. Ill have to deal with the carbuerated motor, and manual trans for this year.

the 37"s are kinda hard to turn in the shit, so I just ordered a 8x1.5" cylinder, performance pump, reservoir, and what not for hydro assist.

as for wheels; originally I was going to go with walkers. Then I thought I might as well spend the money once and get double beadlocks. I'm leaning toward hutchinsons rock monster line, GM truck HD style to be specific. they look like they are loosely based on the H2 rim.

pictures to fallow, but it looks like my hosting website is down.

I bought this....


plus this.....


in order to make this.....



then I bought this......


I've got someone building an aluminum shroud for a taurus fan this month.

also picked up deez.


energy suspension poly motor mounts to replace the shot out ones in their now.

also bought a slew of parts from Ruffstuff to build this........


biggest problem with my SM465 is the long throws, and the fact that I cant reach 2nd gear when Im strapped into the 4 pt. this should fix both.


I think Im gonna be home for a few days on christmas, so I can get all this stuff done.
