Good point on the 14 bolt. I was only responding to the front 60.

Yes, I have a modified 9" with a HI-9. And yes, I am a HI-roller but not a high roller.

Not sure what you are refering to.

lol, yeah, that is the only reason I was considering it, but I'm thinking of just holding off till I either break my current stuff so bad I need to swap or I finish getting all my parts together.

Went out yesterday to Bundy Hill, had a great time. I only scared myself once lol. I was going up a washout and got about 3/4 the way up there and stalled my truck, then started rolling backwards since the brakes don't work well when it isn't running, did that 2 times right in a row and all I could thinkabout was flipping it over and rolling down that hill....I ended up backing down and taking a break for a bit haha

Other wise had a lot of fun, put it on it's side once and 3 wheeled a bunch of times and pretty sure I 2 and one wheeled too. Only damage I got was a marker lite, bent my D ring on the rear really bad and I am pretty sure my box will never be the same. Here are a few pictures.













The picture on it's side, I drove thru it, that was fun


Here are some videos

Small update build related, got the rest of my parts today, now I just need a locker, rims and tires and I am swaping tons.

Gears (5.38's), seals, U joints


Ruffstuff order, diff covers, disk brake swap brackets, shock tabs, sping priches and track bar mounts.


My weld on wedges and new bushings


and the new to me Ford 205


Then a couple of my trashed box....it isn't looking good. Hope I find a new one soon lol






Then the trailer tire blew on me yesterday, I wonder if going 85 trying to catch up with CTB2 so we could moon him had anything to do with it?? LOL, it blew out just as we got next to him....mission accomplished.

Thanks!

Picked up some brand new rims today, the deal was right so I got them. I wanted 17's but these are 16's. And I was told they were 7" wide but they are only 6 with a 3.250 backspace. Should work fine for me with some weld on beadlocks. They will end up about 7.5 wide. Now I news DIY locks and tires.

Lol! I have seen worse but they will look good with a set of beadlocks on them. Maybe I will powdercoat them black or get some fancy beadlocks.
