Good idea!

I'd run the black with gray links with the rest of things having subtle hints or bare aluminun and hints of red to highlight the interior options that you have picked out.

Putting the buggy back together is taking a bit longer than I thought. I have the electric 75% done for fans lights pumps and what not done. I am waiting on 4 items to show up then it will be just a matter of a couple wires and hoses and its a driver. Few more parts and its a racer. We have a rough date set for its first prerun. This of course depends on parts delivery and work schedules.

Depends if farmer has manure spread on his field yet. If not in his field a couple miles from my house. If he does then I'll probably head south for the weekend.

Also my new winch showed up.

No overtime lately. I'd have 8 alum links instead of slumming it with DOM uppers if I had OT.

So what did the static ride height end up being with those springs and new links? Really interested what the ground clearance is at the lowest point of the frame with that wicked stance.
