I think it's just an additional thing to add with the truck nuts. I see it as a warning. "I think I don't have to sleep because I drink monster." Something like that. I honestly don't get why people put it on thier trucks.

I wouldn't imagine very long. I'd most certainly die in it.


Think about being at the bottom of test hill and not lifting all they way up.

I believe it is the guy I bought mine from, I can't seem to get a straight answer out of him about what he got. Think i might have to make a surprise visit to check it out.
I will have to think about the ride thing, if I give 1 person a ride I will have a line of people wanting a ride.

Thats kinda what I was thinking...

Are we supposed to be impressed that it can do a wheelie with the weight bias behind the rear wheels?

2760 lbs with nobody in it. My car is built beefier than most, 1 3/4" tube rather than 1.5". A little lighter would be nice but I know it will hold up to the abuse.

And what do you have that is "cool"? I would say most people think it would be an awesome ride by the number of times I get asked. Bet I could make you scream like a girl in less than 2 laps around the dunes
