If some one did buy it, good luck towing it home. That P.O.S. would hit every bridge you came across..

What is holding it up in the back... Hard to tell from the first picture, but I see a rear shackle with nothing in it, those long assed link bars, no shocks, springs or coilovers?? Plus you can see huge plates bubblegummed to the back part of the frame....

If he would have double framed it and welded 2 coils together with at least 3 more shocks per wheel ( preferably neon color ) and stacked more blocks to get rid of that ridiculous body lift it would be wheelable anywhere...

I wonder what's under the pop-riveted black sheetmetal?



I'm betting..... nothing.

They did an excellent job of building it HEAVY. When I rolled it off the trailer one of the front coil springs fell off. Roll cage is interesting but I do not think the welds would hold up very well. I sure would not trust my life under the bars. It is going to get parted out though so the heavy leftovers will make good tonage.
