Needs a front hitch. Needs pull points up there. Other than that, nice score.

2"bodly lift.

Torison bars twisted up and longer rear shackles. 33x12.50 with very very little rub.


Wife hit a "adopt a highway" sign launching it 20 ft into a cornfield and barrel rolled it. Landed up right as it sits in the pic. I reached in and fired it up drive it out to the road. Replaced the body (black one in previous pic). Put it on the alignment rack @ work, toe wasn't even out. Wife walked away with sm. Cuts and only a concussion.
