wow, it's been awhile ... this needs some updating.

The front 44 has survived a few good rompings since October and has only broke 1 standard Warn lockout and 1 ctm ... great company .. sent it back and sent me a new one.


Recent updates:
~lowered 2"
~installed new/used longer springs in the rear .. once dialed in the wheelbase will be just over 107" w/o moving the gas tank
~rockrings .. Fab by Tab
~more cosmetic work .. oh, and painted the roll cage.
~fabbed up an sturdy tcase skid

it's not

It was the hose that got kinked and split, so the ram is fine. New hoses I'll be good to go.




So new specs: 8" lift, 39.5's and 107 3/8" wb

and no, because I'm ditching the 44 that makes it a pos ... besides every car show/parade it goes to .. it gets the most pics.

I'll also tell you the same thing I told Jim: cool thing about mine is I can go 20mph, smash into your shit and drive away like nothing happen.

We're either driving our JK or if the dealer gets the lift kit in for the next rig we'll probably drive that ... 2" lift, 1" body, AEV wheels wrapped w/ 35" BFG's and JCR front/rear bumpers...

You're challenging the wrong person to a smash-up derby.
