Last time I saw that is when I sold you my tires. It was pretty much just a rolling chassis. Looks sweet!

More pics from that trip here:

We are going to the badlands this weekend to run pink and the new half of orange. Now that I have a couple trips under my belt in this new cruzah, I am alot more confident in it's abilities.

That is badass..


Do you happen to have a picture of your limit strap setup?

That thing has some awesome flex... You ever run into rear DS issues?

cc,

I don't have any rear limiting straps right now, my shocks are the limiting factor. Every now and again It will spit the rear coil out if I flex it out too much. It is actually on my list of things to add...

As for the rear d-shaft...I am running a pretty short trans and dual cases. The wheelbase is about 104-105". My rear d-shaft is about 30" long. Toyota ujoints can operate at a steeper angle then just about any other shaft joint. It will drive down the road at about 60mph without vibes.(just have not drivin it any faster)
