I might stop by the shop later to see it. Is that cool? Got some possible work for you too not 100% positive on that though on the jeep. But the guy who bought my ranger said he might be interested in that cage I was talking to you about with the ranger. Just has to get some money around.

I did not get many pics. But hear is what I got.


YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.






This was the only way I could get my 7 year old to ride.




The seal came out of my shock




I also riped the anti wrap bar off the rear axle I will get pics of that later. This is ok because I did not like what it did to the susp.

told you u wouldn't have any trouble with test hill. Too bad you're gonna spend the rest of the year linking/re-gearing/re-cooling it.

you should weld the bar back on & wheel it until winter when things get a little slower @ the shop.

I will post up some pics as soon as i get around to taking some. weather has been kind of shotty up here in the soo lately. I will have to stop in when i am down, probably a couple of weekends. I would love to check out the sammi, those things are completely sick when they are done right, i just don't have the time or space at college to do a proper build. I assume you can get suspension stuff? I would really like to talk to someone about suspension parts since i am kind of new to the 4w stuff and would like to improve upon my current setup. mine is an 85 frame, solid front axel, 90 body short bed single cab, lifted quite a bit (not sure exactly) with 33" kumho venture mt's. Pretty pleased with performance, only issue is flex...it has blocks in the back (big ones). would love to go over some alternatives. sorry to jack your thread with my details, i will just have to swing by and let you check it out and give some advice!
