Lol, no sh*t. Thats what I thought when I saw that posted at CK5.

Anyone see the springs on page 118 of the November Petersons. Ouch!! What's the point of the coil-overs those springs are barely even gonna move with that tight an arc.

saw that too in Peterson's. Might as well just weld the axle to the frame at that rate.

Re: Holy rough ride batman!

I dunno about anyone else but that is just stupid as far as I am concerned. That practical for anything at all? Something like that would just flip over on the places I normally go. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Wow! That's just plain stupid.

Why would anyone invest that kind of time and money, just to produce a vehicle that's gonna ride and preform like crap?

Worst part is, he doesn't need nearly that much lift.

That thing is in serious need of a panhard bar or 2. It'd be down right scary in the bush.

looks like a nice, clean, stout truck and the guy has to go booger it up with those stupid springs. I wonder why he said he never took it out of his driveway [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I like how he said "PLEASE GET THIS TRUCK OUT OF MY WAY AND MY GARADGE!!!!!!" If the price was right I'd buy that truck. I would lower the hell out of it.

Laters, Ryan

Absolutely ridiculous. What a waste of a truck. That thing looked clean too! I feel sorry for that poor truck. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Re: Holy rough ride batman!

See that red tag hanging from the back? Its a 'remove before flight tag'. I like those, and I want one.
