Re: Whoaaaa, scary lifts!!!

Oh My God! There is some scary backwards stuff on that sight. The 8" lift blocks on some of the rigs are the LEAST scary part of any of them. You guys gotta check this stuff out!

Re: Whoaaaa, scary lifts!!!


I'm lost for words. If you need a good laugh, the pictures are funny and the commentary is pretty good.

Re: Whoaaaa, scary lifts!!!

stones and glass houses....
that frankintaco guy talks all sorts of trash, then on his how to page he shows his stuff......

anyone see why this is just a Little off?

the retaining washer is upside down. the washer is machined to allow range of motion on a normal rod end. but he is using a necked ball rod end so he could have used a normal washer. I hate T sips.

Re: Whoaaaa, scary lifts!!!

No, I don't see a problem. Other than the safety washer doesn't look appreciably bigger that the hole in the rod end. But then the picture isn't real clear. What am I missing?

Re: Whoa, scary lifts!!!

I edited my original post a few minutes ago to add the answer. sorry.

It is not scary, but a waste of money. but, if someone tried to follow his lead with a normal rod end, they would end up with very scary steering.

Re: Whoaaaa, scary lifts!!!

I suppose it was amusing, assuming of course you overlook the outright vulgarity, bad grammar and spelling, retarded and out-of-place political commentary, and overall "my poop is ever-so-fragrant" attitude of the writer...

The pictures were funny, though.
