O/T New Monster Garage

Did anyone else see the clowns with the ford car body trying to build a rock crawler from a Ford Bronco and the jacka$$ who actually said, "I think we can build a better rock crawler" refering to the boyz that build the phenom Bronco a couple months back. Holy cow what a dufus...how do you top the stuff they threw on the original rockcrawler boronco...sheeesh. Just wanted to vent to peeps that would see the irony...once [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] again, sheeeeeeesh.

Re: O/T New Monster Garage

Yeah, I watched it.
Problem 1: Built by car guys, not truck guys (though I have my suspicions about the guy who did the suspension...I know GodMudders sometimes shows off a monster DeLorean which is what I *thought* was going to be shown at first when I saw the guys driving DeLoreans and I'm wondering if that guy is affiliated with them).

Problem 2: Stock gears and no lockers

Problem 3: Trying to crawl some loosely dumped rocks...they should've trailered it down to the Badlands. Looked to me like they were hanging out around Cal Sag (which is near Godmudders).

I think if more of them knew the ins & outs and they'd had a few more critical parts, they could've built a better crawler...you do realize that when Jesse broke, one of the front link welds failed and that's what set it all in motion...the other one held together even after jumping it, they just didn't take care in routing the lines for the shock reservoirs. Fix that line, and that suspension will be right back at work.
