Not a bad price at all!

Just wondering... when you go to Cleghorn, do you take every 'hard' track? im not a fan of drop-offs while going down an already steep hill. almost rolled several times taking the wrong turn when I was on my 2.5" lift haha

Dude that's one heck of a build. Awesome awesome job. Inspiring for sure. If mine wasn't my DD that I relied on so heavily I'd totally look at building mine to similar standards. Maybe when it's kept for a winter/trail rig only... Until then it's 3.5 and 31s lol. But again sweet build

Well went to Calico this weekend and the lockers took me up everything they are definitely my best mod.
I did however on our way back was going 20-30 mph on a dirt road when I hit a cover rock so my track bar bent/ sidewall on tire blew/ rim is done/ and passenger lower control arm is almost sheared off/

Dang that sucks man. Ya I wouldn't be scared to put big tires on like you if I didn't have a Dana 35 out back lol. It kinda restricts what my plans are since big lifts with small tires looks stupid haha. O well if I get around to axle swaps ever then the real fun will begin. Is that tie rod that bent the factory one?

Sorry I see it was the track bar. Thought you had long arms in front? Is that what's almost ripped off? Sounds like you've got some headaches ahead.
