I was skeptical, but I'm digging the blue more and more each time I check your thread. Nice job Man.
You just reminded me that I have to sign up for the show n' shine, ****.

Hoping to have the last little pieces all on there by then, it'd be awesome to win one of the two XJ trophies, though I doubt I will.

What's the easiest way to figure out what length limiting straps I should make or buy?

Also someone find me a damn ramp in Pittsburgh that I can use as a mini RTI.

Edit: Got bored at work

Yeah technically I gave her it as a present when she got married, but I still can get it off her. I regret giving it to her now though.
