325. They where $2000 less than Fargo, and I had hunters coming from the cities. Mailed them the money, hunters drove it up. Win win.

I'm hoping 350 is enough to pull wheelies in street trim, and keep the nose light while spinning 33s. If not I have a plan all the way to 550hp, but its expensive.
Yeah man was a ****ty weekend for everyone. I should have my new XJ built by then so it will be a good time next time. We might be planning a moab trip in the spring so just sayin...

Haha

Nice Kia btw, know a guy with one, fun quick little cars

Found a smoking deal on my dream truck. Kenworth makes it, one big nasty cat shakes it.

Buggy is still at elite. This is for hauling seed and chemicals in, and a lot of corn out. I have a triple axle hopper bottom that with this long beast, and the third axle I'm putting on it I can haul 105,000 lb in ND.

It's getting about that time. I'm planning on tube framing the rear on bruiser, possibly air shocking it. Any advise on shocks? I like my foa coilovers, but think air shocks are quieter.

Did a little flexing today before I put bruiser away for a couple months.

I bought fox 2.0 air for the buggy and I really like them, but I don't think 2.0 would be enough for bruiser.
