man at work today it was 60 degrees and sunny, i wish i wouldve had the doors off.

how long does it take to take your doors off? its funny, youll have them off in one picture and on in the next.

and was it just the lugs on the tires that rubbed on the pinch frame or was there more? i like the look of the 32s but dont really want to trim my pinch frame...

Takes me like 2 minutes to take them both off.


Do you mean the pinch seam inside the front fender, or just the rear fender in general? If the front, it just freakin ate my tires, I had to fold it back.

The rear probably couldve gotten away with just going to the pinch seam and not folding it over. Ive never rubbed in the rear. Just the damn front. Im gonna have to bumpstop.

O man, those pictures are killing me. Makes me want to punch all the 'tards in my Senior Project team for not getting their crap done on Wednesday. I showed up and everyone else screwed around so I got to spend the amazing Saturday in the lab. I really hope I can get down there again before graduation. If not I'm sure I'll definitely be down on some weekends but I'll be coming from KC. I'll definitely let you know though. Sorry I couldn't make it. I'm super pissed at my group now, it looked perfect down there.

Nope no spring, its just solid in the body. I had to make it short enough to fit in the garage.

yeah thats why i got the fold over with mine, it folds the antenna down so i can fit my jeep in the garage easily. have you tuned the antenna either? i know tuners are expensive but if not tuned properly, it can damage your radio. just a heads up, i like the looks of it low like that

do you know how much range it gets yet? im hoping to also increase my range by mounting it on the roof..

Nope that was the Cherry Bomb. I actually have a stock muffler on it now though, the Bomb got annoying, and I put a big dent in it. Although, it might go back on because I ripped the stock monster sized muffler off on a rock.
