Yep it's prime, my buddy Randy owns the place so I use that place from time to time as a heated workshop
No I never lived out that way. But I still live in midland.

Went and looked on map of where valley drive is....man some nice houses down that road huh!

Here is some more random photos in no particular order

With newly assembled 4 link. Hence the no paint.

Here's the anchor


And the 60

Imped, to answer you more thoroughly I seriously considered doing a 4link.. I may have made a wrong choice in the time in the build but the knowledge and time that it took to do that was little overwhelming so I made the best choice possible with the choice being obvious. If I lived out in the desert area the choice would be simple. But there isn't really any go fast spots here in Michigan besides silverlake sand dunes. But it all could change with a night of drinking and a sawzall. Lol

Ordered my 40-13.50r17 Mtr/kevlars along with some 17x 9.5 Allied monster beadlocks! Good but very expensive day.

Yeah I've had mtr's forever. Seemed like the logical tire. I've had 31s,33s,37s and now 40s. Always been happy with them. Always had all the traction I've ever needed.

Looks great! It's nice to see my garage isn't the only one that's well used!

Next steps are to plumb the brakes and get driveshafts. Regear the axles. Install kits are in route.
