It's been slow at work so I've had some time to work on it between customers. I put in Moog front lower and rear upper isolators and figured it was a good opportunity to throw my bb in. I thought my 245/65-17's would look small but it actually looks perfect to me. Definitely could use some longer rear end links for the Addco bar though. All in all it probably took 2 hours to complete and netted 2". Can't believe I didn't do this sooner.

So far it feels the same as stock for the most part. Feels a little tighter in the rear though since the links are a little short now on the Addco bar. Looking for longer ones now but all I'm finding is for 3"+.

It IS Taylor ham. I grew up in Rockaway. Live in AZ now. Ugh I'm in serious need of a diner.

Nooo not quite. Although I would like to do that at some point, this is a first on a dub as far as I know.

If I dont end up going to Arizona with some friends to pick up a transmission for one of their trucks, I should be picking up the metal Saturday. I'll definitely need your assistance though

Drove it check out a project I am looking at:





I thought the color scheme reminded me of something and finally figured it out....'Grabber Lime' on a '71 429 CJ Mach 1 Mustang, the colors are really very similar in person.


Plane is a Cassutt IIIM, an aerobatic race plane. 200-250 mph, 400 degree per second roll rate, +/- 12G's - a real amazing little plane. Begin in-depth inspection with an aviation mechanic buddy this weekend.
