I always have issues when I pay people to do anything. If I mess it up, oh well. But if they mess up what I am paying them for it is the end of the world!!

Good thing that I can't afford to pay anyone else to do anything.

Battery... Yeah, bought the 2nd battery for the race truck so that we'd have all our weight in the rear for the shock tuning. We're blasting thru some big whoops doing the testing on sunday and the shock tuner comes on the radio. "uh hey khris, one of your spares just flew out and the straps dragging, might want to come back." I look in the mirror and sure enough, one of the spares is sitting crossways in the back and the strap is dragging along behind. Well the spare it turns out landed square on the neg terminal of the new battery and busted it out of the battery. It didn't break the plastic housing or anything, just simply popped out. So Sunday afternoon I go back to pepboys with my 24hour old battery and my receipt and simply tell them it pulled out while I was tightening up the clamp. Yeah, that's it!!!! So they exchange it and off I go to install the replacement. All good!!! LOL Pure luck!!!


Oh and FYI, they all walked away including the dog!

I figured you of all people would be appreciative of a classic considering your ride of choice?

If you want 4WD crawler and speed there's a better platform out there, it's any ford with a TTB style front suspension! Not amazing at either but REALLY good at both with not much craziness involved fab or money wise in comparison.

You want badass? Single cab '90 ranger, 4wd with TTB front end, extended radius arms, cut and turned dana 44 beams, coilovers and bumpstops, cage it, fiberglass all the way around, links in the rear and drop in an LS based motor with an auto trans and put it on 35 or 37" tires and you'll be able to hang with Garza in the rocks and smoke him in the whoops!!! LOL And if you did the labor yourself it could be done for under $15K pretty easy and possibly even $10K if you found some good deals in the right place at the right time! That's including the vehicle purchase!!! Plus if you did it right, you'd still have a truck bed that was fairly open and usable for hauling gear.
Someone better hurry then.....cause my piggy banks is almost here

On another note, I have a new Van Alstine tire groover on the way. I went to Casey Currie/Savvy Offroad shop in CA this weekend and cut on one of my Falkens. Turned out awesome, so if any of you guys ever feel like hacking on your tires, I'll have the tool.
