First, who the **** do you think you are calling "son?" I am not your son, I am not your cousin and I am sure as **** not your dad. In fact if I was your dad, you wouldn't be here because I would have beat the stupid out of you and your mom long ago. You are living proof that the population is getting more and more ignorant as days go on. I fear that one day you will inevitably reproduce and create more morons that are even dumber than you are. You are a self absorbed, self important, short minded idiot and if I could go back in time, I would give your mom a rusty clothes hanger so she could self abort.

Second, I know there is a Crown Vic that runs around Moab. Doesn't matter to me what that guy does. Who the **** cares?

you two are so cute. I really like the ox lockers too. You don't have to worry about a pump, leaky air lines, or electrical failure.

It's an aluminum alloy full of awesomeness. I believe it was "classified" until the year 2000, and it's used in Military and aerospace applications everything from structural to armor.

I was going to do a 7075 tie-rod (which I have used before as links and steering), but decided to give the 7068 a shot.

A really strong aluminum alloy. Where as 6061 has a yield strength of around 400 kilopound per square inch. 7068 is closer to 1000 KSI. Most titanuim alloys are around 700-800 KSI.

What are you using for ends on it? Also, what dimensions is it? Hollow or solid? Asking cause I'm still up in the air for steering on my expo. I don't think I'll go that route though cause I need much more then 6' I'm guessing and that would add up fast! I need to start looking around to see what others are using.
