The front foot or so of the frame where the factory crush zone is gone and at the back it's cut off pretty much right at the back of the cab. Kinda hard to see but here's the actual truck in it's former life. If you look closely at this picture behind the grill under the core support you can see the factory ripple in the frame which is the crush zone built into the frame rails. That's all be cut off and capped. Actually if you look closely at the picture you can also see it had a full frame rail to the back bumper but had a notch for the axle up travel, that's all gone now.

You know the funny part, that top picture really isn't that impressive... Marn has the same picture of his wagon doing it!!! LOL

But... This is a friend's truck that I know from High School... This truck I have by the books is every bit as built and actually with better parts and components and better shocks. And this wasn't a one time hit, he did this quite a few times! LOL



Its' funny cause the picture looks rad yet the video, doesn't look like anything special.











ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Solidworks is the cad system I use at work. It's an amazing program and does awesome things!!! One MAJOR issue though, I'll be drawing a part and it has this capability where it'll show you a preview of what you're trying to do before you hit the checkmark button to accept it. This happens a TON!!! The preview will be PERFECT!!! It's EXACTLY what I want!!! Hit the checkmark to accept it and it throws some error saying it can't do that for whatever reason!!! WTF???!!!! You can show me exactly what I'm trying to do and what I want you to do but then you tell me you can't do it? Oh is this what you're looking for? That's nice, too bad... I don't have that! LOL Stupid effing program! LOL

There are a lot of local clubs, some of the most popular are Vegas Valley 4 Wheelers, Nevada Backroaders and Total Karnage.

That being said the one I prefer is a relatively newer club (by comparison) WarMachines702.com; there are no meetings, no dues, no hierarchy, and no drama. Plus they wheel almost as much as they talk about it! I know they have a run scheduled tomorrow and another scheduled on the 21st. I would definitely recommend the one on the 21st (if you have to decide between the two) as it is slated as being the club "Christmas run" so more folks will show up and you will get a better idea of who is who.

Life is precious and can be taken away at any minute guys.

don't take it for granted, and just make sure you let your loved ones know they are loved whenever you get the chance.

Lost a friend/coworker today, not super close friends, but we've been to her house for dinner and I've seen her every week for a few years.

She found out she had some health issues about a week ago.

Recommendation please: keep my 4 speed or look for a T-5? Will be offroaded, just not Rubicon or jumps like the truck above.
Decidung to forego the registration and tear it down to the frame. Thinking of setting up a build page to document everything over the next few yrs. I want to keep it streetable as a DD. Instead of bombarding this forum, feel frer to pm me

Which 4 speed? It's always been my experience that I don't like to swap major components unless I have to.
