I have no idea on the value of something like that but it looks pretty built. I just glanced though.

Sorry Marn, Progress was made last night...



If any of you have an excuse to go by TJ Flores shop Champion Motorsports, do it!!! Talk about a badass toy box of a shop! DROOL!!! His ultra 4 car is so nice! He had a older FJ40 that was on 37's with coilovers and long arms under it. They were swapping a LS into it.




Tonight's goal, set rear of truck back on the ground and maybe start figuring out the rear cage work changes I want to make.

Hoping to button up my cooler issue tomorrow. Had to order a piece for it that they thought would only take a day or two to get. At that point I'm really officially waiting on others to get me parts to button the thing up! I'll just move on to other stuff that's still moving forward but actually isn't needed to get it running.


Anyone have a '92-94 F150 for like $500 they want to get rid of? LOL

Yeah, because they have more than 30k wrapped up in it and aren't selling at a price that would allow someone to flip it for profit, they must be insane.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Ahhhh, was reminded I'm alive today. Been a while since I've been so pissed that the veins in my neck started twitching and my voice kind of sputtered to the same rate as my pulse!!! I love work!!!! Gotta love when the new boss flat out lies to the general manager about an argument the two of us had yesterday. Luckily there was 2 others in the room during the fun yesterday and they both said the same thing I did cause it's the effing truth... Go ahead, spin it to try and make it look different then it was.

30k for that Nissan is actually really good. I'd buy that combo if I had that laying around.

I gotta give props to Puck Powr and sometimes Khris.

I broke my truck again and had to drop it off: I was gonna drive one of our best *** old Chevys but it doesn't have AC and I bothers about it so my boss said I could take this big bastard that we just bought (still doesn't have logos so it isn't stocked for our irrigation tech and ts just sitting.

I been driving it for like half an hour and it sucks! Talk a of blind spots! Also stopping a 2500 van is a hell of a lot different than a freakin ranger. Like I drive the big trucks sometimes and that **** is no problem but damn this thing blows! Lol.

The blind spot is definitely eye opening on mine being that I don't drive it often but that's my only shock when driving it. Other then that, mine rides awesome, handles great, a/c rocks, no complaints. LOL

I drove a van for a couple of days when moving the other month. I thought my reaction was going to be the same as Marn's but I actually didn't mind it. The braking did suck tho, gotta say.
