Anyone seen this on ebay?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...&category=6763 Does that look safe to yall or would yall wheel it like that? To me that looks like a disaster waiting to happen. Those leafs look like they couldn't bend farther if they had to.

you know what I mean chief. The drivetrain looks like the least thing to worry about. Hell it's as safe as it can be right now w/o the drivetrain. Once it's in look out ground, here comes a body.

Hence the winky ;-)

Really not enough visible in the pics for me to make an honest evaluation. It looks like it has wider axles, it's definitely SOA with lift shackles, doesn't appear to have a body lift. Dump the lift shackles and put the drivetrain in and it'll squat down and might not be a bad platform for a mud runner.

Look at the front-on photo. Looking at the fenders, hood, and grill, something looks pooched. Rolled or smacked?

How the heck are you supposed to rig steering for that thing. I bet he has a serious case of bump steer too.

I didn't notice this until just now. Looks like the rear end is leaking quite a bit and also the power steering up front as well. Well he got a bid. I reckon $4000 grand isn't that bad. It's got a good base components just needs some tweaking and lowering.

And you'd roll it like you stole it too.

Of course that would be if it ran.. Which all the parts are sitting on a garage floor, then of course you stil have the steering issue to worry about.

You know, all that needs to be a perfect moron mobile would a 3" body lift to go with it..
