Bruce finally got his sas done so we decided to take it for a quick burn up to stave but ran into Dirka Dave and went to Davis instead. Everything fortunately stayed together... other than a rear shock... and a caliper pin.

:D doing it on my budget was a pain think i hit 3 grand total in truck including truck and parts truck
id probably buy trail gear ifs elimination kit to do it again think it would be cheeper and less labour:dontknow: definatly cheeper im not far off kit price
and still need shocks shock hoops and spacers for wheels:( so in end cash outllay will be more than kit
but spread out over several months
