Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

You may not need it, but you WANT it.



Follow up: my bad, I have a 5 INCH lift, not a 5 FOOT lift. Disregard.

I saw Traes truck at MAR. It looked sick. I would do the same if it would fit in my garage.... I really liked the LED rear light setup..

37x12.50 on 16s, slight rub at full compression at the top of the spring, on the cup. That's really all I have on my computer as far as pictures. Thanks Randy, I really wanted to see that silver beast at MAR.

Yes, I'll admit it- this is Trevor's handiwork and it's beautiful. I probably put his kid through college, but it's worth it.

Our new garage doors are 9 1/2 feet at my dad's house, so I have some room to play with . If I sell the classic then I'll have some money to play with, but I'll need some HD axles before I do that much lift

Go out and take some pictures when you can. It looks great. Some more details would be nice. I like Defenders with good size shoe's.

You can get a good used 16' open trailer for $700 if you take your time with it. Take it all the way and never look back! We need some more Rock Defenders. I think we are up to at least 6 that I know of, and growing every day now that the price is finally dropping a bit.

Trae, I was riding it the big Rangie with the dead battery at that water crossing when we saw you. My truck will be back at MAR next year for sure...

Christ,

Thats my son and I in the thumbnail that Ade posted from MAR.
I was checking out Trae's masterpeice- had no idea I was putting out that body language, arms folded, sneer, and belly fully pushed out.
I must have been jealous !

You get a real feel for the size of that truck- I'm 6'6 300lbs and the thing looks like I need a ladder to get in.

MT/R's are a very heavy tire. My 37's (measured 36), were heavier than my 40's.

Bad place to post it I know, but I have a set of RTE 5 inch springs I won at the FLRC rally that I would really like to get rid of, used the drop cones but the 4 springs are new and have never been installed.

Also have castor corrected control arms and or castor corrected bushings. Will now post these in teh for sale section with a price.
