He never had a website AFAIK...
Either you dig the Pirate old threads or ask me all the build pics


but I have several CDRs to flip through before finding them!

Or PM him...

Bill goes by Frankenrover on the Pirate board, you can dig up pics there but I don't think he has a site.

I bought this set up from Jesse. It sits in its boxes in really nice shape from about 01 when I bought it used from him.

"OME This vehicle was provided and driven by Jesse Rodocker of Washington and utilizes commercially available suspension components.

This vehicle was the least modified of the six test vehicles in that it used the SG drop kit in the rear, and OME springs and LTR shocks front and back. The SG drop kit allows for several more inches of droop at the shock, which compensates for the loss of upward travel due to spring bind in the OME rear springs. The front OME springs are stiffer than stock and the rear OME springs are softer."

Ron,

This was Jesse's truck right? If so, it now belongs to a buddy of mine, used to be here in GA, but now in Northern Cali.

Yup, that is the truck. He ran the whole thing with stock axles too. I have the rears from when he upgraded and they don't have a bit of twist in them either.

Never got to wheel with him but heard he was a great driver. Didn't he move to Australia or something?

Sorry for the OT conversation.
