Thanks! :) it was fun


When i was done building the cage i pulled it completly off with a forklift and welded it 100%, None of the joints broke on that flop. But next time i will build the main supports with DOM and the rest HREW so its stiffer.  Im thinking about getting rid of the bed and doing a tube flatbed now....

What parts are you waiting for? I didnt see you at the last roundup but i should this time. My rig is still down because my steering box i rebuilt and tapped is no good anymore. So i have to do it all over again.

Well i made it to the rubicon on saturday for a day run. Got my steering box fixed finally. My truck feels like its going to fall apart when i drive it on the freeway now. My header is leaking, i get horrible vibs from the rear d-shaft that i spent 300$ rebuilding, and my tranny howls really loud when i let off the gas going 60+. I really need a trailer and tow rig now...because i dont feel like fixing this junk. But anyways it did great offroad.

Funny what happened last week. I go out at like 7 in the morning on a monday and the seats in my truck are pushed forward. So i think wtf??? As i go around to the passenger side i notice wires hanging out the half door. Keep in mind my truck is parked litterly 10-15 feet from my front door. I never thought someone would be soo stupid to actually steal the 10 year old orion AMP OUT OF MY TRUCK!!! :maddest: :censored: It was mounted on the back of the cab, they sat there and cut all the wires and pulled all 4 screws out to take an Amp thats worth 10$ at its best!! On top of that they took my faceplate that was under my seat and not my deck!! What asses! So i had to rewire everything and throw a another deck in there but this time i made it impossible for it to be removed by a thief.. This was the 3rd TIME i got ripped off this year at my house. Last was my car that was cleaned out and before that was my fab tools taken from my garage. I know its someone that lives around me and scopes my things out. Id like them to come and try to take my :pokinit: now! Good luck! Im just venting here it just pisses me off!! I hate thieves and its getting old not being able to keep whats mine. The First time this dude tryed to break into my truck we cought him and he ran off like a girl thingy. Maybe he came back but who knows?
