Ian,  Thanks for the heads-up, sadly I don't have Spike now that I have moved (cable guy had the correct filter this time).  I really miss the "MXC?" show.

I will get this next part out of the way so the other don't feel the need.

 :flamer:  :flamed:

p.s. I have only seen your show a couple of times (Aluminum Tub Jeep), but enjoyed what I saw.  It was way above my budget, but cool nonetheless.
1989 4Runner: Dual Ultimate (Inchworm front & Marlin 4.70 rear), Marlin Twin Stick, 1200-lb clutch, 4.88 R&P, Aussie Front, Detroit rear, 30-spline Longs, Long hub gears, ARP hub and knuckle studs & 35x12.50 Cooper STT PRO tires.  Marlin rear bumper & sliders.  FROR front bumper.  SAS with Alcan springs & Rancho 9000XL shocks.  Budbuilt Bolt-on traction bar.  Custom Interior Cage by Those Guys Rod and Customs.

I caught most of it, very cool. Why did you guys go carburated instead of EFI though?

Until this year, if you had EFI or propane, there was a 5pt. penalty

Watched the show, Ian.
I was wondering why Wyotech sounded so familiar, the architectural firm I work for is doing a project for them. I believe it is being built in Daytona.
Pretty cool stuff.
Life is like a bowl of beer flavored chocolate covered dog turds.. it makes no sense. :pokinit:

Where is the Mammoth?
