    Define: out performs? I have wheeled with multiple light weight rigs. All of whom told me about the far superior and multiple benefits from wheeling light weight rigs. To this day they have never been able to go or do anything I wasn’t stupid enough to do in my big dumb overweight bouncer...

    Day 5 was get it into a roller cause the next morning my ass was headed south to warmer weather. I went with a radius arm front suspension for simplicity. Went with generic bushings at axle and 1.25 heims at the frame. I stopped by off-road connection and talked with Keith. (Who is awesome for...

    Tracker is rotted from the knees down. But everything worked on it like it should before I got a hold of it. I drained the old gas, checked fluids and drove it for a while to make sure it was a decent rig. if I haven’t mentioned it someone of HL that I’ve never met in person donated the...

    Update: people In the off-road community are awesome. I had a buddy donate a Sami front axle. I had another buddy who gave some rims that fit the goofy tracker/Sami pattern. I drove to another buddies house and destroyed his garage for 4 days. Original plan was to load everything up I’ve...

    Reconditioning shock bodies / rust?

    Damn good ideal on refinishing not sure where to go in Bham though... I’ve always been under the assumption that covers keep the moisture in more than keeping it out.
