Man, If I end up keeping the Runner (Looking like YES...) I would love to go on some easy trails with you guys. If I keep it, I'll be doing a 2.5" OME Lift...so I should be able to somewhat keep up with you guys!

We go to pretty easy spots. most of the places we have been going a stock rig with flexy suspension will make it through. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
we have been going once a weekend maybe twice if theres nothing to do,so if anyone wants to go hit me up

Gabe,Never thought of you to be the crawling type.Where did you find that thing. What mods
From what i can tell Trail gear SAS swap maybe lif if it was an 85 but the frame looks to be IFS style.maybe 14inch hoops in the front.hubs(dont know why they wouldnt have used the stocks.)Pretty sweet from what i see. BTW yota yard is way over priced now that the dudes wife took over

Reminds me of some of the old phat jeeps yotas.

Damion's old rig before the body turned in to a pop can

Re: (TheRealCarbonfiberGabe.)

well looks like my cover is blown.

Saw my last post and the story eh? Good ownage.
Well hopefully things here will remain quiet and peaceful as they have been over the last few months.
Picked up the green monster late in the summer. It is fun. Double transfer case. No gas pedal needed to climb when I have it all engaged, perfect 2 mph roll.
As for the GTI its actually not parked in front. Good guess though.
Lets keep things adult here ok?

Re: (MrPillowPants)

22re is a good motor.They last a long ass time,Will run on there side and parts are easy to come by for them.
Id be interested to see the rear suspension of that thing and how the driveshafts were done. I have a feeling im going to be having problems with my front shaft if i dont figure it all out soon. Im going to be running Some pretty trick shock mounts
i have to figure the rear out still but i hope i can find something that will let the rear dop out pretty far.
Any rubbing issues under hard stuffs with that thing.38.5 is huge!!! I was going to run 38's but anything bigger then 35's people are braking stuff.
