Chevy 350 with Edelbrock MP fuel injection

This is the motor with the Multiport EFI Edelbrock system. I also went with full hydraulic steering.

Looks great, did they install an entire RockKrawler coilover kit or just use parts from them. I have seen this system work if it is the full kit and you will be happy. I want to see trail pics

Yes, this is the full, complete Rock Krawler 8" coilover stretch system. My wheelbase on this YJ is 106", that is more than I bargained for. I wanted a 90 deg. approach angle, and a 90 deg. departure angle. The front axle is not as close to the front to accomplish that, but it is close enough. I can always approach the straight ups, a little at an angle. This kit should be very affective for what I want to do with it. I think this is very simular to the kit that "Absolute Offroad" has on his Jeep.

Yes, Axel it does look very nice. with motor to boot also....cant wait to hear some sound bytes of that motor @ 6500 RPM goin through the gears..... I got your message this afternoon, and called back, but must have missed ya....will call ya in the morn....You will LOVE that Edelbrock System........NOW... I think it needs a 125HP NX (Nitrous Express) bottle kit on it, for those last min sand drags......

Big vs. Bigger

Just when you think you are building something big........they park another vehicle beside you that makes you say, WOW.

I have 42" Irocks on my Jeep, and the Ford has 49" tires.

rope ladder

I didn't see any ladder, and I was sure curious to know how in the world one would get into the truck. Maybe they carry a mini trampoline in the bed of the truck, but that would even be hard to reach. You can't even use the tire to step up on, as it is too far away from the door. Your guess is as good as mine.

That is a good analogy.........I would think he would overturn, just jumping a curb.......lol. I would not want to wheel with my center of gravity being that high.

That is completly a pavement princess.............lol
