Yeah they are great, the work is top notch. I'm completely new to this but I have been mountain biking and riding bmx most of my life. After a few injuries over the last few years it's time to switch my medium.

Ok, so you are building one really fine rig. Are you going with beefed up 44's or going to 60's? And what are you planning for with the LS1? Set a world land speed record on a hill climb? Don't get me wrong, I love your rig, saw it in the shop a while back. But you throw in an LS1 and we're gonna have to play chase

How do you fit 37's with only 3" of lift? I'm running 4" long arm and 1" body and still rub with 35's

Uh, Brenden, "he's" a "she". Also to run 37's with that lift requires sheet metal work along with the hi lines

Besides that's not even fair to Dan. If he's lead he leaves me in the dust. If B. drops an LS1 in her buggy I won't even see her dust...

Who cares? My Mom's name was Bernice so as far as I'm concerned he's a she. Besides, who would name a Jeep Bernice??? Your Jeep's name is Celtic gibberish, that I can understand, but Bernice?

The front is a Dynatrac prorock 44 and the rear is a Dynatrac prorock 60. Aev big brake kit front Ford F-150 brake conversion rear. I won't ever trailer this rig and I will be driving to Moab, Durango, Steamboat etc. and driving a Jeep this heavy is slow going uphill. Plus I live near Aspen Park and will take it into Denver often, want something that won't be a dog.

It's a low center of gravity build, it's more stable and drives great on the road. Look up low center of gravity or LCOG and you will find plenty. If you look up the freak it has 42" tires on 3" of total lift and can do anything. My Jeep can do any trail in Colorado, I'm just not up to hard stuff at this point.

Do you know Jeff at Rokmen? I might have been there when you were there months ago? Not sure.

Could be, I do remember seeing your rig there. Nice, nice setup. I was up there about that time to pick up a gas tank skid. Actually I will be heading up there later this week to pick up a t-case skid plate. About ready to get into that whole can of worms :-)

Patience, grasshopper. All in good time. When some of the loonies around here start giving you a workout you may wish it was back in the shop... If a guy named Wanderlust invites you on a run say no...
