I'm liking it.

Ditch the coilovers, setup the torsions and you will be happier.

I'm damn impressed that a 14 year old id this committed (correct me if I am wrong?)

thanks ditch, Are you a packer fan?
Heres some more rust pics, pretty much every hole you see i can stick the end of a ratchet thru. the pic of the front end, and that pile of dirt is about 1/2 of one side of the frame head area, the frame head felt solid tho.
You can tell this thing was never cleaned!!


^^^ that one is where the bottom of my rear fender is being pulled away

Heres the front end.....its heavy. I suggest if you want it that I strip it down to the bare beam then take it over and get it weighed. That means no torsion bars, trailing arms brakes or drums. Or tell me what you want.......
