Yeah no kidding! On our way out there I probably told him 10 times how lucky he is to live way out there.

I'm stoked on it, took it for another little drive and its a lot more comfortable than the 720. Doesn't feel like you're riding on the frame and is much quieter.

I'll trade ya the hardbody for it Farmer haha
I feel like the car selling and buying market isn't the greatest during the holidays, someone will want those cars by this spring!

Drove the snake pit in the snow the other day and it did really well with the tires being pretty new. Its surprising how well it handles when you slide it around!

Well we finally moved and I have a garage to store the truck and work on it more comfortably!

Draynor is going to come down sometime in Feb or March and we are going to run a full new exhaust since my cobbled together one has had some issues. I'm still deciding what I want to use for a muffler but I'm upgrading it to 2 1/4 the whole way back no matter what. We are also going to remove the bed and c notch the frame so I can finally go a bit lower. I still have about an inch before bump stops in the rear and could go about 2 inches lower up front, but it rides so terrible. So it will also be getting drop spindles so I can keep the ride quality decent. I have the money set aside for everything I just need to order it and start the process, so updates won't be too far behind this post!

Sweet! Nice place.


Yeah you saw my old place, and this one is only $150 more! We were getting ripped off at the last place.
