Woody and my cars, I took it out for a little wheeling trip last Sunday, it did good, other than the clutch slips a little and it over heated, it seems to dissapear water some how. Other than hitting a huge concrete block it seemed to do good....................... just more things to work out.

Did that alignment work out for you, how does she handle?
I'm afraid that mystery water leak may be blown HG's.

The alignment never happened, Yohn was told that it was too modified to be on the rack......... I agree:grin:, As for the mystery leak, I dont want to think that at all..........................:-\ but there is a chance.........

It rides soooo nice, its nicer than my stock wagon, as for shaking it does but I think it because of the bad front axles....................

same here i get the shakes around 80mph my fronts click a little when the car is cold.. i dont believe the currnet rims and tires on mine are the best for higher speeds either

i though about putting the new humvee shock strips on my ru to help the vibration

Not sure who makes the lights, Greg (Zefy) got them for me up in Canada at Princess Auto a long time ago, like WCSS7 so I dont know much about them.............

The rear bumper is going to get about 2" removed off each end, it looks kinda dumb right now..............
