    OK so I picked it up last night and I gotta say.....I was super surprised as to how wide the body is on it. I am used to trucks that the wheels hang out. Now to play the waiting game on good weather for break in. At least I picked up the sway bar kit for it to keep me busy with it till I can go out and break it in..

    Hey Fairlane, them pics bring a little tear to my eye, when my baby was brand new (a month ago, LOL!), mine is the same color... Now a month later, she looks like she's been around the block one too many times... sitting in a corner with a smashed front bulkhead, broken front body mount and snapped bellcrank... it is better if no one asks why...

    Ok, Got the sway bars installed last night. Now if the weather is on my side today I can do break-in and then tune her up and see what she can do.

    OK so I finished break in....I gotta say I am impressed with it except for the junk wheels. I have 2 broken wheels on it. Not enough to keep me from bashing it some more but one is cracked and the other is missing a complete chunk. Other than that I am really pleased. This this after a lil tuning will pull a really nice wheelie. Kinda cool seeing a wide heavy looking truck riding out a wheelie through the parking lot!! Now onto breaking in the new engine in the 4-Tec.....
