Hahah define stupid, so far i don't really beat it, sometimes i floor it here and there when i get bored or something but i don't do much that would stress it. I got dual sway bars, if i took them off with my stock suspension what would it do? I had been thinking long and hard about doing it but it seems like a bad idea. I do want more flex out of it for the small things i do but i don't want to tip over going around a turn...

Is started doing some painting on my top today but the wind was just too much to continue. It might have a slightly glossier look in the top vs the sides of it due to walmart only having flat and full gloss 96 cent spray cans... The flat black looked more like primer on there so for now it will look a bit goofey. Maybe tomorrow when my step dad is at work my and my mom can move the top in the the garage and i can paint it in there. Doing this outside is nice cause i'm in the sun but it sucks but the wind makes it very difficult...

Then just disconnect the bar if you're going to do some off-roading, and keep it for daily driving.

I Might try that, i figured if i take them off i will clean them up and put them in storage until i need them again. I figured if and when i do a lift I won't have to use them. I don't know yet though, these are mere ideas.

Just found this. This would get mine on the road in a big hurry. Called and left a message. Hopefully the stars are aligned and it is still available.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

Got a call back from the owner. She says it has rust on the rear wheel wells and the drivers door. She told me the bad side is the side pictured.

From the looks of the picture it is in way better shape than mine. Mine may end up being a parts truck for this one.

I guess it's a boyfriend/girlfriend thing. They go there different ways he's going to pick it up, decides he's into bikes and wants to sell it. It's in her name and he's okay with selling it. Bing, bang, boom it could be in my driveway this time tomorrow.

She said it's been parked for a little over a year and that it was a driver when parked.
