Just continue the build thread. If you cant handle some joking and BS then you should just go ahead and die. Life isnt worth it if youre gonna be serious 100% of the time. Everything has its place and some things to learn from it. Ill be watching.

And with that said im taking bets on who gets done first. Him or Nick.

Kirbys73F100 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
If I have too much of a problem, I'll trade my brand new 53s for a bogger in a smaller size. There's a lot of weight to be saved by running a normal offroad tire/wheel.

Dan, Nick did post for a little while when your around. (I'm pretty sure anyways.)

And i'm about 98% sure Kirby will finish before Nick. Isn't Nick's like 4 years in the making??? :P

What kind of r-tard would trade 53" Michelins for a set of boggers? First off...the Michelins are cheap tires and boggers are certainly not. Ive heard of guys buying the 53s for around $500 a set here lately and 39.5 Boggers cost about $500 per tire. Secondly Michelins are crappy offroad and boggers are certainly not. Besides the cheap price and long lasting tread design/compound I dont see much going for these tires on anything but a mallcrawler.

Nick left in the spring of '08 with the rest of the Minions. I talk with him from time to time and he is still making progress on the truck.

Im 198% sure that when Nick finally finishes the truck it will be better built than most of the other trucks on rocks. He didnt cut the corners that most do.

Yeah I know, but he was back not too long ago wasn't he? Obviously didn't stick around long though.

Normally when you buy a set of take outs they come with 2 rears/1front since that is what come on the trucks. Most guys sell it all or nothing.

Are you planning on running the street with these or strictly offroad?
If offroad only ditch the 53's and get a set R1's.

Chances are you will break them easier with the 53's because of the weight.

C'mon Kirby! Progress you lazy *******.

Oh and Tinian, still want those rocks? Haha. Sadly they're not selling.

Sold the winch for $500, selling that 413 big block for $350, selling the top for $300..
That is already a profit on that 6x6.
...now someone needs to buy the frickin' rocks!


Hell, maybe if Kirby's truck looks good i'll do a Rockwell build. But like I said in that other thread.. just need a good platform to build from.
