Also thanks for the photo adjustment
At that point, you might have to have spacers for the subframes fabbed up so that your cv angle doesn't start getting to high and killing your half shafts.

Sweet Baja!

Actually, the Scorpion kit came with all the subframe spacers, which I installed, so when I use the extra Subtle Solution strut spacers I shouldn't be more than an 1" over the stock angles......I Hope

That sir......is doing it right. I'm having trouble deciding between raising it and going braids with taller tires or going 1" lower and rotas with wider tires. Between this and the meaty thread I'm completely torn =)

Compromise. Go with the non-crap rims(obviously the Braids are the non-crap) and keep it stock height. Dilemma solved. Oh, and thanks!!

My co-driver for the Rally New York Summer Rallysprint and my driver side front tire after driving 2 miles on a flat at 40mph (as fast as I could go on the stage with no tire pressure).




3 turns before the blowout.

That bumper looks really clean (and my clean I don't mean in a shiny way man, I need to give you props for it on this forum too! I like how it follows factory lines, but is NOT factory!! (I'm on DI, and lots of others, mostly as suparu or superu on other forums; BTW did you make it to Rosco's yet?

A place behind the motorpool on Ft Hood.

Edit also remember to put windows up before, BEFORE, powersliding in mud.

Thanks again!! Nah, haven't gotten out to Roscos or that taco place you recommended either, going to wait till after I get through the next body fat test. Maybe I'll check one of the places out on my birthday after though. I would've recognized you as soon as you mentioned Roscos, lol.

The lines were part of the way I drew it up for the builder, no easy feat on these newer body styles. Wish I had one of older models with the rectangular headlights or even a blobeye, then the bumper would come right up to the bottom of the headlights easier.

You're doing it wrong, I guarantee you could've gotten it muddier. I know, cause mine is covered in Texas mud. That looks like the east side of Hood, am I right?

NO! You want the UR's. You want something with flexibility and forgiveness.


UR's FTW!
i went with the xl sized flaps from www.rokblokz.com they are cheaper than the rally armor and hold up way better!!!

rally armor are the biggest pieces of crap mudflaps. way too thin in my opinion. www.primitiveracing.com has some of the thickest youll find. paul there made mine they are one of a kind being that mine are side mounted on a wagon. no one made them for wagons so he custom made mine.
