    wouldn't that be cool with 54" tires, 3406 Cat, and diesel-electric awd? UAV my tushy. If it weren't for the insulation, I could hear mother nature squeal as I stomped on her flowers.

            Rogue Fabrication makes all sorts of cool stuff, are in Oregon so quick shipping, and I need a tube bender. 2 out of 3 ain't bad. I just have one thing to say before we start F*ck FedEx. They are the most backstabbing, worthless group of a company there is... the short is there was a cold wind blowing up to where their dangly bits were and they didn't deliver to my house.... and didn't knock on the door to get a signature... yeah.

            However, now that that annoyance is done...
            bits


            base plate


            instructions... funny, the first picture, they are on the very bottom of it - after the annoyance of delivery I was holding my breath hoping that I didn't have to try to find assembly instructions on google.



            assembly begins


            washers welded on


            and starting to go together... tomorrow wheeling, but I should have enough time to finish dry assembly

              I was just thinking.... what would they think of it with a Big Bad Buford motor and a beefed tranny in it... Maybe even a procharger and EFI for those high altitude runs where the air is rare???

                      I suppose the fine print is there were 2 things. A pcv valve and an oil fill cap. Not sure the rock method would have done much good if the pcv valve didn't fit.

                        youde be suprised. line that sucker up over the hole in the valvecover
                        and give it a couple good whacks like youre spiking a football in the
                        endzone and im sure that badboy would slide right on in there......

                        can we try it on one of YOUR cars though? mine are good for now.

                              the Corvette got a bit of love today too... *hack*


                              I'm going to be a bit annoyed if I have to pull the sidepipes off to fix that lower corner

                                being truly fat and lazy, i would attempt to smear body filler in there
                                with a putty knife, then wrap the same putty knife or a paint stir stick
                                with sandpaper to reach in there and hopefully not have to drop that
                                thundercannon to get at it.........

                                just me though. im dedicated to the disease.
