All you have to do is cut everything off and start from scratch. :)
Hey let's just start a car company if we're going to be dumb and stubborn ::wink::

Thanks guys! That was 2 years of planning! I just got it back so I don't have many pictures of the final product. I'll have more this weekend I hope. Working long hours every day.

I've got a ton of making of videos on my youtube channel though.

Youtube - Metalgwar videos

Here are a some other pics.

It turned out awesome, Erik. I remember you telling me over the years here about all you were going to do and in my head, I kept saying, "I'd like to see that". Well, now I see it and I freakin love it. You going back to black?

Nice vids. Looks a little stiff. Spring rate too high?

That steering linkage is very interesting.

You might want to look into getting nitrile boots for those open ball joints (spherical rod ends or heim joints). I can't seem to find a good link to a company. But I use to kill those joints on my car till I got a set with boots on them. Looks something like this

Very possible. Took a wild guess for the spring rate. After the springs relax a little we might change them. Thanks for the suggestion!

Thanks man! It took a long time to get it like this. For the time being yes I am daily driving it. As soon as I pay my card back down I am getting a 2nd car so I can retire my truck to just going off road.

Eric, you were supposed to get the second car first so you did not have to borrow one for however many months it took to build that behemoth! :D

Yea right..lol I can barely afford either! My truck would not have survived following Nomad long enough to get the car first.
