I don't care what anybody else says, I think the Indy 340 lights are awesome little sleds.I know a couple of people who have the older ones, and they are great.I have a '00 Indy 340 and it's so easy to throw around the trails.Don't say your sled isn't anything nice, it may be a 340, but it will be out there rippin up the trails just like the big new sleds.

Thats why I use quarts of derusto or rustolium and lay it on heavy with a brush.My 69 Bronco has done lots of wheelin and most of the paint is still there.

I don't like Jeeps but holy $#%% man that sounds nice. I have an 85 Blazer I am gonna put either Rancho RSX or Trailmaster SSV shocks on and a 4" lift. THen Dynomax headers and race mufflers(technically not street legal). Has not really aggressive 33s on it now. Probably get a set of those wheel spacers to get a better stance on it so it looks and handles better.

if i were you get the rsx or the rs 9000's tons of flex allowed and get the dynomax bullet, they are a little loud but sound reall nice and give you more power, and also make sure you dont get to big of wheel spacers cuz you wont have enough stud left, i have a set on my 77 chevy with 35" boggers cuz when i turn all the way to the right it hits the steerting arm hope i helped u on your project.

I know all those things and I had them all planned :). Shocks I have been planning were Rancho RSXs, the DynoMax Bullets were the mufflers I had planned, and I know about the tires thing so I was gonna get spacers. Though when that happens you can do nice donuts :) I may however get the ProComp shocks instead since a set of 4 ES 9000s is only $130. And 4 RSXs is like $160+. Yeah I will probably get the ES9000 Pro Comps since summit anyway claims that the shocks are for 0-4" lift trucks. So that means I can put them on my truck now and when I can afford my new springs I can use the same shocks(since I will be doing a 4") on the lift! Can't do that with the RSXs.

ok, I'm in the middle of an axle swap on my comanche (nice truck) but I'm havein to put the axle beneath the leafs instead of above. now to keep the mount point for the shock the same, it'd have to be RIGHT beneath the leafs, but I can't put it their, 'cause the axle is out of a cherokee, it's about 3.5-4 inches from the old mount point, to the point the mount from the cherokee has (at the bottom of axle, which is below leafs. should I mount there? or flip the old mount upside down and put it above the leafs and mount there? the shocks are aftermarket rancho's, but the old owner put them in, not me, so I dunno if they have tolerance for a lift or not. thanks if ya can help, and if not, meh, whatever, I"ll figure it out.

they may be called snowmobiles, but hiding behind that is a cheap excuse to not grass drag.

ya, I figured a way to use the stock mounts in the stock location and keep the lift : ) infact, this makes it bigger : )

only by like, 1/4" but hey, every little bit helps right?
