    Stupidity should hurt!
    the problem is that all too often one persons stupidity tends to hurt others rather than the stupid one. this being a good example, the stupid guy that made it is out of the picture bragging about what a great job he did making that 4X4, wile some one else's wife gets run over by it when the steering fails.
    i don't mind when a person is stupid enough to jump off a bridge to high into the water and goes splat. stupid did, stupid hurt, all is as it should be. but when he jumps off and lands on me the the kids as we head out for a day of fishing, stupid did and others pay. not good.
    this has way too much opportunity for the wrong ones to be hurt.
    thanks for the help

      It's done for now!

      It is what it is. Mudfest started today and the car is going up in the morning. I'll post better pics in the daylight. Once Mudfest is over the car is coming back to re-visit a few issues that need attention to the details. But anyways here she is.

            Without seeing what he did, it looks like the same car as before.

                  Here's a few more of the somewhat finished project. It will be coming back to get a different pitman arm to drop the angle of the tierod, sway bar links and a few other modifications, make a new transfer case mount and to redo all the nasty stuff under the rear end.

                  This is not by any means a finished product, we went with making it functional for this weekend and will re-visit the front end when he brings it back.

                        Okay Dave,

                        I gotta ask......How many apple crates did you need to stand on so you could paint the hood & the roof????

                        Couldn't resist.
                        Later,

                            The roof???????????????????? D@mn, I knew I forgot something.

                            Besides we don't have apple crates down here, we use the plastic bin boxes for oranges and grapefruit.

                                Fun4now is right. Stupidity should only hurt for the stupid. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. But at least in this case somebody stepped in and fixed the problem before this stupidity hurt someone else.
