Re: The Box (The whole box)

I feel dirty just towing it. Unfortunantly it hasn't fallen off yet. Even the truckers keep calling it a jeep.

Re: The Box (The whole box)

Hahaha thanks guys.

when I originally went to sell it I was going to use part of the money for an engagement and with the rest I was gonna pick up an old cj and beat it. Well I figured out the ring situation and always missed the open top from my old YJ. Plus I was jealous of all the fun you guys were having with the skinny pedal. I plan in keeping with my light foot style in the rocks but now I can stick my foot in it and not worry about it. Only catch with it is that he had an LS1 in it before and wanted $3K on the deal for it. He pulled that and traded straight up for the TPI, its got a spun rod bearing which needs to be fixed along with a couple loose ends. Got all the parts just needs the time. The motor is actually in the bed which is probably why its squating in the rear and sittin tall in the front. I can't wait to get it running though.

sweet, that sucker would be NASTY with an ls1, the tpi should be enough for you... if not theres a guy in knoxville with complete LM7 motors (gen3 5.3's) with all the goodies on the shelf for around 700

Re: The Box (The whole box)

Go to youtube and search "aggro sluice" and you can see it with the LS1 and different body tub.

The guy was finishg up a rebuild on it when he went to sell it which is why it still has some odds and ends to finish. It sounded real good with that vette motor, woulda been nice if he would left it in there.

Re: The Box (The whole box)

Doug, I'm probably gonna have to take you up on that bud.

Dan, I don't think I'll be as apprehensive about using the skinny on this one. Its a little more heavy duty then The Box was. Probably won't jump it or anything, but def won't be afraid of a good bump every once in a while.
