  15. Yeah goes up about 6/7 inches and with the engine and gearbox raise I’ll have more clearance than before

  17. That is well slammed. Impressive. An amazing job.


    Evil question ....
    Do you have a game plan for how to get it onto a low loader with no air pressure ?

    I assume the air bags lift it enough to get a jack under it if you do have air pressure for changing a wheel , or getting another Bollinger cork wire on the gearbox coupler.

  18. I know Denis made his own custom front tubs i assume you'll be doing something similar.
    I'm looking forward to seeing it at Techenders mate it looks brill already.[​IMG]
