You are the man. I knew you'd end up with a FC.

So....6.0 LS?:thumbsup:

I know how much you like your horsepower.... Let me throw a little fuel on that fire!:evil:

So I'm buying it site unseen but supposedly it's an Arizona car without any rust and sat under a shed for last 20 years. From all the pictures I got and I couldn't find any rust on it. This one just might keep its Patina look.

Daisy has claimed full ownership of my rear seat. It's gone for good now because she will eventually chew it to pieces. She went swimming and now she's tired.

Finally got the engine for the Jeep Forward Control. It's going to need a lot of cleaning up. The 5.3L came out of a 2002 Z71 4WD with 120,000 miles.

I'm sure tempted to jump on this 6.0L donor.
If I didn't have two donor 5.3 Yukon's in the yard I probably would.

4 LINK REAR

I think it's time Stumper Jumper gets a 4 link rear. Under a hard take-off I can feel and hear the rear spring wrap and the U-joints moaning for some relief. I'm ready to 4 link the rear but I have never done one before. So who makes the best 4link kits with adjustable coil overs. I need to see pictures too since I can't read. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Otherwise Stump Jumper is doing fine. She has become my daily driver and it's been over 2 years and 8k miles since the restoration with no break downs yet.

I use KCD components on my Dune Jeeps and my competition chassis. He is the best in the business for hooking you up on asphalt, mud, or sand. Extremely easy to work with and he has builder assist programs for first timers. Most bang for the buck out there in my opinion. He is a "One Stop Shop" also. He's the best of the best.

Tell him you are in the Scrambler group with me. He will treat you right. :wave:
