Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming to the Lord,
"Wow, What a ride!"

Looks like you may have run that truck once or twice before. :? 8) :lol:
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Pretty good after 2 minutes of run time! :D CPE did say something along the lines of maybe coming out with a 1/4" lockout setup sometime. If your gonna pull stuff I would go with a straight axle setup. No need for that extra slop anyway if you aint gonna use it.... 8)

Try this guy! He has a pulling club and makes most of the parts on both my clod pullers.
They weigh 14 pounds and pull 50 on a dead pull, after the weight sled comes up :)

Message from clodtalk admin:
Jim, aka 6x6_BigDollars, has eye problems, he can't see the screen very well.
He writes in caps so HE can see what he's typing, he's not mad/shouting.
In PM's, it's helpfull if you change your font-size to "huge".
