    This will be badass, why weld the front though. That's asking for birfields to shatter in little pieces even with 33s.

    I can get 7 sets of birfields before I pay for a locker. Plus as long as I actually keep them it's no big deal. If I planned to keep it for multiple seasons I would do a spartan. And I I do decide to keep it I have a spare 3rd to put a spartan in

    i got it fired up, but it cut off after like 5 seconds. im not getting fuel from my tank to my filter. im not sure if its just too low on gas, or if my pump is bad. If the pump is bad I am removing all the electric crap and putting a mechanical pump on it

    On better note; I did remove the smog pump and AC compressor today though

    I'd drain the tank if you haven't already. Theres a drain plug on the bottom of the tank under the skid plate.
