Re: Angel is a movie star

Wonder if the swaybar was still connected?

Re: Angel is a movie star

Wow, my first movie.

Yes, my sway bar was disconnected.

Great class. It was my first 4x4 class. I met Tom in Saline Valley with a class he had just brought in. My SMB was being built. I asked him what I needed to take his class. He said 4x4, tow points-front and rear, and lockers would be good but not required. After talking to him, I changed from limited slip to 4X4 with lockers in the rear, limited slip in the front, and added tow points in the front.

The couple in the pickup gave my SMB its name: "Lighthouse" because when I was on top of a hill, the sun reflected off it into their eyes like a lighthouse and they could tell where the trail went, from a long ways away.

Tom and Bill Burk are friends and recommend each others classes.
