yea guys, im happy with it. I got the shocks and all back together today, revalved the smoothies a little stiffer, but now i think i need to slow down the rebound. its a bit bouncy now. overall its great. a few things need to be adjusted for better fitment but thats how it goes. still need to take it and get a new crossbrace made, and add some gussets around the hoops and arms.

rear glass might come eventually. at the moment, funding wont allow it, espically since it really doesnt add anything other than looks. im thinking about switching to a 33x10.5 in the rear which will allow the tires to tuck easier without doing much work to the rear fenders.
