I've been doing it all wrong, I guess having a flat belly was just a fad

I'm suprised there's no 12" drop pitman abortion on there. Looks like that TRE is gonna snap the second he turns the steering wheel.

Did I read properly that these are on a lot, like a for sale lot!!!!!!????????? I honestly think someone needs to turn that shit in before its on the road looking for people to kill. Shit like that shouldn't be sold other than for scrap.

But if you judge it by the color, he has dif protection and maybe an axle from CRANE



disclaimer: this is no dig on the quality parts CRANE produces, it's more of a dig on the color this douchebag decided to paint his bootie fabbed POS
