Okay, to be honest, I have not done anything to this little boy. I have no idea why he wants to call me out as he is doing. and I am much more mature than my reply indicates, it just made me mad.

http://www.ttora.com/forum/showthread.php?postid=732501#poststop

I am just trying to figure out how I got under his skin to begin all of this. he is definitely on my ignore list, but it still infurates me.

Sorry to post this on your board, but as of now, our board is still in the works.

Nope. Stu provides nothing useful. At least Weslytoy was funny.

Hmmmm....thread is gone :confused:

I didn't get to see what was goin' on, but if Stu is involved then just forget it. At best he only provides cheap entertainment, and that was only for the few days that his "I didn't get flamed enough for rolling my truck" thread was going hot & heavy. Other than that he's a waste of internet bandwidth. Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll show up at an event such as takeover, THEN there would be some REAL entertainment.....oh, wait, he doesn't have a truck to 'wheel....he rolled it doing donuts :D

yea! well "it was going to be on!" but one of the mods removed all the derogatory remarks! I only got in one shot and I am sure know one really saw it since it was late last night.

the moron basically took a pot shot at me for no reason. That 007 replied to the idiot's question about what he was posting being a repost. 007 replied with "does a bear shit out of his ass"

and Stu-pid replied back no shit flies out of bears mouth when he argues with me.

Now granted Stu-pid is a moron, and a waste of oxygen, but I haven't made a comment to or towards him since his infamous I haven't been flamed enough…thread.

Yet he takes a deliberate shot at me for no reason. I am sure he was just trying to get a rise out of someone, and I fell for it, but Darn! Don't say something like that and expect everyone to take it laying down.

Although my response was classic, the mods did the correct thing and removed all the derogatory comments that followed, including the "Stu got owned" link.

Guess the fool goes back on the ignore list again…but he should have been banned! perminently this time!

Well, just so that we can keep up the Ohio tradition of not letting any thread stay on topic :D

I called Boyce yesterday and asked about D60 axles.

Front: $3300 Complete hub to hub with your choice of gears.

Rear: $1450 Complete with your choice of gears.

Detroit Locker: $595

I forgot to ask whether they were with 35 spline axles or not, and if not whether you could order them with and how much.

See Bear, now you've got me thinking D60s again. Screw the cops and their fenders and mud flaps....LOL

I also talked with Mike at ORS about their Tacoma Coilover SAS kit. Info is HERE

Of course I get flamed for bringing up the kit by people who have just put together their shit themselves. I posted the update about the ORS kit because people had been asking about it, and I want to know what all of my options are. If I get my rear 4 link done without issues, I will probably just buy the parts from Ballistic and do the front myself too, but given the horror stories with everyone doing the AllPro kit, I want to know if there is something more complete available, since I don't have the luxury of someone like AJ who can help work around problems that can (and probably will) arise. I'm sure that I'm not the only one....

Were these prices shipped? Screw them putting the locker in at their inflated price, order an "open" axle and when it arrives put the locker in yourself. A lot cheaper that way I would imagine.

So is this the way you are leaning now? going with Boyce? I think it is my best option to date.

I would't say you got completely flamed on that one. It could have been a lot worse. Besides I think Wes has just been on the rag lately, he hasn't had much nice things to say to anyone.

In regards to you doing your front. do your rear as you are planning. figure out as many "shortcuts" that you can. then get everything ready for the front. Let me know when you are ready to start it, and I will talk my buddy that is basically my head mechanic, to make a road trip with me and we will come help you set up your front. Won't really need a kit that way. you will have three minds wrapped around your set up instead of one feable one.:p

(LIke I really expected this to thread to stay on topic??? Get real!)

I can't comment on them as i have only their reputation to go by. never ordered from there myself. but as you stated, I have only heard good things.

I know on my solid axle, I looked into a couple of company's bracket kits,but ended up just building my own. To me it was part of the "learning curve" but Eric has a justifiable concern…doing a link set up is far more complex than a leaf set up. If at the time I did my SAS, I would have done a link set up if there was a kit out to take away my fears and self doubt.

those prices are not really that far out of line, considering everything you would have to rebuild and replace buying a junk yard axle.

and by the way, I hate you to! I feel so used and abused! wha wha wha! :D

Well he is a bung hole on the boards, Don't know what his malfunction is but it is getting old.

I added him to the ignore list once before, but tried to give him a second chance, but you can bank that I won't make that mistake a second time!

I would guess, if it is true that he is really not like that in person, then he is even a bigger worm. Trying to hide behind a key board, that is just weak!

But like I said I am finished wasting time on his pathetic soul. Just pisses me off when I get "blind sided" for no appearent reason. I don't think I have done anything to provoke such an attitude from him. All I know is someone needs to get some reigns on him!

He was trying to be sarcastic in a thread on the take over, saying he wanted to meet me. but I can assure you, he definately doesn't know what to wish for as it would not be a pleasant encounter for him if I was able to go.

I guess we will have to agree to disagree then...........cause from where I stand that is highway robbery...........I can go down to the local you pull it yard and grab a rear 60 for 75$........that 1k+ saved will go along ways toward building it..........and when I am done it will be built..........where as the boyce axles are stock crap.......if they were built maybe but for a stock axle that is assinine.


And you are not abused.........you are a ass........that is why I HATE YOU........LoL.

See there you go, going off half cocked again! we are not talking about rear D60's we are talking about fronts. I agree the rear axle from boyce is a bit pricey, but again if it comes with all the bearings and seals, you are going to be saving some in aggrivation.

If you can pull a front axle for $75, then yea, go for it, I would take four for that price and rebuild them myself, but the fact is you are not going to find a front d60 for that price anywhere in the U.S If you can, snatch it up or as many as you carry and I will buy them from you for the same price you pay.

and yes I am an ass! A smart ass!:rofl:but that is obviously a matter of opinion!

Oh hell no.................you are the one going off half cocked.........you wanna talk front 60's..........lets see.......they sell them for the same price as rears.........but I have never found one there...........so we will go with the one I know I can get for 300$...........that leaves me 3k to build it.........I think I could make it pretty dam strong for 3k.........one hell of alot stronger than stock anyways........plus it will be locked.........which adds 600$ to their price so really I have 3600$ to build it...........hell I bet I could put a pare together for less than the cost of their front.


See this is why the price of 60's has sky rocketed.........people pay these prices rather than looking around.....I find them all the time cheap (rears for 100-300$, fronts 500-1000$).........alot of times it involves dragging home an entire vehicle but what the hell.

And I was thinking :asshat: more than smart ass......... :D



PLEASE NOTE: none of my posts were intended to be negative toward Bradleyem...............It just cracks me up when I see people charging and getting high prices like these.
