sweet, got more pics? how is it in the desert? whoops?
It's not a speed demon, but it is comfortable in the whoops. I've got the rear setup with 7 inches of up travel, and the front at 6. Previous owner did the leaf spring hanger mounts up front and they're not as beefy as I'd like so I try not to smash things super hard at speed.
