It wouldn't be as much of a weight thing as a rolling resistance one. Although, it would never tip over.

Ha, ha....well if Crashy can handle the "resistance" created by several hundred pounds of plow and snow......surely....well, you know.

Wow .. this is amazing progress. I was expecting it to take much longer when I first saw its state after the deer was finished with it.

Sooo ... Crashy was bored and needed a friend. ;)

(subscribed)

And BTW, Thanks for continuing to bring the awesomeness to this board, Scott. I think it's f'ckng impressive, what you do to these cars.

I'm just curious, how much would a lift cost? (I can see that for you, it's an absolute necessity, Scott. You do way too much work on these cars to be crawling under them all the time. Much more efficient with a lift and you get some good use out of them).

Thanks Tomato! The lift was $1999 shipped from Northern Tool and is definitely one of my favorite toys.
