I like what you did with the headlights. My girlfriend wanted to do something and i think that might be what she has been looking for on her 450

Hey Jeep' ! Glad to be here and hope here is glad I am here also !!! I learned a few things already ----- how you like them side-shines LED's , you got any like that yet ? I can blind everybody with them , maybe even myself - LOL . I would like to see them in " Live Action "

Got home early today and the boots for my 4-2-4 and seals for the drive shaft were here waiting on me , hope to get the kick-out rebuilt this evening ------

Wow , your girlfriend rides the 450 !!! My wife has a really nice 300 4x4 with a 4-2-4 kick-out and she still rather ride her old 300 2wd cause she says it is more fun ------ she rides like a maniac , she is a one woman demolition crew , wide open is all she knows , she has never ridden my 450 , and hope she never does as she has flipped , crashed into trees and other bikes more times than I can remember , in all fairness to her , momentum riding is what she learned at , nail it and hold on , I kid you not her nickname is Ms Momentum

Model year /model does she ride ?

She has a 2001 foreman 450 with 28" zillas. We are still working on it. I have pictures in one of my albums. I need to get the 424 and install the gear reduction and do the es to s swap and get new longer shocks for the rear. I wanted to do the irs in the rear like mine but she doesnt want it.

..... full time 450 with 28's , I know it has to be hard on her , you need to get her a lick out -----my wife's 300 had 27 Outlaws and they were wide , I had to take them off as she was complaining and was getting thrown around in the ruts and jumping out the ruts and hitting trees , I put some ITP swamp lite 27's narrower tires and it does not bang her around as much , the Outlaws with the big side threads grab the sides of the ruts and throw you up and out , walks right out of there ----

Mine had 27 inch outlaws when i got it from my friend and before i even went down to pick it i had the 30s on it so i never found out how the laws rode. Im hoping this easter we take hers down to boggs and boulders to see how it does in real mud

I got the price on a 4 inch drop arm kit yesterday , it is pricey , PM if you want to know how much and who's building it , going to send 1/2 down today and 1 month to complete it , 1/2 when complete , comes with a-arms , grease-able Helms , ball joints , tie rod ends , shock absorbers and custom built Cobra axles , from what I understand , one of the two axles is an axle that matches up with a axle from another bike , and the other is custom , both axles in this kit will be custom , but if I do break one then one is replaceable without having it custom built

Jeep' , I just got a whiff of Mustard , I think there is a yellow 450 lurking on this board

I still ain't come up with a name for my bike yet , being a fisherman and the color green which I have been told that the 450's came in ketchup/red , mustard /yellow and green/relish , maybe I could be Reel'ish ---- I am thinking about Godzilla



Remember when I was growing up Sunday mornings was Chinese monster and hop and chop movies theater

Should name my Blue 1st gen 300 = Blue Oyster Cult
