There is usually a fair contingency from the Florida Flywheelers also.. A group of antique tractor and engine enthusiasts. My dad and uncle both use belong to the flywheelers and go every year when they were alive.

I've been 3 or 4 times,, really pretty cool. It is strange though,there are so many custom cars you start to just pass by ones you would normally spend a lot of time looking at.

New power for the Jeep

I didn't get over there this year but a good friend of mine called me from there Sat. I had him pick me up a motor for one of my Jeeps. I got a 04' LQ9 6.0L from a Escalade. Out of the box it runs 345 hp and 380 ft. lbs stock. With just a few mods I should be able to get around 400hp and 500 Ft. Lbs to the ground. I was real happy about the price. I should start the swap in a few months after I gather up the tranny and transfercase I want.

Later,

Billy

08' Rubi 4dr
6.5" BDS long arm
1" TeraFlex coil spacers
38x15.50x20 MTZ's
20x10 RBP rims
1310 HD JE Reel shafts
ShrockWorks Midwidth ft. bumper
Warn Power Plant 9500
Rockhard rear bumper/carrier
JKS adjustable ft and rear trac bars
River Raider snorkel
5:13 finally!!
A wish list a mile long

Hey there Dave, I'm putting it into the 98' TJ. It already has the 9" front and rear to handle the extra power, thats the same Jeep my son and I want to turn into a "Brute". I be sure to post up the progress when we get started.

Well....you know why I asked . I took a pic of a brute TJ @ the show n shine the other day just for you..but the pic was horrible (had the camera set wrong). But I was thinking about ya man.

Glad to see you "back."
