Well rear did almost exactly what I wanted it to. Got third, and Maddog and really sore neck lol. Lost radiator early got hot. Just wished the guy that full tracked me did it to both pillars instead of one. Had notch right behind bumper and BIG dimple right behind leaf mount. Front bent at a curve and passenger rail at the holes for steering.
I have a bubble gm wagon. Everyone has said not to run the back tailgate. I asked why but no one really has a answer. Looking to see your opinions on it
If not leafed all you need to know is the softer the better. Your only 2 thing's to focus on are to make it go up and Square and keep the humps from exploding. CHAIN YOUR HUMPS and use as much 9 wire as allowed and threaded rod to.your advantage. Make relief cuts. Beat the pillars in. Beat the quarters in and down. Your whole.objective is make it so the exact opposit of what the factory designed it to do.

Landshark007 yours is a bad example to look at front bumper is pretty much looking at ground. Should of never bent like that in the rear if it was chained down. Could of it of been a even better car then you got out of it yes but I'm sure it was a learning experience deal for it to look like that. I've saw plenty of guys leaf the wagons but even they ditch tail gates. I don't like the tail gates I think it makes them roll like crap. For guys that run tail gates. I've saw a lot cut and roll the hole middle of it to the floor which really is more work then just pulling it off since your getting same effect. Tail gate is just one more panel to get someone hung up on with bumpers. Ditch it and run the car level.
