    Awesome Video Shug. That is the best explanation IMHO of how to attach a woopie to the WBBB that ive seen. I get the larks head now and I love when that light bulb goes on in my head. After watching your video and looking at my WBBB I see how easy it is now and thing I might switch out the stock suspension. If I wanted, could I use the webbing that Brandon provided in his suspension system to make tree huggers? Thanks for the afternoon entertainment Shug, cant wait for number 5
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Thank you very so much!
    It was my DIY I was using but it is basically the same on the BB ..... just loosen the ridgeline by pulling it out a bit on the end outside of the BB ... Just watch how you do it and reverse the whole deal and pull the RL back in from the inside. Easier to do than to type about!
    #5 may be a little bit .... tarps .... a whole new can of worms.

    Shug, you should have been a teacher. Your class would have been a blast.

    Don't argue with the alligator until after you cross the river.
