lockers are in, had the gears almost a year, they are going in soon. I get off Wednesday and going to start on it, trim rear fenders, cut out rockers and weld in 2x6 square tubing, ordered hiems and dom tubing to build cross over steering, gonna build a stubby bumper to mount my winch, and a few more things here and there

Update, last days off got my 4:88 gears in, steering box brace welded on, rear fenders comp cut, cut out rocker and welded in some 2x6" channel iron and took my bumper and off cause I figure my other one would come in so i could mount it and my winch but...no. Then did a little wheeling. My stuff to build my crossover steering & frame stiffeners came in the day before I came back to work so next days off I got to do and just ordered a 3 link set up, front axle truss and beadlock kit. Here's a few pics
Getting done next days off:
1. 3 link install
2. front axle truss
3. drop track bar mount with adjustable track bar
4. build crossover steering set up
5. frame stiffeners
6. bumper & winch mounted (if bumper comes in)
7. beadlocks

Go the new track bar and drop mount on and steering almost done, all the thats left is weld on some tabs for the steering damper, everything feels real solid now, ordered some longer shocks for the front they should be in friday, the ones on it came with the short arm kit that was on it before and are limiting my travel, still waiting on my bumper....besides that all I have left is weld my frame stiffeners on and the bead lock kit
