Well after waiting 2 months and exchanging a bunch of emails I canceled my order to l&l fab for my winch bumper, unless your ordering a bumper you don't need any time soon then you might want to look else where. I ordered the diy winch bumper from dirtbound.com, also ordered some extended bump stops and may have to do a little fabbing to keep the rear tires out of the fenders so these next days off are gonna be pretty busy.

List for next days off:
*pick up steering links from powder coating and put back on.
* wheels will be done, mount tires on beadlocks.
*mock up and weld out bumper, get powder coated
*weld on frame rail stiffeners
*bump stops

Optical illusion of the pic or does your truss really sit close to the oil pan?

Not real happy with the rock krawler lower links having a bushing on the frame side so I ordered some dom tubing and hiems to build my own lower links.

Yeah, it just looked like the truss went really far back towards the pan for some reason, looking at it again on a computer and not my phone makes it look correct.

Built a new track bar that's more parallel to the drag link using the drag link and tabs off my old steering setup, just had to build a mount coming off the truss. Also finished welding out my c gussets.

Stub shaft came in today, got to test it a little in the clay pits behind my house to make sure everything was good. Got it loaded up ready for Saturday to see how it holds up

Looking great man, nice work. Steering and trackbar angles look spot on.
