the 4.10s are in and the ARB is in the front with an Aussie in the D44a Rear. Time to have some fun.

Well Here are a couple of pics of the ARB front locker installed.






Also picked up a Lincoln welder flux core wire model and decided to weld up my trackbar mounts here are a few pics, not bad since I have not welded in 20 years,




Also one of it on the RTI Ramp
I think my shocks are limiting my travel now.

what type of TC shifter handle/knob is that or is that possibly a Novak shifter kit?

not a novak, just a cheap aftermarket replacement know, my only issue is trying to figure out how to operate the ******* z gate on the linkage. right now I have to loosen the set screws so I can press it down to get to neutral and 4 lo. Might just cut the pin on the z gate out so that it can go to any position.

Well I decided to paint my cladding black to match the ARB bumper. Also a couple of shots of my back seat mod allowing me to remove the seat bottoms for a little extra room, saw this on another forum and thought it was a great idea and did it to mine.

welded steel washers to tighten up the holes that had gotten a little ovaled out.

Those mx-6's are definitely limiting your flex. Even when I was at 2.5" they were limiting it. x2 on wondering how the 4.10's are.

So far they seem pretty close to optimal, have not driven it much with the 31s yet, still breaking in the gears but I think it was the right choice.

It might not be all the shocks, you have an addco rear sway bar correct? That thing limits flex quite a bit or at least mine did. It is now sitting in my room collecting dust.

Some seat pictures, I do not have any of the bags on the back as they use up the rear seat space, I put some on it when I wheel though.
