Well it's been a while since I updated this thread.
Since then I have customized the ORO steering kit, added a PSC hood louver, added 2" Spider tracks spacers, had a custom dual steering stabilizer made, delta quad bar H4 head lamps, ORO rock lights, Flexlite 3300 cfm elec fan kit, and finally managed a wheeling pic.

Next on the list, is a Genright rear crossmember kit with optional inner channel, Teraflex gas tank skid, and then double diy beadlocks from A to Z.

Genright rear x member and Teraflex GTS installed as well as a upper rear coil relocation.









Today I am installing the Brown dog supper 1" mml kit and Saturday the copperhead weld on Beadlocks.
Almost done!

Alright, bead locks are done, and I added a second viair 450c to the OBA.



I am installing a set of Fox 2.0 shocks this morning.

cant wait to hear how those shocks ride. Did you notice a big difference in your ride when you relocated those rear coil mounts?

Big is matter of opinion noticable yes.

The Fox 2.0's are killer!
Thursday I am making the final suspension mods.
Minnor really just tweaking the lower front and upper rear shock mounts to get the most out of their travel.

Easy it's almost like your saying SA kits ride rough! lol

Around these parts (this forum) for some reason people get pissy about such talk!

EVEN though it's simple physics and LA kits should always ride better than SA kits, as well as keep the tires in a more correct vertical path while flexed.

Now I have done it, for sure some SA owner will be telling me I am a asshat!

Oh well!

You need more wheeling pics!

How are the 37s holding up on the rubi 44s? Did you truss your axles or simply went with the upgraded shafts?

lol yeah I never take a cam............

No problems so far with only adding cromo shafts, I am keeping a close eye on the ball joints and universals so well see.

I do have some more wheeling pics just most end up posted in various threads instead of my build thread.
