Should be getting it on the RTI ramp in two weeks just to see what it will score.





Yes I know poser shots but I was out checking the new rear shock travel after moving the axle end brackets and making sure I had the bump stops set up correctly.

about how much cash you put into it total?
Hmmmm there's just under 30k in parts and about 8k in labor for the stuff I either don't have time to do or can not due to the lack of the needed tools.

Ok so after getting tired of the lame *** ps box and system I was stuck with via Chrysler.
I decided to upgrade to the PSC extreme trail assist set up.
I should have done this a long time ago........

Looks good man. That is my next purchase. Did you get the full kit?

Also, can you snap a pic of what you did with your Track Bar mounts? They are not in the stock location right.

Yup I got the complete kit with the psc recommended cooler.
I did order the tie rod clamp from poly. I am running a modified ORO U turn steering linkage which made the clamp pretty attractive over welding to cromo.
The track bar mounts are teraflex it is their highsteer track bar set up.
When I did the initial build I chose the fab fours diff covers which are over sized and I had binding issues with the regular T flex track bar.
I'll work on some better pics of the axle side tb and cylinder mounts asap.

Here ya go......







Its not completely clear in the pics but I cut three pieces of 1/4 to add to the tb mount.
Two got welded to tb mount to get the centerline of the hiems as close to the centerline of the tr as possible when completely extended and collapsed. This also helps in getting less twist or roll in tr and tre's while the cylinder moves.
The third was just a brace of sorts to add some strength by connecting the outer tb mount to the inner in a second place inline with the cylinder.
Hope that's what you were looking for?

For any one running the flexlite black magic fan you can hook a wire to the manual switch terminal on the relay to make a led indicator light.
it works like a charm and makes tuning the stat way easier.

I also have to say that offroadcontrols.com makes an extremely nice in cab winch control panel.
Seeing I am not a good electrician it took me about two hours to run wire and hook it up but it works perfectly and looks sweet.

Pics are coming.........

Last thing I'll be heading to RC offroad park with the guys from the local jeep dealership on Sept. 7th I know there is a core of guys who are normally up there.
I hope too see them on the trails.....
