This is a great build! I've checked in every once in a while but I am completely a fan now! You do great work!

One question, what type of rattle can black did you use to paint it, I wanna paint mine, I'm either going with this black, or a similar orange to what is on your axles.

It was Krylon Flat Black, put 6 to 8 coats on then wet sanded with 1000 grit sand paper on the Hood, Cowling and Windshield frame. The reat of the body armor was powder coated statin black to give the contrast. I was trying for a two tone black look?

The orange on the knuckles is just the way they come from Reid Racing.

Someone else took this picture of me and posted it on Winter on the Rocks Facebook page.

Not one of my finest moments, the mud got the best of me

Well, I have made 3 trips so far with the Jeep. The only problems to report was I had one ram assist hose start leaking and last weekend somehow I got a rock in between the inner of my left front tire and the lower link arm to sheer off a lower brake bleeder screw. Sorry no pictures.

Over all the Jeep works really well and I couldn't be happier!

No problem, let me know if there anything I can do to help! I have a lot of other pictures.

Ask for Keith at GenRight, he helped me along for a whole year and now we have become friends and go wheeling together.

Doing a bassckwards frame off build with suspension first. To get a roller/runner with a 8.8 and don't tell anybody, but built d30 til I can swing the 60's. The chassis build will probably take 2 years anyway with my time and cost to do so. My main concern is the build aspect now, and the heavy duty wheeling way down the road when its all done up.

To start with I would like the linked setup on 37's with the diffs I got. Please don't laugh too hard! Just going to do logging road wheeling here in WI with that setup. Would still like to drive it around town or cruise around if wanted to also.

That's awesome!

Thank you,

I didn't use the EXT tank, I used the COMP tank. I was able to stretch it 6" but have room to spare with the D44. Someday I might go with a D60 and should have room without doing anything to the links.
I allready have the 60's, I think I can only go 4, or 5 " on rear max.
