Looks great man. I want to setup my rear the same way. It look like you set up the 4 link pretty easily

Yah it was really simple, did it in about 4 hours. Set the lowers at 28" eye to eye and bolt to axle. Then push the frame side in place and tack at that location. Boom frame mounts done. Then the uppers just fit.

I take it those frame brackets take away a lot of guessing too? Looking forward to seeing how it performs offroad

Totally, I wouldn't do it without them, so simple. Either the poly or the artec ones, both do the same

My steel winch line is partially frayed and I have been running it tentatively. But was surprised when a buddy dropped this off for free, saying yet sent two and didn't need one.

I know there not the best winch lines, but what the hell, for free!

Rained a bit this weekend and all was fun, on the way out of a little play area I hit a ok sized bump and pop! My fox resi hose line broke and spewed all over!

Should be interesting to fix......
