My goal is to have it ready by the first of October so I can go with a group to Morris Mountain in Alabama. And believe me I'm ready to get it on the trails, had it a year and a half now and have never drove it

Its quick and easy, once you get going it cuts like butter. I'll take some video on the next tire so you can see how it works.

Shaved a little off the 14 bolt today and gained a 1/2". I'll see how much it drags before I get brave and turn it into a 13 bolt.

Cut the diff cover just below the botom bolt




Used it as a straight edge to cut the lip and then used a grinder to round off the front edge






Also welded on the spring perches and did a quick paint job since its going to get scratched up



Axle shafts back in, just need to add some oil now
