Got the UCF 1/4" aluminum gas tank, engine, and ultra high clearance t case skids and Novak linkage installed. Nice gains in clearance for my low rider.

Got the Warn VR8000 installed on the UCF aluminum plate. Used plastic wire loom to help protect the cables.

Axle upgrades started and coming along. During the tcase tear down for the sye realized it had run dry due to bad output seal. Didnt notice it cuz it never dripped on the ground just spun out the oil under the tub. Only damage seems to be the chain is stretched and pump cracked. Could be worse if I'd wheeled it like that. Heres pics of the G2 D44 and Rokmen LCA. Still waiting on uppers. Also a pic of the Novak linkage i never got posted before.

The axle work will pretty much wrap up the major upgrades, at least for now. Time to wheel it and see how it does. Then tweak it as needed. Still needs a cage, antirock, MCE fenders, and the rest of the Rokmen CAs.

No corners yet. Probably get some soon though. I want the Rokmen full corners to go with the rockers I already have but I'd have to cut 4" holes for my tail lights. No huge deal really just need the right tool to cut 3/16 steel in a perfect circle. Plasma cutter?
