This needs a bit of cleaning up with the grinder, but I am pretty darn happy with the fit and where it resides

Made some more progress, really starting to like this shoehorn job, this is at ride height with the axle centered. going to have to change some hose fittings to get the hydraulic hoses routed the way I want to but the ram fits pretty nicely like this.





Some more grinding and some more

You got that right John it was a ton of work, unless you run a bunch of lift , you really run out of room in a hurry.

My blingy mall krawler wheels lol, those things look tiny. On the bright side looks like my steering project will be done tomorrow. Got to weld the tabs for the center strap in and finish up the the hole in the frame for the draglink.
Then mess with the hoses for the steering ram and bleed it and take my baby for a spin.

Pfft, the egg is laid, will take my baby for a spin tomorrow. I am curious how the gearing on the street works out with the 37" pizza cutters. That is what they look like to me. Also pretty happy with the Hummer rims, I was afraid they would have to much backspacing, but they fit perfect.

Well it fixed the power department, but I like driving with the Pitbulls better.
Will play with it a bit in the next couple of days, main thing was to figure out how it would do with 37's power wise and that is a definite improvement seems about as spunky as my yellow one on 35's

You can fix the power issues with an upgrade in a certain area...
