Here she is! Sitting on 37 inch tires with the bump stop mounts all done and the bed and fenders re-installed. Next step - install fuel tank and check clearances of the custom suspension and crazy shock absorbers against the tank. It arrived just in time
This is quite possibly the first photo of two Brutes side by side in the Middle East

Also note: Pace Edwards electric tonnau cover box - ready to go on the Brute when it's all done
Front Bump Stop Mounts massively reinforced - after seeing a similar design for the bump stop mounts on the Blue Brute had bent the spring perches slightly. The Blue Brute is missing it's front fenders as it undergoes the same improvement.
The Rear Bump Stop Lower Perch in place. The tube hanging down from above it represents the length of the bump stop at full compression. This will be removed and replaced by the actual bump stop. A lot of options were explored but this worked out to be the best location to keep them in-line with the shock absorbers (so that landings are the same as articulation - e.g. one at a time or both hitting together) and also as close to the axle tube as possible.
