Hey guys its been a crazy fall and winter term hence why i haven't had any updates in a while. Let me get you guys back up to speed!

Kyle_craig... Here is what the guy who put together my axles and later my mid arms ended up doing for me. He cut down the track bar, made a new mount for me. The only problem i had was i lost some the factory bolt and had a hard time finding one that fit snug enough. So i used what i had and had just a little tiny bit of play but it was enough to cause a pretty bad death wobble. I then drilled the trackbar out to 7/16ths and now no wobbles.

I gave my self a week to try and find some tires on craigslist and almost pulled the trigger on some iroks but i didn't exactly like what i was reading a far as tread life and wear. So i decided to go with the MTRS however i couldnt find one decent set on craigslist...
So i went down to americas tire factory and they were having a big summer tire sale. So i they had a deal where you get a 100.00 rebate per 500.00 you spend then there was a goodyear rebate for 75.00 on top of it if you finance over 1000.00 they have you another 100 back when its paid off. So 4 35x12.5x15 mtrs and 4 black steel rims for a total of 1175 and put down 174. Paid them off a month later and ended up being into it 800.00 The Goodyear rebate came first after about a month, the America's tire ones came after about 4 months and me calling twice asking where they were at.
So after it was all said and done and finally got all my rebates back i was only in the tires 100.00.

There are tons of little modifications i've done that im missing but here is my air setup for inflation and for the lockers. I decided to run an ARB compressor for the lockers and then i mounted the york on the AC mount with help from the same guy who welded my axles. He made a pretty sweet mount for it that is also adjustable for the tension on the belt.

The pulley is from Kilby and believe it or not was almost as much as the ARB compressor itself... the pulley after shipping was like 80 and some change i found the ARB compressor from a guy on craigslist brand new for 100 and then the york i found at a pick n pull during a memorial day sale for 25. I bought the hose, fittings, gauges, filters, etc at harbor freight for probably a total of 20-30 dollars. Then 20.00 for the ARB airlines and 15.00 for switches. I still need to clean up the wiring to the cab but under the hood is all good.
