LOL, I'm bypassing Sentinel and going straight to the machine shop. I'd probably ask for something like that too honestly. Or get him to machine something random in one. You should see the F150 in the back of the machine shop that he owns that just needs plumbed and wired. It's absolutely art work!!! It's an Armada Engineering built truck if you've ever seen anything they've put out for reference.

Like I said, friggen art work and he's got a fully built truck sitting there with no time to finish it!!! Disgusting!!!







This is a 1000+ hp, 18" travel all around, awd rally truck!!! It's gonna be powered by a Turbo charged inline 6 2JZ and a Powerglide transmission

Or more reference, this is the owner of Armada's personal Chevy S10. My buddy at the machine shop literally made the shocks on this truck, these aren't like Kings, they're his shocks.


Check out the billet mezzanine arm in the rear with the coilovers and bypasses laying horizontal facing towards the rear.

Not until after the lift. Adam's said that they could build shafts that would work, but they may vibrate because I dont have adjustable control arms yet. I have to save until I have enough to do the lift, and it's going slow. OT slowed down a bit. Still hoping for June/July, but not sure yet. Still trying to find the time to complete some of the stuff that I have parts for.

You can still do the SYE but your Jeep would be a pavement queen until the shafts are built. Just drive her in 4hi which is what I would assume you are doing now?

That's what I mean, see if he will make US a deal straight from your machine dude. Notice I include myself in there!!

Quit posting those pictures dangit!!!! I've been eyeballing Pistol's TT he has for sale for 100K, but I keep reminding myself that anyone can buy a truck.....prepping and maintaining it is a whole other ball game.....AND NO I have nowhere near 100K LOL!!

So i got a email from Discount tire they found 4 pro comp rims with the 3.75 BS in FL and can get them here next week. and then i would have to wait for the 5th when 4wheelparts gets there backorder in mid may. For the 5 rims, mounted and balanced its 280 after tax.
If I picked up those GC rims for 50 and swaped them out for Khris's that are 4.5 BS and dismount and mount my tires onto them ($60) and then ordered wheel spacers from Rough country 120 plus shipping im at 230 plus gas.
so pretty much if i go though Discount i get a rim for 50 bucks extra (that i need)

So thanks for the offer guys thats way cool but its just easier to do it though Discount tire

No worries, they'll probably be in the driveway till may'ish sometime when they roll away with the rest of the heep.

Garza, you're thinking too small, BJ's TT is forsale too, pick it up!

And as much as I'd like to hook you guys up, I don't really think he's looking to give a ton of deals out the back of the shop type of thing. Right now I believe they only have one functioning prototype lower of their new style and they're still going to be making changes to it also. They've got a forged upper right now but he's going to be doing a machined one which is what he asked me if I'd be interested in drawing up for him.

Driving in 2wd, no front shaft. It's too long now.

You are about three steps behind the power curve. I decided that I was going to run a camper shell a while back! Even if I didn't run it every day, I was going to run it for camping trips.
