They aren't OEM and they didn't come that way from the factory.

Does PSC even manufacture a reservoir with a bung for a sender?

BTW Blaine.... I told Andrew that he could have the aluminum tailgate hinge take-offs.

They have an AUX port on the reservoir. If you weren't using it for the hydroboost return, it could be used for a temp sender.

What do you do when your rear shocks need to be fixed? Get a magic tape measure and I just happen to own one.



Just in case you suck at dimensional math.



Installed in the rear application on Robert's rig they show just a smidge or two more than 6" of up-travel at ride height.

It was done that way to save the modification of the previously installed Poly outboard shock kit. This made it a direct bolt in.

It's not cheating if you know a guy and I just happen to know a guy.

That guy has come in very handy.... Saved me $$ on the rear and used that savings on the front.

Looks great Robert! Clean work Blaine.

However, with all of that work on that front axle, I would think you'd have upgraded it sometime.

It is upgraded. It's High Pinion, ARB, Warn locking hubs, Currie mini skids, raised swaybar link mounts, flipped Currie tie rod, 15" big brake kit, 2.5" JJ single upper on a mini truss, CTM u-joints, Warn full hardened alloy inners and outers, hydro assist, and if the polish on that turd were any higher, I'd have to wear my sunglasses to get near it.

What else does it need that it doesn't have?

Chrome diff cover.

That axle sounds perfect

1480 u-joints.

Mine has all that other crap. I still cringe when I put my tire against a vertical and press the throttle...

he's either talking about the 30spline kit, or a Dana 60.

My issues had nothing to do with the durability of the previous HP30 since it basically survived a ton of trail use and various modification attempts. Basically, getting suckered into crossover steering meant that it was easier to start over rather than trying to hack all of that off to get back to a stock configuration. I'm also never going beyond 35's, I'm not running a V8 and we already dropped about 300lbs off the truck by getting rid of the long arm and steel armor..... Knowing how and where I drive, no cringing will be involved.
