Thanks

Yes, it is definitely the camera playing tricks. I have never measured the vertical edge but it has to be at/over 5' tall, it is a decent amount taller than the 42" tires.

Spring rates are working good, I need more time in the seat and more video to see how it really works. So far the ride is pretty good, could be better but I don't feel like changing the valving right now, things are still getting broke in.

I made new transmission cooler hoses, bit the bullet and went with AN fittings. Finally added the tender coils to the rear and clearanced the rear transfer case yoke a bit, I am now using all 16" of shock travel front and rear.

I still need to get the exhaust inside the frame, the passenger side is basically destroyed. I also found out the hard way that I need sliders at the rocker panels, I had a stump get wedged between the back of the cab and the drivers rear tire - had to winch out of that one. There are other little winter upgrades and what-not as well but nothing major.

I most likely won't be going anywhere again this year, need to work more and save money to have it ready for next spring. I will let you know as soon as the first trip gets planned and the seat will be yours (unless the wife wants to go).

Isn't that what EVERYONE does???? Not this guy, I don't want that set-up for a couple reasons: 1 - it's too long 2 - It makes for a stupid-heavy combo 3 - It's ridiculously expensive and 4 - it just barely doubles your final drive ratio.

I have already begun building my version of a second low range. But you'll have to wait until its finished to find out what it is.

Hmm i like my setup.
I will agree it is long but i have a 112'' WB and it works well for me. It is heavy but its also very strong compromise that i can live with.
My whole 203-205 setup cost $500 that includes everything got a new ORD adapter and billet shaft of a local and the 203.
It just barley doubles it but that makes a hugeee difference barley any throttle and i can crawl a staright ledge.
Im interested to see what you have to come up with 1356 205 of some sort?

Fixing that "pesky" exhaust issue

My fenderwell exit headers and mufflers running along the frame have become an issue by getting caught on trail obstacles. This has led to a few new bends in the system and an increase in decibel levels.

The old -



New headers -


I had to notch the passenger frame rail to clear the collector, but they fit -



The starter will be getting a heat shield, and the rest of the plumbing should be done by Monday - providing the weather cooperates. (It sucks not having a garage door tall enough)

There are a few other items that are being added and some others being modified, all in preparation for the Pit Trash shootout.
