Progress is back on,............all my other toys have been sold, so now I have time to work on this again.

Installed the 3/4 ton axle in the back, and now I'm cleaning it up so that I can start on the front axle. I will be modifying the TTB to handle the 8 lug wheels. I also have a set of 37 inch tires on the rig now to help with the mock up for the shock hoops and body clearance.

I also have added a new two post lift to my facility, so that my old man knees do not have to be kneeling on the concrete for the frame and axle work.

Hope to have some progress pictures soon.
