braided brake lines and fittings ordered. Might get the axle in this weekend.

Have a spartan locker for the rear. Just waiting for the brake line stuff to come in as well as a lube locker.

Smoky burnout will happen if axle gets fitted on saturday.

Very happy with the install.

There might be some contact with the exhaust under flex, but I'll fix that later

Couple more things to do before rocks and valleys in August

Shock mount broke (I may have forgotten a few welds late at night) so fixed that.

Got frame stiffeners welded up. Maybe a little more welding one night this week and a little bit of prep. Planning on rocks and valleys next weekend

Found out the shock tube shield was hitting something, and filling with water so I cut them off. Found a small brake leak so fixed that too.


Need to get the exhaust re ran before next weekend

Starter died today. Good thing I had picked up a new one on lunch... too bad it was for the four cylinder

A shoutout to @FyrFyr for letting me borrow his truck. Thanks. The way you sit in it makes me feel old though

Right info will get you the right parts, unless you get an inept counter jockey.

I reserved it online. Must have lost something in translation...

Oh well, all better now

Got some work to do this week.

Bent up the Crossmember pretty good playing around at rocks and valleys this weekend.

Time to make it better

gonna pick up a new trans mount and pick through the pile at the shop this week hopefully.

I think I'm going to wrap the brackets around up on the outside of the unirail... hopefully I can find some 4x1 heavy wall rectangular tubing lying around or similar. 3/16" wall minimum. Want to leave room in case I want to make longarm mounts in the future.

Probably not one of my best calls but I just welded the Crossmember in.

I know how I'm gonna make it removable, so I didn't worry about that tonight.
