started cutting the fenders out and mounted the 38s for fitment, a special thanks to boghog360 for the new glass. 10in rear spring will be ordered tuesday and the soa will be done next month at some point. will post pics up tonight of the progress, need some ideas for a color and looking for a dana 60 front.

ok all plans have switched, this is whats happenin. SOA dana 60 front with ox locker, 60 rear with a detroit, shackle flip for the rear, "mild" built AMC 360, 200 horse shot of NOs, 39.5 IROKs on walker evens beadlocks, and a secret paint job. Im also shortening the rear by 13". thinking about a winch but i may not need it. shooting to have it finished by next summer so i can hit the dunes
