well the rear suspension is just about all done. Just needs some final welds on perches. Put axle in and tires on. Found out it'll be pretty low for 44's. Looking like 6'10" to roof and just shy of 8' wide to bulge of tire. Loving the way its looking so far. Hope to get started on links soon. Put in an offer on a house today so if i get it this thing will go on the back burner for a little while.

realized its been too long since an update. Been busy looking for houses and getting engaged and all that mess. Got some things done on the truck. Got the link mounts made and on. Eyed them up and realized i need to clock my t-case and get a doubler for it to work right so thats my next step. Got all the wheels and tires done. Mocked up the front axle placement and had it sitting on its own tires. 6'10" tall with no weight and 15psi, 93" wide bulge of tire to bulge of tire. 125"wb with 44's. and 32" belly height. Decided i'm going with rear radiator to free up some room in the front and shorten things a little. Dont give me crap about the front frame. i left it long cuz i didnt know what i was doing with it yet. It'll get cut off about 1'
