Remind me not to ask for your assistance when it comes to transfer cases

Gotta move the truck tomorrow I think. So some temp bumps have been tack welded on and I had to see what it would look like with a tire.

I'll be honest, I don't like that hook up front. I also think if you do much wheeling in the brush it will be a nuisance when backing up. But it will be unique.

I see herby not that smart car pos. But to me Herby will always be the coolest bug (kid in me) and sorry beefy but your dakota will never be that cool

Beefy are planing on running sheet metal or something over the front? Whats going to protect all that important struff ? I know its wasnt 100 percent protected before but now its looking like 100% not protected, Jims comment about brush (sticks) got me thinking of it.

The radiator will be in the back, so not much left to protect. And the front end is not done yet. The winch still has to go up there and the shocks need to go in still obviously.

The motor moved back 17" from the stock location. Yea it's still gonna get some type of Dakota hood I have 2 of them to play with. Then maybe some kinda fender I'd like the front to start looking a bit like a dakota again we shall see.

I think that I'll be contacting you shortly Shawn I think I need Inner Air locks

They hold just fine sitting in the garage, but talking with Chuck he knows a guy that had the same combo I have and he had to put inner air locks in them
