Got out there a bit today, no pics. Got my newer radius arms mounted, lower fox shock mounts to the radius arms. Built the RF shock tower.

Awhile lol. Still trying to get the front axle under it for now.

Mounted the gear box today, about 3/4 done on that. Radius arms are under it and attached.

Need to build trac bar and shock hoops, then charge the shocks and go from there. Build driveshafts after I acquire the pieces needed to build them. Install and custom out the wiring harness's. Buy and mount a fuel system in it. Install a cage. Figure out how I am gonna keep the 5.8L cooled down. Mount my rear Shocks somehow. Install seats and safety belts.

Time isn't the hindrance, its the fundage to acquire the necessary parts to complete it.
