Got my order from RuffStuff today so I can get some serious progress done this weekend. I also just got back from feva4u's shop. He helped me bend up my shock hoops the other day and we needed to but a little bend in them tonight to help clear the shock better from the frame.

I need to figure out how to connect to my pitman arm, either by tie rod or something that will allow some steep angles.

Also gonna need to find a 45 or 90 for the fox shocks. Not sure I am gonna be able to get the line on as I am to close to the fender.

Its not, after I was done I let it down a bit.

The valve on the shock sits straight towards the fender. Not sure there is enough room to attach to the valve between it and the fender. Curious about a 45 or a 90 I can attach to get access.

Gotcha. Everything lay in nice? Cut some cardboard and come over and dimple die a piece to tie your shock brackets back to the hoops. It'll help keep them from coming off when you're airborn

Looks sweet, gotta love those air shocks


build the pitman arm the other way then, so you can use a heim with double shear.

Rear shocks mounted


Start of the rear bumper


Crossover bar so far, notched it for the throttle linkage. Without the notch the throttle in sweep was a 1/4" away from it. But obviously the motor is gonna twist and move a bit so I wanted a little more "just in case" clearance. Need to make it removable next. Its just "in place" at the moment.

That all seems doable. Maybe one of these days I will come down and lend a hand to help finish it up.
