i am going to have her get the crane 13 bolt kit.will cut it and shave it and add there cover.
should have the other air shock moved out today and the bumps made,will also put her new inner air lock limit straps on.
will have the axle in and maybe even get her the rear 2.5 air shocks before we go to harlen in 3 weeks. after these upgrades her rig is about done. will do some kind of hydro steering this winter put the fuel cell in and change the track bar on the front..that is all the upgrades she should have left.

Looking up the crane kit, but just saw this on pirate

Yea yea yea.........you know as well as anyone it will NEVER be done. As soon as you check a couple things off the list you decide to change the next couple things. Axle swap and air shocks weren't even supposed to happen til this winter. Will be on the hunt for some 42's around New years

Not sure. Depends on Erins work schedule plus he's picking up his 5.3. Hoping to run by Jimmys shop and pick up brackets and drop off my 60 for Tim. I'm guessing if we do that we will at least run by the park. Not competing tho.

You runnin?

Last week picked up the 14 bolt, got it up to Ironman offroad to have gears set, took it over to Erins and got the 60 removed. Hoping to have it all put back together this weekend. Have to run up to Jimmys for brackets and should be good to go.
