Well got my turbo waste gate and blow off valve last Friday. Finished up my motor mounts over the weekend and started measuring things out to decide where I wanna put them. Ordered a intercooler this morning so hopefully I'll have that for this weekend, here's a few pics anyways.

Finished up the pass side header just gotta weld it all up. Picked up an extended can this weekend wasn't really planned but it was a good deal I couldn't pass up. Gonna have tha can mounted this weekend hopefully and maybe start a cage for it.




Had to cut out sections for the cab to sit how I wanted it.

Got body mounts made today and put a new crossmember under the cab. Gonna order some tube for a cage this week. I think I'm just gonna use CREW due to the crazy price of DOM for the amount I use the truck I think it will be fine.

What are you doing for steering? Did you cut the frame at the box?

And one last question, what does you bump stop hit on? I am putting the same style bump on mine and I was looking at using the track bar mount.
