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.
I cut the frame just after the box do its still stock location.
There is a bump pad right in the center of the tube it lands on I'll get some more pics of it tonight.

About time for a update I geuss!!
Been real busy with work lately, also burned 2 weekends up with a good friend that was on military leave but well worth it to hang out with him.
Picked up a used hoist its a benwil 8000lb.
So this weekend I got the front frame all tacked together and got the radiator and inter cooler mounted up. Just gotta drill a few holes and mount the winch.
Onto the pics.
AF ratio

Bosch 044

Motor basically done

Testing the hoist!!


Winch is nice and tight


A buddy had fun with a label maker




Thinking of running my crossover pipe through here any opinions it is Linda close to the fans and the accessories

Think you could run a passenger side manifold on the drivers side, flipped front to rear. Then go down and under the crank pulley. Just not sure on space with the oil filter/relocater.

I may be able to but im not sure, gonna have to tinker with it more this week ive only got about 2'' of room from the head to the stock steering shaft. I may build a skinnier steering shaft to give me a little more room. Ive gotta try and keep it away from the lower coolant hose also.

Well got a little done this weekend, rebuilt the front frame again gonna run the radiator in the back. So winch is mounted up front and the inter cooler is as well. Mounted the rear fenders so I can mount the radiator off them.
Few pics

I think im gonna try and get some tube this week and start a roll cage, basically just a bed cage for now to mount the radiator and tranny coolers. Finished up my bed sides tonight and started looking at tire mount ideas.
Was thinking something like this what do you guys think?



And was thinking of mounting these up here reverse and tail lights.

Radiator is just about done and mounted.
The bolts sit in a hole and push the radiator down I'm gonna add a few little tabs too.


Little bracing for the lower mount plate.
