Wow, only 29 hrs. Kind of a boring build thread being only 3 pages.

End tally was 43 hours. Just a few adjustments and things to change up from here. I still need to flex it and check front driveshaft and stuff like that. Also need to change the steering gear, this box is fubared.

more pics
Next to my wifes stock 98


The ass






My door is at 6'8 ish, 10 psi in the tires.


Getting an alignment this morning.


Looks like 7"s of susp. lift in the end. Bit of death wobble over 30 mph. But with unbalanced 38.5's on beadlocks, and a trashy steering gear, and I think either new trac bar bushings or maybe going to heims, should be alright.

Hasn't been driven since the alignment, better steering gear was put on, and we replaced the gravel in the front hubs with new bearings and grease last night, I am sure that helped a little.
