Got the tank installed today and put 10 gallons of gas in it so we know it holds at least that much Actually the gauge read half tank so im guessing it should hold at least 15 gallons. Fired up the motor and the new exhaust is loud but actually sounds pretty good. Then i got the gas tank skid cut up to fit the new tank.

well got the new shocks and springs on the back, limit staps on and buttoned up the back end. Then got the front axle squared up and put back together then backed it outside to have a look.

well axle shafts showed up finally. one side slid right in and the other side would not fit thru the spindle . so i had to turn one axle down slightly in the lathe then all was good. took it on a test drive and all seemed good twisted it up a little and with a little more trimming hear and there should be all good. Did notice at the end of the day the exhaust melted one of the control arm bushings so i guess i will be making a heat shield and replacing a bushing tomorrow.





this one is with the stock front sway bar hooked up


the rest of these are with no front sway bar just rear antirock hooked up
