3/24 progress (a.m.)...

Here are some shots of our a.m. progress (after a good breakfast to get us fueled up). AND it's high time to start a little GIVEAWAY. Go to our Facebook page for details on how to win your choice of a RockSolid t-shirt or hat.




*****

Mike & Robert working on the front axle/suspension install (3/23).



Minor wiring mod (4 wires) is currently underway. This will allow us to retain the OEM Jeep cruise control arm/switch with the GM driveline.



Metalcloak rear armor installed (along with the front armor & rocker guards).



The new GM driveline w/Atlas 4-speed transfer case. It's not prominent in this photo, but we designed a custom mounting bracket for a Tom Woods-sourced pinion e-brake using the OEM e-brake lever.



The RockSolid team working on the final exhaust fit, as well as a line lock install (just for fun!).

"All work and no play..."

NO WAY! Beejers took a lunchtime run on the test course (warming up his tires).



dougstephvoor stopped in today (and had to get in on the fun, too). Good seeing you, Doug.

No, that's Gordon (the other RockSolid co-owner).

What say you, Doug? Good meeting you in-person finally. Here's beejers' little contribution to your 4x4 fix. (I'm riding shotgun with dougstephvoor.)

This shows the subtlety of the MoTech Cruise Control and Tap Shift Kit (allowing manual shifting of your GM auto transmission). The small green LED is the only difference from the stock controller.



This is our RockSolid-modified 35-spline full-float, (Ford) Unit Bearing with ABS sensors for flanged 1-ton rear axles...in this case, a Dana 60 rear.



But the biggest news???









The JK body is now back on the rolling chassis!!! (Please excuse the iPhone video "jitters"). Our in-shop crane made fairly easy work of this.

Nice work... I mean it's no bolt on long travel rzr suspension or sweet wired up led light bar, but it's pretty cool.

With the great progress this weekend (in just 2 days), we started the morning a little later, and first enjoyed a great breakfast at a local country cafe.

On the list for this morning (and currently in-progress)...installing a home-brew 1" body lift to gain some additional clearance in a couple areas, making custom mounting brackets for the intercooler-related parts, getting the Atlas shifters adjusted (just completed a few minutes ago), adjusting the e-brake linkage, etc.

Here's our front suspension, steering set-up, and our RockSolid Steering Sector Shaft Brace & Track Bar.


The finished Metalcloak front suspension.


Driveshafts are installed, and exhaust is complete.


Custom air intake (including mass air flow sensor) built with misc. parts.


Atlas shifters installed!
