Here's a shot of the steering in its beginning stages.

I didn't see if you mentioned it, who's arms and steering are you using?

Looking forward to the pics with lots of air between the sand and the Jeep.

No one's Ryan at Lenger Racing modified e150 kingpin beams and he is custom making everything else like radius arms, cross member with arm mounts, beam mounts, all the plating, shock hoops, rear four link, and the cage. He closed the shop this week and is only working on this to get it done for delivery tomorrow night. We're all pretty excited here.

Congrat's with doing something like this. This is right up there in coolness with a TTB avalanche I saw on GFB I think.

I often look at oddball things and wonder how sick they would be with long travel Twin I beam stuff...

I met him up at the dunes memorial weekend this year. He had a little trophy truck up there. He was a nice guy. And I liked the fact that he did not brag his company up.
I've seen a lot of his work. He knows what he is doing!

That pro lite was a truck he prepared for Mike Higgins. Ryan and his wife are two extremely nice people.

That's what I said in the first post. We don't have the jeep back yet. I'm just documenting the progress then when it gets delivered, it will be pics from us installing motor, wiring and body work.
