I finally started to install some parts that I've been collecting ... I still plan on having it ready for the 1st.







Truss for the front should be in this week and installed by the end of next weekend ... then driveshafts (Dynotech Engineering) and hydraulic assit steering.

Close. :tonka: To the bottom of the lowest part of the "frame" is ~30"
There's not a lot of weight to be too top heavy, but I may plan on recentering the wheels once I put a cage in it ... if this one lasts that long.

Why would I read your sig? I know who you are, where you live & how you drive.

That's why you need a cage.

Actually I think it will be pretty cool.

Ready by Dec?

Don't know yet ... front axle will be in this weekend. I do know however the front and rear driveshafts will be within 1" of each other, so their interchangeable and I only need one spare ... that'll be cool, huh?

You think you can be my tool b*tch since I've been you're winch b*tch before? Question Jim: what grease did you use for your ctm's?


I ran into a snag ... high steer arms are interferring with my wheels. I guess it wheel spacers for now.

I don't have CTM's, I have the Jantz joints from Randy's R&P. They don't use a grease. It is a high quality anti seize. The copper colored stuff. 2 years now and not a lick of trouble. Put a squirt in each cap every couple outings & good to go.
