A few updates
Crossmember/transfer case skid Ironman made


Passenger side frame support, and control arm mounts.


We had to put a slight bend in the front radius arms to get the mounts closer to the frame. Thanks ron86toy for helping Ironman and I on that one


Front axle is in.....temporarily:tonka:


The Brown truck delivered a Tom Woods NVG242 SYE and new rear driveshaft. Hopefully get that installed within' the next week. Ironman also got the RE shocks in this week, so time to fab up some mounts. Frame side tracbar mount is started, but we need to do the steering first to make sure the trac bar doesn't interfere with it. I'll post more pics this week.

Looks good Mike.....like the skid .......see if Pat will put a sleeve over the d-shaft for you...my TW's shaft looks like a candy cane.....they make great shafts just really thin wall.I have been meaning to pull it out and put a sleeve over it.

No, that might actually be tomorrow, as I have an issue with the steering(might hold us for a while). I don't think I'll use a sawzall tho'....Pat has something else he told me to use.
