Still need to finish the double sheer and diff brace for the upper.



Frame notched for coil bucket.



Little present for Kirby.


To fit with his current hood sticker.

He could afford them if he would stop paying us for work we are willing to do in trade for parts.

I paid for the $2 in used 44 mag casings out of pocket... at this rate I will catch up and be "evens" with him soon enough

Until he signs over his house to you.:tonka:

It's going to be pretty funny when we're in the mountains in Tellico and Kirby drops his pants and makes you blow him.

Yay, progress.

Rear truss/upper mount/skeletor house. (3" Ballistic Fab uniball, nice part )



Upper link done.




Rear upper shock mounts moved to GenRight skid.


Rear suspension mock up done.


Rear at a little past full droop (will need limiting straps for drive shaft angles)
