truth...Plus, jeep guys actually like having at least one fullsize around, I can pull a jeep out of the mud, even if it's stuck balls deep, in 2wd. The shitty part is that it usually takes at least 2 of them to get me out of a mud puddle, and they're gettin it in 4 lo, and I'm barely moving....

Got some new to me interco tsl's in the 33"x12.5"x16.5" for 300 with rims. It had 33's previos to this, but they were badly worn, and I needed something to get me around for a while until I can convince my wife to let me buy some h1's with military takeoffs.

Checking for clearance made a few thinmgs apparent, my washer fluid res had to go, and to make 38's fit (what I plan on running after I work all the bugs out) I was going to need to massage the fenders a bit with the sawzall.

exhaust is all welded up custom like, took all the stock pipe and reused it, and only had to add about 18" of filler to make it all work out.



No extensions were needed to make my O2 sensors plug in.




Tolerances are tight under there, but no rubbing what so ever.





I can take everything apart without hacking it all up again. I used flotec header collectors and mated them together to make simple disconnect points for ease of removal.

I don't mind carnage one bit, you can see that this truck requires no finess when driving through tight trails, but most of the time the carnage happens to some over confident jeep driver who thinks it really can go anywhere lol! My gas pedal and steering wheel are well oiled machines who know their job and when to take it easy...

Yes, yes I do, and I'm coming for you and your family lol! It is actually much stronger than the stock shackle hangers. It's made from 1/4 channel, and 2"x1/4 wall dom. Problem?

The innards to my newly acquired 14 bolt. It's a gov bomb with 4:10 gearing, daddy likey!


The housing waiting to mate with it's new home.

The link is for the spring pad kit I bought for the new axle. It is a nice quality piece, but not really for full sizes, unless you're using a dually axle. I had to modify it quite a bit to get it work with the width of my axle, but all is good.

This link is for the disc break conversion.

I bought this cover hoping to do a partial shave for now, It sucks though, their claim of a 3/8" wide sealing surface is bull shit, I have 3/16" of sealing surface left, and the bottom is so thin, I could probably put a hole in it with screwdriver. I'm going to have my buddy weld a piece of 1/4 plate to the bottom, overlapping the bottom of the cover for extra piece of mind. he's also welding my tubes to the center section, some day, when I finally get it over there.

For a shave kit? I'd rather build my own. It's pretty easy, just time consuming, but I'm cheap, and time is cheaper than money. Plus, I'd rather use tmr customs shave kit, since I already have a cover.

Thank you, it was definitely fun, but time consuming since it's not exactly a bolt on kit!
