I also disagree with the statement about twisted trails being a waste of time. If you haven't been yet, Go. They are undergoing new management that is improving the park and camping areas. Also very open to suggestions. There is new stuff going in before extreme truck as well.



If you want an extra set of knuckles i have mine for sale. I'll make you a killer deal on lol


That would be nice. I'm currently going to run the hi steer arms that came on it until I break something then I'll upgrade from there.

I guess it's personal preference but with my experience I would say it's worth it for Kirk. I'd be willing to give them another shot, I always go watch extreme truck anyways, maybe I'll drag my jeep out if it's finished

I'm good for now, I'll keep you posted.

It's been a long ass time since I posted here...but my jeep has come quite a ways. KP 60 installed, 5.13s, locker, full hydro, beadlocks, Yukon 35spl all the way across with Yukon hard core hubs, and probably much more stuff. I'll try to post some pics later.

Current plans for the rear for winter are fuel cell in place so I can long arm, then I want to stretch about 10" and double triangulate the rear. I also have a couple 14b's that I picked up, if I get around to it I might get one of those in place as well.

Current plans for the front this winter are about a 4" stretch, and triangulate the front. I'm more worried about the back right now so we'll see if this actually happens.

Any questions let me know or if you want pics of something specific

Rip to my 44. Separated 2 ball joints and lost the knuckle.



Practicing my welding burning on the Artec full hydro truss



Installed full hydro in the parking lot at Rausch Creek...that was an experience.



Beadlocks got mounted in the parking lot as well.



Burnout pic of my buddy laying on his side at rausch creek.



Pic of just how bent my old d44 was.



Drummond Island with the crew a few weeks ago. Turtle ridge was a blast like always, best park in MI in my opinion.

Picked up another 14b two days ago that I think I'm going to call mine. 2004 10.5" complete including brakes for $200.

Side note, had a coworker roll his truck and he's offering me the engine and trans. I believe it's an LQ4, hoping to get the VIN later and look it up. What is a fair price for the engine? Trans? Wiring harness? Everything together?

Market value right now on that setup assuming Gen 3 (99-05ish) probably 1500-2000.

It's a 2002 LQ4. Just got the VIN. When he rolled his truck he broke his neck (C4) so he can't do anything for a while. What would be a decent price for if I had to pull it? I originally offered him $600.

I found a $650 LQ4 on craigslist and thought that was the price range but now that I'm looking I'm seeing it's worth more. We'll see what he says

I gave $1250 for my lq4/4L80e, harness and ecm. For reference. That was just a local guy selling on Craigslist.

No go on my co workers roll over. More than I wanted to pay for something I had to pull myself.

I did however get a hold of a buddy at a local salvage yard, and I'm getting a 6.0/4l80/ecm/wiring harnesses already pulled for $800. He's going to let me know when they get their next 4x4 6.0 truck in. Right now they only have 2wd.

I'm also going to pick up a pallet of 99-07 14 bolts and dana 60s when I head down there in the next month or so hopefully.

2wd is better imo.

The 2wd output shaft is splined full length so you can trim it to your desired length.

The 4wd 4L80e has two wheel speed sensors, one in the trans and one in the tcase. If you don't have a good way to get that same reading off a different case, it can play havoc.

The 2wd trans has two sensors, both in the trans. Makes it pretty easy.

Finally starting on my 14b rear. Grizzly and gears showed up for it, working through suspension now. Going to try and mimic Genright's rear cross member, and combine it with this truss. Plus one to who know which vehicle on gl4x4 already has this truss...I don't take credit for drawing the whole truss up.

Also I bought a model 32 bender, and bendtech pro for whenever I find time to work on my own project. I've been spending too much time on other peoples stuff.

I want to say thanks and take credit, but it wasnít me that designed it. Iím just going to slightly modify the mounting location of the link brackets for my application.

I am however going to design my own backbone truss similar to the Artec one and then tie it into this one.

Side note, the company across the street from me has great prices on everything fastener related. $0.17 for a grade 8 5/16 fine thread.

Got my bender hooked up to a car hoist pump and 10 ton ram. Works like a charm. Hoping to finally start on my Jeep in the next few weeks.



And Iíve been knocking out a few bumpers for people.
