Haha yea,been busy on it,got all the front stuff in but the steering extensions. Aaron is going to overnight them. I got the arms all painted and need to get the balljoints pressed in. The rear is done and would be on the wheels if the tards at adapt-it sent my the right lugs for my adapters, Should be here today though or tomorrow. Took the leafs apart and got my full droop and bump figured out for optimal upper shock mount placement. So now I'll start the bedcage today. Also had to shorten my driveshaft 2.5". I'll have some pics later today

wellllll i hit another awesome bump in the road..the world is against me. i was trying to fix a metal cover on the compressor motor and it flipped while i was pushing on it pretty hard and it got me between my middle and ring finger on my left hand. just got back from stiches though which was real quick. it split my hand about an inch or so, and pretty much as deep as you can get. i think i'm going to call it, i got spocked lol...

just a few pics from progress today. was a long day in the sun and dealing with my hand, but went pretty good. For my first time working with tube,bender,and a notcher it went great I think. Tomorrow I'm going to finish the cage up quick and get started on the front end. I didnt get my new adapter lugs so I'm pretty pissed about that, Think I might have to find some cheap f150 lugs and cut a 1/2" off the top and make my own till I get the real one..cause I want to drive this thing asap before I go.
