I know a fine little shop in Silver Lake that will sell you one for $45. hahahaha

Also if you need any misalignment spacers, let me know. I can make them for free.

I've actually been thinking about getting a set for the dunes to mess with in the next year or so. then I'll just keep them on my rear as spares and switch them out when need be. cause that silver lake sand can be super soft

This is mainly just some notes for me to check off on things I want to get done before the dunes trip.

- 4.88 gears front diff.
- Aussie Locker front dff.
- Install gears, Locker and axles in front diff.
- Relocate battery to bedcage
- Alignment
- Build sliders
- Rebuild rear shocks, check/change shim stacks and remove bleed screws.

And if time/money permits before trip, Seats/harnesess and just a nice belt hoop in cab for now. I really want seats and cage asap as it feels and is much safer for what i want to be doing. but I'll just take it easy ( heh..right) this first trip and build it up over summer. I also have been thinking about the idea of a clean exo built into the sliders and tied into the front and back. Then just having the hoop inside for the seats, over the interior cage. I could build it much easier/faster and it would also give me some more purpose when I want to push this thing on some of the trails around here. I dont want this thing to just be for jumping dunes, I need it to become a very multi purpose IFS truck to get my money out of it. It would end up looking like a post apacalyptic prerunner of sorts. It may sound strange But I'm thinking I can make it look pretty Rad.

That second pair is a great deal,and about the seat I'd be getting. Even if it was 150 to ship. 300 beats 500+ anyday. Very tempting.

Also just remembered I'm a 4 door, so an exo would suck having to leave out tube on the ext. Cab area or box it in and never use them. So interior cage more likely or combo of sorts

Jegs has racing seats that are about $90 shipped. They are plastic and have a vinyl cover on them.

Or you could go with a Aluminum circle track seat. Put er' hard into them left turns!
