Looks great. Glad to see it under it's own weight.

Do you know what you're going to do for a front bumper?

x2 man, you do some great work. I probably missed it earlier on but what travel are you expecting up and down in front and rear?

front is 7 up 7 down
rear is 8 up 5 down -- I cant remember Beard helped me with that but the rear shocks are 16" travel

Charlie -- nobody has said anything..right now it looks like a complete truck so nobody should complain..but when it was just a truck with no axles I can kinda see it..

haha -- I wish I could go break it..

I still have a list that is as tall as me..

its just rolling,
the rear need gears and some other special stuff
brakes
front shaft
steering
front axle needs shafts
cage
bumpers
mount sliders
mount radiator
mount condenser
mount tranny cooler
front shock truss
brace the rear some more
mount train horns with air supply
rear lights


bedsides mounted (which im not to concerned about for now)
modify tranny mount
efan
run battery cables


thats just off the top of my head and its A LOT and pricey crap..so now that it can roll it makes it a lot easier tho..so thats a big step!

haha yeah -- you just gotta start somewhere and complete..

Hey question -- I need to flip some of the joints on the links to get the grease fitting facing the right way to grease and so they dont get broke off in my extreme driveway crawling Im plannin to do. Do I need to put jackstands under it or brace it up to just drop one end of a link to spin it and put it back in? I dont want it falling but thinking if I do brace it up then the pressure will get off of it and I can do it easier..
